“Don’t let fear or insecurity stop you from trying
new things. Believe in yourself. Do what you love.
And most importantly, be kind to others,
even if you don’t like them.”


– Stacy London

If there’s something you want to do but don’t, fear is likely the cause. Mediocrity is one of the primary symptoms of a life directed by fear. How much does fear drive your decisions? If you’re honest with yourself, fear is a significant part of your life.

Fear leads to less-than-optimal decisions and outcomes. The best solution isn’t utilized when choices that accommodate fears are made.

Fear and the response to fear become habits over time. You can create new habits to bypass the fear response. New habits can also be developed to grow your courage.

When we avoid fear, our self-esteem takes a hit, too. We know what to do, but we’re not quite “brave” enough to make it happen.

Fortunately, dealing with fear is a skill. Some people are naturally more fear resistant than others, just as some can naturally jump higher. But you can learn to feel less fear and act despite fear.

Fear and the response to fear become habits over time. You can create new habits to bypass the fear response. New habits can also be developed to grow your courage.
