Reject Fear, Reject the "fight or flight" reflex

I like this idea. As Seth Godin's blog spoke about the lizard brain:
"The lizard is a physical part of your brain, the pre-historic lump near the brain stem that is responsible for fear and rage and reproductive drive. Why did the chicken cross the road? Because her lizard brain told her to.

Want to know why so many companies can't keep up with Apple? It's because they compromise, have meetings, work to fit in, fear the critics and generally work to appease the lizard. Meetings are just one symptom of an organization run by the lizard brain. Late launches, middle of the road products and the rationalization that goes with them are others."

I came to think a long time ago that true freedom only came when we let go of our fears. Easier said than done, of course.

Reject fear.
