As a service to my fellow brothers and sisters desiring to live out their calling to make this world a better place, I’m issuing a series of Public Service Announcements. There are dream assassins on the loose and today’s PSA is to be on the alert for Most Unwanted #1: Fear.
Public Service Announcement
- Causes failure to start on your dream or outright abandonment.
- Challenges anything that creates discomfort, like experimentation, risk, or personal change. Prefers you stay with the devil you know.
- Incapacitates action. Demands absolute certainty before making decisions.
- Suppresses longings.
- Fosters chronic anxiety.
- Prone to excite disproportionate anger and unwarranted defensiveness.
- Incompatible with joy. Thankless.
