It’s not easy to take action now when you are afraid, but if you find a way to do it, you can win!
Fear is most often defined as a belief that a thing is dangerous or likely to cause pain of some kind. Fear is not a pleasant thing. But it is a real thing. This means that when people tell you that you fear is not real or that you should ignore your fears, they are not giving you good advice. Fear is real. I have never met a person who was brave all the time. In fact, most people I meet have been afraid of things from time to time throughout life.

In fact, sometimes, the fact that I am scared helps my determination to take action now and get things done.
