Fearlessness

If there's one thing that life has taught me, it's that fear is a sign of weakness, a sign of cowardice. Fear is a brick wall specifically designed to keep you from fulfilling that bucket list you scribbled on that vintage leather notebook that night that summer. It's a bat, or a hundred of them, surrounding Bruce Wayne and his Batmobile. It's Clark Kent's close proximity to green kryptonite, hindering you from reaching your true potential.

Because once you demolish that wall, brick by brick, row by row, that's when things start to change. That's when Batman puts on his utility belt to save Gotham City from corruption. That's when the reporter for the Daily Planet in Metropolis goes into the telephone booth and changes into a blue, red, and yellow costume, complete with a cape, to stop the large meteor heading towards Earth.

And yes, while I do understand that we are no comic book superheroes, there is nothing stopping us from becoming one. Flying without worrying about gravity may be a long way away, true. But leaping over a tall building in a single bound, high enough so as to help you get over your fear of heights, could be one way to go.

Whatever your strategy, just remember that fear is the only thing coming between you and wherever your heart wants you to go. So be fearless, and don't let it.
