Healthy Fear

Healthy fear is better categorized as wise caution. This comes from experience and helps in understanding how timing and resources can help mitigate risks. Healthy fear isn’t a result of insecurity. It is a result of understanding limits. There is a huge difference between the two but many people do not see the distinction. A huge red flag for unhealthy fear is a defense of the statis quo. Change often unsettles people. A person with a healthy fear doesn’t hesitate for appearance sake or even for safety. They understand the team’s limits and therefore the best timing to take a necessary risk. Healthy fear is looking for a window of opportunity to optimize the reward for a risk. Unhealthy fear feigns wisdom in an attempt to always err on the side of caution and likely comfort.
