When new challenges or unforeseen circumstances pop into your life, they are usually of the growth kind. They come to give you a nudge, a push, a stretch beyond your comfort zones. They shake things up a bit. But that's good thing, and of great value.

Fear is not to be banished or avoided. It is one of life's greatest teachers, and much can be learned, something that can make you stronger and wiser.

Real growth occurs when we undergo some uncomfortable things. Real progress is made when we walk through it. Real courage is gained by allowing it.

Never resist your fears, for they are a rich source of insight. The experiences and circumstances that push you through your fears will no doubt lead you to discover unimagined strength and power.

If there is something you fear at this moment, sit with it, don't resist it. Let your fear tell you what it wants from you. Let your fear show you what needs to be rectified in order to move forward.

Never allow fear to paralyze you. But seek to understand it.
