Hey! Have you ever felt completely frightened to do something important, and to put yourself out there, even though you knew deep down that it could lead to much greater things for you?
Yeah, me too! Quite often actually.
Fear is something that holds practically everyone back at some point in their life. No one is exempt from it. Not even those who you think are the most confident people in the world, because even they have felt nervous about something.
All you have to do, is figure out how to handle that fear, and use it to your own advantage, as opposed to letting it beat you.
Thankfully, there is a way to do so. Feel the Fear and Do It Anyway is a guide that was first released in 1997, but has now been redone, refined, and re released as one of the books for this years QuickReads selection.
It involves an easy to follow, up to date guide, which allows for us to be equipped for situations that we would have probably avoided beforehand. For me, that was applying for Apprenticeships, which since reading this book, I have done so, and even absolutely aced the phone interview.
In your face, fear!
Also, to gain more insight, the author talks about her own previous experiences, as well as sharing stories of others she has known, including that of her own students. It’s even possible you may find a story that resonates with you on a personal level. Who knows?
I do have to say this though, my mom was right. She used to pester me to read this book, and now that I have, I know it to be one of the greatest and most important books I have ever read, although only 110 pages long. It really makes you feel as though you can beat whatever fears and worries are currently in your way and staring you down.
Seriously, anybody who needs to figure out how to reach that next step in life (and maybe wants to say IN YOUR FACE, FEAR), read this book. Your entire perspective on fear might just change.
