Fear and Desire are Like Different Magnetic Forces

There is a lot of talk about positive and negative and in the process we are unknowingly being driven towards avoiding anything negative. Fear is avoided in my opinion for this reason.
Fear and desire
are the same perceptive feelings which motivate but only the direction is different
. Pull and push are the brute mechanical force agents which in my opinion are not motivators. Force, the stronger negative source of fear, may be reason why we may not accept fear.
Desire and fear are like sugar and salt. Both add taste to food and thus are motivators
. In extreme forms both are bad but in right quantities they are definitely motivators.
