I mentioned in a previous post that our number one fear is being rejected. And as simple as it sounds to just "get over it" fear can be a very paralyzing thing. If you are afraid of people rejecting you or you're afraid of failing or looking stupid then it can keep you from even trying.
I don't think there is a such thing as fearlessness. I think everyone has some fear or trepidation everyday but what makes you badass is when you're afraid but you move forward anyway.
I mean seriously, what's the worst that can happen? Now of course I'm not referring to jumping out of a plane because well. . . . . But speaking in front of a crowd, singing a song, starting a business. . .what if you fail at those things? Is it the end of the world? No! It just means you can check that off your list and move on to your next great idea. Besides what if you're totally awesome at it? Don't deny the world your gift or idea because you're too afraid to try. Now if you jump out of an airplane, just be sure you have your parachute!
