You might want to bookmark this Boise State video if you have a game this upcoming season where you're a big underdog, or if your roster is full of inexperienced players.
While the obvious intention was to promote their spring game, the narration throughout the clip is much more profound. In a nutshell it explains that fear is not real, but rather a choice that we make.

"That is near insanity."
"Do not misunderstand me. Danger is very real, but fear is a choice. We are all telling ourselves a story."
"Fear is a choice."
