Fear is our regulator in time of danger or when venturing forth into the unknown. It makes us move more cautiously, sensing that a chance of injury or unwelcome surprise may be about to occur. There is a lack of confidence in our step, a natural trepidation attached to each decision we take and a mounting dread of what may befall us if we continue to travel further along the path we've chosen. 'Like one who, on a lonely road, Doth walk in fear and dread, And, having once turned round, walks on, And turns no more his head; For he knows a frightful fiend Doth close behind him tread.' But one way to confront almost any type of fear is to take out insurance specifically designed to cover whatever worst-case scenario may be anticipated. And here, the very best form of insurance is to create conditions where that 'frightful fiend' is just as scared of you as you are of it. Then, no one can can frighten anyone and so everyone gets to safely arrive at whatever destination lies ahead.
