Facing the Enemies Within
发布时间:2017-03-20 23:39:00  来源:

We are not born with courage, but neither are we born with fear. Maybe some of our fears are brought on by your own experiences, by what someone has told you, by what youve read in the papers. Some fears are valid, like walking alone in a bad part of town at two oclock in the morning. But once you learn to avoid that situation, you wont need to live in fear of it.

 

Fears, even the most basic ones, can totally destroy our ambitions. Fear can destroy fortunes. Fear can destroy relationships. Fear, if left unchecked, can destroy our lives. Fear is one of the many enemies lurking inside us.

 

Let me tell you about five of the other enemies we face from within. The first enemy that youve got to destroy before it destroys you is indifference. What a tragic disease this is! “Ho-hum, let it slide. Ill just drift along.” Heres one problem with drifting: you cant drift your way to the to of the mountain.

 

The second enemy we face is indecision. Indecision is the thief of opportunity and enterprise. It will steal your chances for a better future. Take a sword to this enemy.

 

The third enemy inside is doubt. Sure, theres room for healthy skepticism. You cant believe everything. But you also cant let doubt take over. Many people doubt the past, doubt the future, doubt each other, doubt the government, doubt the possibilities nad doubt the opportunities. Worse of all, they doubt themselves. Im telling you, doubt will destroy your life and your chances of success. It will empty both your bank account and your heart. Doubt is an enemy. Go after it. Get rid of it.

 

The fourth enemy within is worry. Weve all got to worry some. Just dont let conquer you. Instead, let it alarm you. Worry can be useful. If you step off the curb in New York City and a taxi is coming, youve got to worry. But you cant let worry loose like a mad dog that drives you into a small corner. Heres what youve got to do with your worries: drive them into a small corner. Whatever is out to get you, youve got to get it. Whatever is pushing on you, youve got to push back.

 

The fifth interior enemy is overcaution. It is the timid approach to life. Timidity is not a virtue; its an illness. If you let it go, itll conquer you. Timid people dont get promoted. They dont advance and grow and become powerful in the marketplace. Youve got to avoid overcaution.

 

Do battle with the enemy. Do battle with your fears. Build your courage to fight whats holding ou back, whats keeping you from your goals and dreams. Be courageous in your life and in your pursuit of the things you want and the person you want to become.
