I found another great quote; I do not know the origins of the quote but it is good:
“Fear is a habit; so is self-pity, defeat, anxiety, despair, hopelessness and resignation. You can eliminate all of these negative habits with two simple resolves: I can!! I will!!”
One thing I have learned is: Never give up! Things can be hard to do and sometimes they seem hopeless. Sometimes the whole world seems to think that what you are doing is a bad idea. But very often it is because they fear doing what you are doing. People want security and that is why they do what they always do. They stick to habits they know will work. But if you want to fulfil your dreams you have to get out of your comfort zone and challenge your fears.
I agree with the quote above. Fear is a bad habit. I know that fear is there to protect us but you really have to do some fearful things to get on in life or you risk getting more and more fear. If you focus on fear you will get fear. My advice is to do what you do not like to do because the reward will be ten times worth it.
I do not like to jump into a cold lake with thin ice floes, but I do it anyway because the feeling I get afterward is sensational. I feel like a completely new person full of energy and the blood is rushing and the adrenaline makes me feel high.
I want to get the reward; I want the great feeling I get afterwards. If you want something you can defeat the fear of doing by saying I will do it! I can do it!
I always chant a mantra inside myself when I have to challenge my fears; I keep repeating I can, I will, I can, I will etc.
Try it and you will be very well rewarded.
