Equal parts encouragement and tough love, Do It Scared combines easy-to-implement tips with the motivation to help you stare down your fears and start making real changes that lead to big results.
What would you do if fear no longer stood in your way? What would happen if you were no longer afraid to dive in headfirst and go after your dreams instead of sitting on the sidelines of your own life?
We tell ourselves we're too busy to pursue our dreams, but what if the real reason we're putting off our goals is fear? It's the fear that we're not good, smart, talented, or capable enough. It's the fear that others might laugh at us or that we'll get hurt or be rejected. It's the fear that pursuing our true potential will simply be too hard. And most of all, it's the fear that we'll fail.
But having courage doesn't mean we're never afraid. True courage means taking action despite fear. True courage means doing it scared.
The question is--how? How do we face those fears and take that first step in the right direction? How do we overcome the obstacles that stand in our way and sometimes feel insurmountable?
