Forget Everything And Run OR Face Everything and Rise
Fear is not the enemy but an alley. Why do you fear? Fear is present because of doubt and lack of trust. Not believing in yourself sometimes, and fear is there to remind, to wake up, and shake you back into a place of trusting and believing.
In moments of fear...
Pause, take a very deep breath in, and tell your self-deprecating thoughts to shut the hell up! Fail, but fail forward. As matter of fact- fail forward often!
How do we stop ourselves from being fearful? The thing is, we don’t and we can’t. Why would we want fear to go away! Fear is a human experience. Fear does not have to govern you or prevent you from doing the things that scare you. Fear is not asking you to stop! Instead, as we begin to see fear as a cheerleader, a teacher that is offering you in those scary moments, some real nuggets of wisdom, fear challenges you to listen, to believe in your abilities, and to trust the fierce person you are! Courage is not the absence of fear but the triumph over it. Feel the fear and do it anyhow.
