“Don’t be afraid of your fears. They’re not there to scare you. They’re there to let you know that something is worth it.” – C. JoyBell

How can you not laugh at this video?
I just don’t understand how this big dog is afraid of carpet. He’s scared to touch it – as if the very thing will jump up and bite him. We all watch the video and laugh, thinking “how cute he’s afraid of nothing.” The carpet will do absolutely nothing to this dog, but somehow it’s paralyzed him with fear to stop in the doorway.
I wonder if this is the same way others look at us when we allow fear stop us in the pursuit of our goals?

I get it. I have been there. It’s hard to ignore what someone else is doing, and seeing you’re not getting the same kick. Learn to make a note, but not devote heart to it.
