Distinguish between rational fears, with real consequences, and irrational fears, where there really aren’t any consequences. (Tim Ferris)
Fragments from imaginary dialogues
“How can I become antifragile?”
“Aim not just for courage, but fearlessness.“
“Isn’t fear useful? It keeps us alive.”
“Some fears are useful; most fears are useless. Useless fears are irrational. Useless fears are the main obstacle that keeps you from reaching your potential.
Whenever you experience fear, ask yourself:
Is this a useful or a useless fear?
Every time you identify a useless fear, practice fearlessness.”
