    Just thought this might be very timely ...

    I have to share this, I thought it was good.
    Reminds me of that great book "Feel the fear and do it anyway"


    Fear is a response to possible danger. The key is to reduce the potential loss to a level that doesn’t matter. This shuts off fear’s fuel supply — it can never get going.

    There’s an old German saying: Fear makes the wolf bigger than he is. And it’s true. Fear lets the imagination run wild. It will give you an excuse to hide.

    But it doesn’t have to be this way. If you know the risk — and it actually isn’t that bad — you’ll quickly cut the wolf down to size.

    False
    Expectations
    Appearing
    Real

    If you know intuitively it's false then who is making it appear real?

    Minimising risk is wise whether or not you're scared.

    Another way is just go do it despite how you feel. If someone can wake up in the morning despite not feeling like going to work, someone can take action despite feeling fearful.

    Yep, this can also be the wisest things to do :rolleyes:
