Courageous Writing: Confront Your Fear Head-On

Inaction breeds doubt and fear. Action breeds confidence and courage. If you want to conquer fear, do not sit home and think about it. Go out and get busy.

Dale Carnegie

The hardest part of anything is “the beginning.”

Human nature is to fear the unknown, and in the beginning it can be MASSIVE.

Self-doubt is biggest here too, because we feel we’re not ready yet.

The reality is we will never be ready, but it’s a great excuse to do nothing.

  • “I’ll write when I know what to write.”
  • “I’ll write after I research more.”
  • “I’ll write when I feel inspired.”

Lies, every one.

Courage is the antidote to fear.

Courage is the pathway to confidence.

Don’t give them the chance.
