Leaning Into Fear

The fastest way to grow and improve yourself is to lean into your fears and do the things you fear most. If you’re afraid of being on stage, or committing to a big project, it’s really worth asking yourself why you’re so afraid of it.

If it’s the fear of failure holding you back, find out what’s the worst that can happen, and how likely it is to happen. Most of the time, our fears are overblown and it’s actually not as bad as we think.

For one thing, our society isn’t survival of the fittest anymore, it’s much closer to survival of the well-est. And another thing, all good things usually come at a price. For every project or endeavor you take, there will always be a small probability of failure, it’s the inherent risk in every pursuit, and it’s just the price you pay for doing something.
