But as Susan Jeffers points out in her amazing book 'Feel the fear and do it anyway.' Everyone feels the fear but still gets out there, so one must conclude that it is not the fear itself which is the problem. But the way we hold it.
Abe recommends working it into a better place in your mind then going out into the world. Not charging blindly through your negative emotions. But instead, acknowledging them and working it into a better feeling space.
Fear can be paralysing so just do your best to get out there and live life. Ultimately, it's usually your negative perception of the situation and what bad feelings it could bring about that holds you back. And usually it's not that bad!
Some great fear thoughts by some famous people (I can't remember who said what lol).
'Ships in harbour are safe, but that's not they're built for.' They are built for sailing the world!
'The best way out is through'
'The only thing to fear is fear itself'
'Everyone feels fear. Just suck it up and get out there! (With some self love).' That was me!
All is well!!!
Lots of love, Nick Xxx
