Execute a Google search about greatest fears and up near the top you will find Fear of Flying and Fear of Public Speaking. I am well aware that when people filling out these surveys list flying as a fear that they are referring to airplanes and the anxiety that comes with being confined to a heap of metal and bolts that propels you above the clouds from Los Angeles to New York in the proverbial blink of an eye. To me, fear of flying represents the inability or perhaps the unwillingness to try new things because the possibility of failure is too great to take. So often people, myself included, look up to the heavens to ask what their purpose is or their true gift. We never tap into our greatness because failing publicly can leave scars that are emotional.
