Fear quotes page 3
Most of life is on-the-job training. Some of the most important things can only be learned

get any feedback, and therefore you never get to improve.

The ego is not who you really are. The ego is your self-image; it is your social mask; it is the
role you are playing. Your social mask thrives on approval. It wants to control, and it is

completely free of those things. It is immune to criticism, it is unfearful of any challenge, and
it feels beneath no one.

imperfections. If we cannot love ourselves, we cannot fully open to our ability to love others
or our potential to create.

to fuck with me, you can't last two minutes in my world bitch. Look you scared now, you

Mike Tyson, to a reporter

strategy is to learn to bring your attention back to the present.
