Today is the 44th anniversary of the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
Considering Dr. King and his work, I am more convinced than ever that the vast majority of humanity’s negative tendencies and actions spring, at their root, from fear. Hate, envy, selfishness–it all comes from fear. Fear of the unknown, fear we don’t measure up, fear of not getting as much as the other guy gets.
And, most of all, fear of what we do not understand, and what we can never hope or learn to control.
You know what we can learn to control? OUR FEAR.
Tell yourself today that while you cannot control everything, you will not let fear control you.
