"For the thing which I greatly feared is come upon me, and that which I was afraid of is come unto me."
— Job 3:25
There are those who go about their daily activities and do not realize how much fear is involved in their lives. Most of the ones who are successful realize positive thoughts bring prosperity. Those who are not very successful do not realize how the negative thoughts and the negative actions they take affect the end results of what they are trying to accomplish.
The ones who recognize how the negative energy and thoughts affect the end results are the ones who practice the spiritual activities to overcome the thoughts of fear and replace those negative thoughts with positive thoughts.
The fear I am referring to is not the fear of being run over by a train but rather the fear brought on by thoughts of lack, the fear of not being good enough, the fear of not being pretty enough, the fear of not being tall enough, the fear of not having enough education, the fear of not being accepted by others, and the list goes on and on. It is those kinds of thoughts which can drag one down to a level where it makes it easier to quit than to try for a little longer and maybe things will get better...
