What you lose because of fear

By David Assoulin  There are a lot of things that you can lose from fear. Let’s say you have an idea but you’re too afraid to say it. One example, if a teacher is teaching a math class on how to multiply, but the class doesn’t understand it. If you have an idea on how to do it, but you’re too scared that everyone in your class will call you a ‘nerd’, you may cause the whole class to suffer through a test which no one but you knows the answers to. Let’s say, you’re in business and sales are dropping but you have an idea how to bring back the business. If you’re too afraid that the business owner will disapprove it, you may leave yourself with no job.
