I got this Facebook status from Jomar Hilario’s Facebook Group where I’m currently a member.
Zig Ziglar, best-selling author and renowned motivational speaker, advises that fear should not be allowed to run rampant through our lives so that it becomes such a devastating factor that it produces failure. There really is “healthy fear,” he says.
“Fear of ignorance causes you to seek an education, and fear of poverty makes you work. Fear of disease motivates you to practice healthy and sanitary living. Fear of losing your job will inspire you to show up on time and do the best you know how to do. Fear of failing a class will drive a student to spend extra time in the books. Fear of losing our family inspires us to be faithful to them, work hard for them, and show them love on a daily basis.”
