Is Fearlessness Good?

Is Fearlessness Good? |

“Fear keeps us focused on the past or worried about the future. If we can acknowledge our fear, we can realize that right now we are okay. Right now, today, we are still alive, and our bodies are working marvelously. Our eyes can still see the beautiful sky. Our ears can still hear the voices of our loved ones.”

-Thich Nhat Hanh

So many of us think fearlessness is the answer. If we could just be fearless, we think we could unlock some secret to happiness. Instead, what if we gave fear a little hat tip and kept moving forward in the present moment? What could change for you?

What do you think? Should we hold fearlessness up as a goal?
