Once, in a little village, children were always told, “whatever you do, don’t go near the top of the mountain … that is where the monster lives.”
For generations the children heeded this warning. But one day, some brave men decided they were going to go see the monster.
Halfway up, they heard a huge roar and half the men ran down screaming.
The monster continued to roar so loudly that all but ONE man ran back.
That man said, “I’m going to get the monster” and took a step forward. As he did, the monster shrank!!! He took another step and the monster shrank even more! Who are you, the man shouted!
In a tiny voice, the monster squeaked “My name is FEAR.”
Is there anything keeping you from reaching the top of the mountain that stands before you? If so, whatever it is, run towards it with courage and watch it shrink before you!
