I once read a self-help book entitled "Love is Letting Go of Fear." The basic premiss of it was that you cannot love something and fear it at the same time. The two are mutually exclusive. You must choose if you are going to love something or fear it. Today I read a quote from Jon Gordon, basically the same principle. Here it is:
Love the struggle because it makes you appreciate your accomplishments.
Love challenges because they make you stronger.
Love competition because it makes you better
Love negative people because they make you more positive.
Love those who have hurt you because they teach you forgiveness.
Love fear because it makes you courageous.
The secret to life and the greatest success strategy of all is to love all of it and fear none of it.
