are you motivated by comfort or learning? being motivated by seeking comfort makes you do things to seek end results that create comfort for you. by getting to the top of routes any which way you can, by fear, you allow your ego to feel good that it accomplished something. if you are rather motivated by learning, then you face your fears directly, learn about them and expand your ability to arrive at those end goals. don't you feel great when you do the work and exert the effort to meet a challenge? that work is a process, not an end goal. end goals are only manifestations of the effort you exert. keep attention on the process, learning about your fears, and the end goals will take care of themselves.

just some thoughts to consider.

arno,
good advice. Follow up question...when you are ready to send a route/problem how do you distinguish between being motivated by learning and motivated by fear. Is there ever a balance? Also, you say to "face your fears directly, learn about them and expand your ability to arrive at those end goals." How do you know when this is accomplished instead of being driven by fear. In other words, if the end goal/result is the same, is just the feeling different?
