The only thing we have to fear … is fear itself. - FDR
There’s a scene in Rocky III (not my favorite Rocky movie, more at the end.) where Rocky’s wife Adrian confronts him after he has lost his edge, his work ethic … the “eye of the tiger.” I think we’ve all been there, to some extent.
After Rocky attempts to run from the confrontation, explaining he doesn’t believe in himself anymore and doesn’t want to lose everything, Adrian says, “That’s not it!! Why don’t you tell me the truth!! … What’s the truth, dammit?”
