On its face, fear is neither good nor bad. It’s simply part of our biological makeup. It can be beneficial in that fear warns us of potential danger and is a key component of our self-preservation.

However, if allowed to run wild, fear can also sabotage our long-success and stifle us. It can rob us of one of the most important experiences we stand to gain in life: failure.
