Day 369: Unmasking Fear: Your Secret Weapon for Increased Confidence and Courage

You gain strength, courage, and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face.

-Eleanor Roosevelt

Fear is a bogeyman in the life of every author.

Whatever your fear is, it’s not real, so unmask your fear so it reveals the growth opportunity hiding behind it.

Joshua 1:9 beautiful expresses the Biblical approach to fear.

“Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.”

Roosevelt’s quote and Joshua 1:9 translate into a potent strategy for embracing courage.
