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.
