If there’s one thing that keeps most people from living the life they truly desire, it’s fear.

We all have reservations and fears when we step out on new ground and take on new challenges.  We fear rejection, failure, and occasionally even success!  We fear loss of image, being alone, public speaking, making a mistake…the list goes on and on.  Fear can be paralyzing and can stop you in your tracks.  It erodes confidence and is the enemy of progress.

Funny thing is, the only way to overcome the fear is to take action.  Delay will only increase the fear.  Fear grows stronger every time you avoid it.  Dale Carnegie said, “Do the thing you fear and keep doing it…that is the quickest and surest way to conquer fear.”
