Why we need ‘the fear’.
Remember the episode of Friends where Joey tells Rachael she will never leave her crappy waitressing job because she doesn’t have ‘the fear’? She’s stuck in a job she hates because she has nothing pushing her to find a new one. So she quits.
Now, I’m not recommending that anyone quits their job to get the fear and hope they get something better, but the fear can be our friend.
