No one has went through life without fearful feelings. One who says he/she has is too afraid to admit it. Maybe you are afraid of roller coasters, flying, trying out for a team of some sort, falling in love, or admitting your true feelings. I want each reader to take a moment to think of some of your fears.
Now that you have thought of your fear ask yourself if you are letting it stop you from taking a chance. As adults how many of us let the “fear of striking out keep us out of the game?” Chances are at least one of your fears has stopped you from taking a chance in life. Is this fear truly worth it in the end?
If fear is holding you back try these three steps:
Take it easy: Break down your fear into small steps and start taking these steps.
Stick with it: Just because you get a strange feeling at first don’t give up. Never give up!
Make it a habit: Keep pushing through until you find yourself laughing at this fear.
We are only given one life to live; in the end we only regret the chances we didn’t take. Let today be the first step to conquering your fear. Get on an airplane, go to an amusement park, try out for that sports team, tell your best friend you love them, whatever the fear and go conquer it.
