Fear is thinking about, “What is going to happen to me?” It’s very focused on yourself.

Courage is thinking about what is going to happen to other people, “How can I help?”

When you are going through that fear, don’t look at yourself and say, “What is going to happen to me? How can I handle this? How can I make sure that I win, and the other person loses?” Instead, think of, “How can I make sure that I’m taking everybody along with me and that I’m helping other people?”
