Fear Man Afraid Fear is an Instinct that all humans are born with. Fear helps us to  Respond to things that are either dangerous or unknown to us. But as soon as we identify what that thing was that scared us, and when we have determined that there is no longer a threat, we are no longer afraid, or we become less and less afraid over time. We need to identify dangers or Risks so that they we can react quickly and correctly in order to protect ourselves or others. As we get older, most fears is no longer needed. An adult will now rely on experience, knowledge, awareness and information to help them identify dangers so that they may react correctly and effectively enough in order to protect themselves. An adult should in place of fear, learn to use Awareness, Physical Conditioning, Training and Adrenaline to help quicken response time and to help increase energy levels when needed. Fear for an adult could be a distraction. This not to say that adults will stop having fears, this is just saying that adults should be quicker at analyzing situations so they are not paralyzed with fear, but instead, they are clear headed and ready for the challenge that they are faced with. Remember that fear is an emotion, and that fear is not an analyzer of information, so you have to use your brain.

Fear is a feeling induced by perceived danger or threat that occurs in certain types of organisms, which causes a change in metabolic and organ functions and ultimately a change in behavior, such as fleeing, hiding, or freezing from perceived traumatic events. Fear in human beings may occur in response to a specific stimulus occurring in the present, or in anticipation or expectation of a future threat perceived as a risk to body or life. The fear response arises from the perception of danger leading to confrontation with or escape from/avoiding the threat (also known as the fight-or-flight response), which in extreme cases of fear (horror and terror) can be a Freeze Response or Paralysis.

Psychological Resilience is defined as an individual's ability to successfully adapt to life tasks in the face of social disadvantage or highly adverse conditions. Adversity and stress can come in the shape of family or relationship problems, health problems, or workplace and financial worries, among others. Resilience is one's ability to bounce back from a negative experience with "competent functioning". Resilience is not a rare ability; in reality, it is found in the average individual and it can be learned and developed by virtually anyone. Resilience should be considered a process, rather than a trait to be had. It is a process of individuation through a structured system with gradual discovery of personal and unique abilities.

I also like to document important information so that I can use the experience and knowledge again to solve similar problems in the future.
