How to Feel the Fear and Just “Do It Scared”

As far back as I can remember, fear has crippled me from living the life I want.  It has prevented me from making friends, expressing love, trusting people, and so much more.  I’ve tried countless times to do something that I am afraid of, but fear always stops me; however, if I want to be successful, then I need to acknowledge that, if I can’t beat the fear, I’ll have to just “do it scared.”

Fear And Anxiety

I rarely pay close attention to what my therapist Randy says (lol), but I know he would say that my fears stem from anxiety, and the only way to conquer my anxiety is to face the fear and do the very thing of which I’m afraid; however, to just “do it scared” isn’t easy.

If You Can’t Beat Fear, Then . . .

Do not let fear prevent you from being successful.  It takes effort to work toward any endeavor, but even more so when you are afraid.   Success rarely comes easily.  You will have to work hard and take risks to achieve your ambitions.  The work you are investing into your goals will not always be pretty, it will not always be convenient, and it will not always be comfortable, but if you have the courage to be strong and just “do it scared,” your achievements will be worth the fear.

Let’s get to know each other!

    1. Thank you for your comment. I do feel like I’ve come a long way, although I recognize there is still much work to do. I looked at your blog and WOW! It is incredible. I aspire to have a blog like yours. And the Indian weddings section is stunning. I could look and read it all day. I followed you on Twitter. I will definitely be looking at your blog more often. Hope to “speak” with you again. Take care.

  1. My biggest fear is probably not getting well again. A scary thing I’ve done was skydiving (but I was 20 and thought I was invincible). Bucket list I’m not sure, but something travel-related.

    1. Not getting well is also a concern of mine. I tell my therapist frequently, “This as good as it gets.” I’m afraid I won’t ever get better. Skydiving sounds incredible. I’ve always wanted to but was alway to scared, so I will take my own advice and “do it scared.” Snow skiing is on my bucket list. I’m trying to save money to go skiing in a couple of years. It will probably take me that long to save the money. Thank you for your comment. It’s always a pleasure to hear from you. 🙂
