Dear Jude, there are things in this life that will scare you senseless; they may scare you so much that you turn away from them, turn against them, insist you despise them. In some cases, you may turn out to be quite right to hate them. But all I ask is that at the moment you face the fear at its height, when it’s asking you to choose your response, stop and think for a minute. Is it fear of the thing, or fear of failing at the thing that scares you most? Never let garden variety fear block you from what might become your dearest achievement. You are greater than that.
