Roosevelt said, The only thing we have to fear is fear itself, he was saying that the emotion of fear, rather than the reality of what we fear, is the cause of associated anxiety, stress and unhappiness.
Fearless Leadership is based on this premise. Just think: What would you dare to dream, be or do if you were able to overcome your fears? Fortunately, the habit of courage can be learned!
