Love and Fear

Yesterday I was cleaning up around the house and enjoying the latest Tim Ferris Show, What I learned in 2016, and right in the beginning was reminded of Oprah’s idea that there are only two emotions, Love and Fear.

We push back from this sort of idea. It’s too simple, we say. “I’m not afraid of anything”, we say. But as Tim Ferris says in his rapid-fire style:


“If there are only these two emotions, Love and Fear, then which am I feeling right now?”

– Tim Ferris

Are you focused on what draws you, or what repels you? Are you driven by meaning, or by anxiety? Are you building, or fighting?
