When Andrew Noseworthy asked Seth Godin how he would take over the world if he were another James Bond villian, Seth Godin simply replied and I quote:

I’d release a pheremone that increases the fear that people have about doing great things. It would only increase it by 3%, but that would be enough to wipe out most competition…

I hope that’s convincing enough for us all to overcome whatever fears we have: fear of starting, fear of failing, fear of living, fear of non-existence, fear of the future, and the fear list goes on…Ξ¦

  1. oh! God bless you for this. Like its been said, our greatest fear is not that we are inadequate, but that we are powerful beyond measure. Fear is a terrible thing, and i like that response from Seth, he understands the power of fear

  3. Fear comes from two basic sources: ignorance, or guilt and shame. We fear what we do not understand, or we fear the things that will expose the fragile, broken, false, or missing parts of our lives that we’d rather others don’t see. Really the only way to overcome those fears is to wrestle with those issues and grow secure in your own skin. Fear begins to ebb away when you know who you are and what you’re about.
