Fears exist. You will have fear and you will have to face fear. Your decisions and actions when confronting fear are paramount to your success.
Acting in the face of fear will bolster your confidence like nothing else. Fear gets a bad rap. It is actually essential to your success, believe it or not. It is only when fear immobilizes you that it is harmful.
Use fear to your advantage. Be afraid, be very afraid. Use this fear as a driving force; an adrenaline rush; a challenge to embrace; and it will catapult your confidence to new levels.
Remember - Bravery isn’t the absence of fear, as many think. It is the ability to act in the face of fear.
