Bertrand Arthur William Russell, 3rd Earl Russell, OM FRS (18 May 1872 – 2 February 1970) was a British philosopher, logician, mathematician, historian, writer, essayist, social critic, political activist, and Nobel laureate. At various points in his life, Russell considered himself a liberal, a socialist and a pacifist, although he also confessed that his skeptical nature had led him to feel that he had “never been any of these things, in any profound sense.” Russell was born in Monmouthshire into one of the most prominent aristocratic families in the United Kingdom.
“Fear is the main source of superstition, and one of the main sources of cruelty. To conquer fear is the beginning of wisdom.”
If so, you are not alone!
Those who succeed with their goals don’t allow negativity to rule their lives or actions.
So what is the worst that can happen? Your idea bombs? Or maybe it is wildly successful! Either way, fear is a useless negative emotion that only holds us back!
Next time you feel fearful, remember Russell’s words: Conquering your fear is the beginning of wisdom!
I would like to share this final quote from Russell on cooperation:
“The only thing that will redeem mankind is cooperation.”
