Don’t be afraid of death. Be afraid of a life you didn’t live. Food 4 thought
There could be nothing worse than a near-life experience. It's something we must avoid at all costs - get out there and dare to be brilliant!
This is a great starting point to living the life you want, although I don't think fear will always lead you in the right place. Fear can show us what we value, but it can also get us into trouble.
With that said, I've had a near-death experience, and I can't say I fear it much anymore!
This reminds me of my all-time favouries quote, which I believe originally came from Mark Twain. To paraphrase:
'When you grow old, it is not the things you did in life which you most regret; it is the things you didn't do.'
It's so true in my case. If you do something in life and it goes wrong, well, at least you tried and learned from the experience. But if you don't do something exciting or adventurous out of fear or uncertainty, then you may always wonder what might have been, if only you had had the courage.
