Caution vs fear

Caution is a great concept. Only a fool will fear caution as they are lost with being engulfed in choas. But there is a big difference in caution and fear. Fear is possibily the trickiest emotion in the world. For some fear is a ally as it motivates and guides their thought process and often times saves them from themselves. On the other hand it traps some and allows them to trap themselves in a box mentally and emotionally. They rationalize and settle for the saftey of things and situations which are familiar other than make attempts at something new. Fear guided decision making is dangerous as you find yourself wasting the most precious resource ever time. The time lost while in this box can't be retrieved and the realization of this lost time usually leaves a more bitter taste than that of failure acoompanied by maxium effort. Caution on the other hand is more logical to me. The use of caution can lighten the blow of failure as you didn't allow yourself to get in too deep. Strategy and caution rank high in my book of things we need to know master and practice daily. A fearful man will never try to be great simply settle for what is safe. A cautious man will strategicly way all factors while attempting greatness with certain built in fail safes in the event something goes wrong. Try hard and smart or settle and suffer...
