Fear into confidence

Listen to your fears, but don’t let them get the best of you. Learn from your fears, allow them to prepare and inspire you, then move confidently beyond them.

The longer you hold on to fear, the more power you give to whatever you fear. Face your fears quickly by doing the difficult and uncomfortable work to successfully get through what you fear.

Look back on your past experience and you’ll recall that almost nothing was ever as bad as you feared it would be. You’ve pushed yourself beyond fear many times, and you can do it many more.

On this day, you’re more skilled, experienced and knowledgeable than you’ve ever been. You can transform fear into confidence, and then into achievement.

What you fear may indeed be quite real and serious. Yet your power to do something about it, to take the appropriate steps, is just as real and even more persistent.

Take a deep, calm breath, and feel that power. Then move confidently forward and do what you know you can do.

— Ralph Marston
