I actually sometimes do make choices out of fear…I think everybody knows these moments when you are about to make a choice and you feel you start doubting, suspending or ignoring.
It is challenging to pull yourself out of your comfort zone. This takes balls, it is not easy and it costs energy.. but the feeling afterwards is so damn rewarding not only because you made a conscious choice, you are learning!
I agree this costs energy AND it builds energy.
Playing bigger is a greater energy exchange.
