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.”

Are You Comfortable With Yourself?

It is okay to be by yourself. It is okay to live your own life in your way. If you are not comfortable living your life, if you are not comfortable being yourself, if you are not comfortable loving yourself, what are you doing to yourself?

“We live together, we act on, and react to, one another; but always and in all circumstances we are by ourselves.”– Aldous Huxley

Stop preparing to live your life. Your life is unique. You must be comfortable living it. Don’t apologize for living your life in your own way. Don’t! If you have been waiting for people to love you before you love yourself, you are not helping your life. You are hurting your life, your growth. Live your life. Stop waiting to live. You are not going to be here forever. You are going to die one day. Why not make your life worth living? Why not stop waiting for who is not waiting for you? Whether you are afraid to live your life or not, you are responsible for your own life. You are responsible for everything concerning you. Don’t expect too much from people. Don’t expect what you cannot give yourself from anyone. Do it for you.

If you want happiness from other people, give happiness to yourself. If you want love from other people, give love to yourself. Why? Because what you can’t do for yourself, no one can do it for you. It is your life.
