Look your lion in the eye

The lion takes its fierceness from your fear.

Walk up to the lion, and he will disappear,

run away and he runs after you.

– Florence Scovel Shinn, The Secret Door to Success

According to sources online, if you do ever encounter a lion:

  • Look it in the eye
  • Never turn your back on it
  • Never, never run from it

Literally the same can go for how we deal with fear in our own lives.

Fear is defined as a distressing emotion aroused by impending danger, evil,

pain, etc., whether the threat is real or imagined.

So even though it may take on the personification of a lion in our mind, we

should not treat it as such. By doing so, we are giving it the power to hold us

hostage and mentally enslave us. For the thing we fear the most will probably

never happen.
