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.”
