Overview

"Through every generation of the human race there has been a constant war, a war with fear. Those who have the courage to conquer it are made free and those who are conquered by it are made to suffer until they have the courage to defeat it, or death takes them." [Alexander the Great]

It is hard to think of an example of someone who put a harness on their fears and rode them right into victory more often than Alexander the Great. Especially if we're talking about existential fears, like those about dying. Back in the 4th century BC, Alexander built the biggest empire in the world at the time. The Macedonian empire was larger than the Roman empire at the height of its history and the only empire that had been bigger before was the Persian one (which he conquered).
