Facing fear

There are groups of fear faced by human beings:

  • fear of poverty,
  • fear of criticism,
  • fear of ill health,
  • fear of loss of love,
  • fear of old age and,
  • fear of death.

It is not surprising that fear of poverty tops this heavy list:

“This fear paralyzes the faculty of reason,
destroys the faculty of imagination,
kills self-reliance,
undermines enthusiasm,
discourages initiative,
leads to uncertainty of purpose,
encourages procrastination and,
makes self-control an impossibility.”
