Fear at the starting line

I see so many people standing at the starting line (figuratively speaking), too overcome with fear of what the race might be like to cross it. They plug their ears and hum loudly so they won't hear the starting gun.

Often, they make the assumption that they're the only ones feeling that way. Nothing could be farther from the truth. We all feel it.
