Uncertainty and doubt figure in every decision

Uncertainty is a constant. Even those who are blessed with the mental ability to be able to see far cannot see that far ahead. This creates a bind because fear is always there. And fear can paralyze us. There is no defeating fear once and for all. It is always there. Without the willingness to move forward or the self-confidence to do what we know needs to be done it is only a matter of time before fear wins. Sun Tzu wrote on battles: “Victorious warriors win first and then go to war, while defeated warriors go to war first and then seek to win”. 

You cannot win the war against fear without first achieving victory over self-doubt.
