Fear can be a valuable asset. It's a sign to do whatever it is we fear.
It's there to guide us but also intimidate us. It challenges us in our faith, it dares us to leap, and mocks us when we don't have the courage to engage.
But, equally, it's there to compel us to stretch further and when we don't it's honest in telling us we're not ready to play in the big leagues and put something of value at risk.
It's a friend that never leaves us, pointing us in the direction we should go but also giving us tough love.
The more we embrace fear the more we learn to dance with it and appreciate the direction it leads us in.
If you want to know what you should be doing next you just need to look towards what you fear the most.
