President Franklin D. Roosevelt
said “We have nothing to fear
but fear itself”
And yet we have people getting on national television and telling us to be fearful.
We Have Presidents and Vice presidents telling us to be fearful.
We have drug companies telling us to fear cancer, to fear disease, and wage war against disease.
We Have the news media, telling us to be fearful of the killer bees, the bird flu, terrorists, be fearful of you name it.
Do you ever wonder what happened? Well a few hundred people died of the bird flu. More people die from getting vaccinated from the flu every year, than everyone around the world total who have died from the bird flu.
More people die in car crashes every year, than died in 9-11 from terrorists.
When you are in a state of fear, people can control you. People can make you do and say things you normally wouldn’t say.
People wonder why I don’t watch TV.
When you are in a fear state, you are not in a growth state. Fear invokes the natural fight or flight response, which shuts down growth and healing. Because in the old days, if there was a tiger, and you didn’t get away from the tiger with your flight or fight response, who cares about healing and growth. There is nothing to heal and grow.
America has been in a state of fear since 9-11.
Is it really a surprise that as a nation, we have not grown, have not prospered, have not healed?
It is not a surprise to me. We as Americans must move beyond fear. We must move past fear. Because until we do, America will continue to decline as it has over the last 6 years.
Don’t take it any more.
Don’t let the media, the public officials, or anyone cause fear in you.
