I think this is one of the greatest issues mankind is trying to mistify over. Fear doesn’t paralize. Fear just keeps you alive and let you grow stronger to move on.
Fear helps you to see what’s wrong faster, and possibly avoid it on time.
Fear helps your organism to produce adrenaline, thus improving performance when it is needed.

That should be the normality, the darwinian process of evolution where there’s supposed to be a constant (yet inesorable) improvement to make the better organisms move forward to enforce the species.

What can paralize is not fear itself, is the feeling right opposite to courage.

I have to disagree with fear not being able to paralyze you from my own experience.

Long story cut short. I owned a Minnie Market in the 80’s and was robbed by knife point. My speech was frozen and also my body. The only word I could say was Jesus and immediatly someone drove up and the robber ran out. I felt very paralyze.
