Fear is real. If you want to build success, you must first conquer fear. The one thing that stops people from doing what they love is fear. You can conquer it. Don’t be afraid to live your life. With or without fear, you must cultivate the courage to move forward.

If you really want to put fear behind you, here is how:

Do not fear what you don’t know. It is okay to fear what you don’t know, but don’t ignore it. Explore it.

Do not fear mistakes. If you really want to change your life, if you want to succeed in your life, don’t be scared of mistakes.

Take action. Eleanor Roosevelt said, “Do one thing every day that scares you.”

Know who you are. If you don’t know who you are, how can you manage your fears? You are the only person who can do that for yourself. Don’t stand in your own way. To conquer your fears, you must face them.

Do not encourage fear. James Allen said, “Doubt and fear are the great enemies of knowledge, and he who encourage them, who does not slay them, thwarts himself at every step.” Instead of fear thoughts, try to always occupy your mind with positive, love thoughts. Only love can conquer fear. Love, not fear.

Use love to conquer your fear. In the words of Dorothy Day, “Love casts out fear, but we have to get over the fear in order to get close enough to love them.”

To do great things in life, we must have the courage to confront our fears. We all want to achieve great things, but we lack the courage to start.

You can’t succeed in life without a courageous heart. It is what you need to move from point A to point B. You need a courageous heart to chase your dreams. If you don’t have a courageous heart, fear will take charge of your dreams.

To face your fear, you must cultivate a courageous heart. Let us start with the following strategies:

Do not run away from facing the real problem. If you want to solve a problem, do not ignore it. Ignoring a problem is increasing it, not reducing it. Dan Rockwell says, “When you refuse to deal with the real problem, you’ll deal with recurring frustration.”

Do not tolerate anything that is against your values. As the saying goes, “Whatever you tolerate, you encourage.” If you don’t like something, don’t tolerate it. Let it go. Dr Phil says, “We tell people how to treat us.” If you don’t want to be treated badly, don’t encourage it. Don’t tolerate it. Reject it!

Don’t be scared to think and dream big dreams. According to Donald J. Trump, “I like thinking big. If you’re going to be thinking anything, you might as well think big.” It does not cost a lot to think big. Why not do it. Oscar Hammerstein said, “If you don’t have a dream, how are you going to make a dream come true.” You can make a dream come if you have one. If you don’t have , you can’t win.

Don’t try to keep what you cannot keep. Trying to keep what you cannot keep is like breathing in oxygen and not letting out carbon dioxide. You are not going to enjoy it. The same is true for other things. If you can’t keep something, give it away. According to Jim Elliot, “He is no fool who gives what he cannot keep to gain that which he cannot lose.” If you cannot let go of what you cannot keep, you cannot gain what you cannot lose. Think about it.
