My motto is: feel the fear and do it anyway. ~Tamara Mellon
It’s ok to feel fear. I have and I will continue to. But I can’t let that hold me back.
Had I not faced off with the fear of failure, I never would have become a published author.
Or climbed a mountain.
Or cycled to Mexico.
Or ran a 50-mile trail run.
I could go on, but you get the picture. No matter what adventure I jump into, fears trickle in. I let myself acknowledge that fear, because if I don’t it could take me by surprise. But I get through it with the help of my coach, my agent, my friends & my family.
Don’t ignore it, though, because in some of my adventures there could be legit trouble if I’m not prepared. Like falling on the trail and getting hurt or running out of food/water or suffering heat stroke.
So yeah. Feel the fear, but then beat it back & show it who’s boss.
Stay strong, my friends.
