Fear as your barometer.

Any step you take in the direction of your dreams will be accompanied by the rumbling sound of your fear mobilizing the defense. 

Fear's only job is to keep you safe. But you don't need to be kept safe from your purpose, and your desires are not the wild animals from which your fear single-mindedly and mistakenly believes you must be protected.

Hear your fear. Don't listen to it.

Understand fear. Don't believe it.

Expect fear.

Don't stop.
