My life used to be like that game of freeze tag we played as kids. Once tagged, you had to freeze in the position you were in. Whenever something happened, I'd freeze like a statue, too afraid of moving the wrong way, of making the wrong decision. The problem is, if you stand still too long, that's your decision.
That's the whole key to anything: Don't be afraid to fail. And Bernie Mac is not afraid to fail.
Obstacles are like wild animals. They are cowards but they will bluff you if they can. If they see you are afraid of them... they are liable to spring upon you; but if you look them squarely in the eye, they will slink out of sight.
Orison Swett Marden
Doubt can motivate you, so don't be afraid of it. Confidence and doubt are at two ends of the scale, and you need both. They balance each other out.
I think making friends is not being afraid to look stupid, because everyone wants a friend who is willing to be stupid and fun. If you try and be too cool, it only works in high school. After that, being uncool is a very cool thing to do. So just have fun, and don't worry what other people think of you and people will want to be your friends.
It was high counsel that I once heard given to a young person, 'always do what you are afraid to do.'
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Injustice is censured because the censures are afraid of suffering, and not from any fear which they have of doing injustice.
I am deliberate and afraid of nothing.
Practically everybody knows what it's like to feel anxious, worried, nervous, afraid, uptight, or panicky. Often, anxiety is just a nuisance, but sometimes it can cripple you and prevent you from doing what you really want with your life. But I have some great news for you: You can change the way you feel.
David D. Burns
Indeed, I was so afraid to dishonour my friends and family by my indiscreet actions, that I rather chose to be accounted a fool, than to be thought rude or wanton.
Losers are people who are afraid of losing.
Whatever fortune brings, don't be afraid of doing things.
I am not afraid that the book will be controversial, I'm afraid it will not be controversial.
I'm afraid the SS's relationship with the Catholic Church is something the Church still has to deal with and does not deny.
I was afraid of the internet... because I couldn't type.
I am not afraid of the pen, or the scaffold, or the sword. I will tell the truth wherever I please.
As a vulnerability researcher, the greatest barrier I see is our low tolerance for vulnerability. We're almost afraid to be happy. We feel like it's inviting disaster.
An ugly sight, a man who is afraid.
I think the enemy is self-censorship. In a free society the biggest danger is that you're afraid to the point where you censor yourself.
The only thing Martha and I have in common is that we both used to model. Martha Stewart is extremely talented. Her designs are picture perfect. Our philosophy is life is messy, and rather than being afraid of those messes we design products that work the way we live.
I am only interested in the ideas that become obsessive and make me feel uneasy. The ideas that I'm afraid of.
I grew up as a Mormon, and that had more of an impact on my values than my beliefs. I'm afraid I will always feel the weight of a lie. I'm very hard on myself anyway. Religious guilt carries over too. You can't really misbehave without feeling badly about it. At least, I can't.
They were afraid, never having learned what I taught myself: Defeat the fear of death and welcome the death of fear.
G. Gordon Liddy
Intimacy is something to be cherished, and intimacy is not something to be afraid of.
Some people get into this business and they're so afraid to lose anything. They try to protect their position like clinging to a beachhead. These actors end up making really safe choices. I never wanted to go that route. If I go down, I'm going down swinging.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
John F. Kennedy
