What is your fear telling you not to do?
When you hear the phrase, ‘public speaking’, do you break out into arm sweats? Does the idea of writing a book or build an app (or to fail at writing a book or building an app) curdle your blood?
Are the things you want to do — dreams you desire more than anything — always seem to take the back burner, the last thing you do, or something you procrastinate into oblivion?
Then what your fear is telling you not to do, is exactly what you need to be doing.
Don’t get me wrong, fear sucks. No one ever said it would be easy to start a band or build an audience on YouTube. But the ones who do and stick with it are the ones who are masters of their own fears. Fear is how we grow into our best selves.
The stronger the fear, the more you need to take action and do it.
Creative fears always feel impossible until you do them.
Creative failures always seem fatal before the fact.
Pushing past these creative barriers will amplify your confidence and creativity.
What fears do you need to tear down to build a better YOU?

“If you want to conquer fear, don’t sit home and think about it. Go out and get busy.” — Dale Carnegie
“Courage is resistance to fear, mastery of fear, not absence of fear.” — Mark Twain
