There is a prison that has an inmate population of young generation in billions. It is a prison without walls, without boundaries, without barbed wires, without guards and without any physical barriers. But it is the most effective prison in the whole world. Few people escape it, but those who find a way get real and lasting freedom.

That prison is in our mind. It is a prison that holds back our initiatives, our talent, our ability to express ourselves and most of all it holds back the fulfillment of our potential as human beings.

That prison is “FEAR”.

Our lives today are controlled by fear more than we know. It controls the choices we make, our actions, our habits, our desires and even our destinies. Fear has become one of the greatest threats to humanities in today’s time.

Recent events in the world have shown how fear can drive even those people that are powerful to behave desperately and inhumanely. But the effects of fear on our personal lives is more damaging that any terrorist can ever hope to achieve.

Fear of life…? Yes, so many people are thinking of security instead of opportunity. They seem to be more afraid of life than death. They forget to live while living their life.


There are many of us having brilliant business ideas in mind. What holds us back is fear. You think about all the statistics of how many businesses fail every year, or what your friends and family will think of you if you quit your job to pursue your dreams. The fear of not being able to pay your bills, fear of getting fired and the fear of not having a job again, holds you back.

The fear of taking risk is one that very few people are able to overcome. Risk is the potential harm that may arise from some present process or some future events.  In every area of life risk taking is a necessary thing. If you are in a race, you have to take risk that you may be loose miserably or get hurt badly. Basically if you want to live your life to its fullest you have to take risk of failures. It can paralyze you if you do not deal with it. It can absolutely stop you from living a life that you desire for.

So recognize it and conquer it.

You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop looking feared by face. You must do the things which you think you cannot do.

Trying to fight with fear is like trying to fight with dark. The way you get rid of darkness is to bring light. Similarly, the way to get rid of fear is to conquer it. Do things you always fear to do and keep doing it, is a quickest and surest way ever discovered to conquer fear.

Use your life wisely. There is only one thing you should fear and that is God. That should not be the fear of failure or terror, but fear of reverence. God has not given us the spirit of fear, but given us power, love and a sound mind.
