Are you really afraid to do something? Good. That tells you a couple things…
First, that the thing you’re afraid of is worth doing. And the greater your fear is of something, the more important it is for you to do it.
Because that fear is really your self-sabotage mechanism kicking in to thwart you. That fear is the worthiness memes you’ve adopted, subconsciously telling you that you’re not good enough, or don't deserve it enough.
What you think is fear of failure is much more likely to be subconscious fear of success.
Don’t fear fear. Fear the absence of fear.
