Fear. President Frankly Roosevelt said, “The only thing we have to fear is fear itself.” A very profound statement.
Today, I met a young woman who was also battling breast cancer and only having a small percent of surviving; 22 percent. That is low. Unfortunately, it was caught late in the game and spread. Despite having a grim diagnosis, she still maintained a positive contagious attitude. She has two children and a loving family. But I noticed that her attitude was one of No Fear.
No Fear, the motto of the 27th Infantry Regiment. I was assigned to them at one point in my military career and they received this motto due to their expeditionary force into Russia during their revolution. And that motto continued on when I was with them in the 1990s and I am sure it is still there to this day. No Fear. Once, we were assigned as the opposing force and we held off a much larger force. Why? Because we had No Fear, we planned and executed a battle plan and caught them off guard.
No Fear. Despite all my pain, my issues and troubles, I have that same attitude of No Fear. I have developed a plan of action and I will execute. Because in the end, I have nothing to fear.
