Our life is very funny. We are surrounded by many people who are full of dreams. They might want to be the greatest person on Earth, be the man who breaks the Guinness book record, be the most famous and handsome guy, be a Hollywood actor, and other impossible dreams. Yes, it is only a dream. Then when they wake up everyday, we do not know that they feel like they are an ordinary person. Not more, not less. Who are they?

(Ali LIebegott, The Best American Non Required Reading, Shift #6, page 197) They said about feeling crazy. However, it similiar to our topic, afraid. They advice us, when we are afraid, then we have to be afraid. Not literally afraid, but we have to be afraid of being afraid because there is no use in being afraid. We could say “I’m possible” instead of “impossible” to ourself. It will increases our confidence and drive out our fear. Even though, it works slowly, we know that it’s better than using
