Remember this. You are in control of your fears. Your fears are not in control of you. If you’re ready to change the way you look at fear, you are in the right place. Keep on reading to learn more.
Facing a fear is something you need to commit to. Once you’ve committed to it, there is no turning back.
Keep in mind; you don’t have to completely overcome your fear today, this week, or even this year. All you have to do is put one foot in front of the other. Every small step is one step in the right direction.
Here’s an example. Let’s say you are afraid of dogs and are ready to overcome your fear.
Chances are, you wouldn’t want to walk into a pet store and start petting dogs today.
