Amateurs have no fear

Amateurs have no fear

Do you deal with fear…ever?  If you said “no”, then you are either not human or you are dead.  Fear is a really good thing to have, because it will help keep you alive physically and mentally.  I know, because I face it all the time.

In my role as an AirShow pilot, initially it was full of fear.  The whole concept of tumbling in the air with an airplane strapped to your seat is phycotic at best.  Through the years, I have learned to manage the fear and compartmentalize it mentally.  But, I also know that if I get too comfortable, that is also a potential killer.

So embrace your fear, no matter what it is and learn how to overcome it.

Here is a great quote, especially if you are new at something and there is a little fear cooking in you.

Never be afraid to try something new. Remember, amateurs built the ark, professionals built the Titanic.
