Time to share some ‘face the fear quotes’! We recently procrastinated on a situation at home because it was easier to — or so it seemed. When we finally tackled the issue that premise proved wrong. Then, as mostly always, the lesson was that when you face your fear, it disappears.
Bookmark these fear quotes for when you need a reminder that you can overcome. When we ditch the drama and face the fear, it will disappear. Or at the very least, become manageable.
Whether you’re a business owner or a creative hobbyist, to face your fears will always serve you in any endeavor and human situation. And certainly, in these trying and uncertain times, we could all use a little courage reinforcement.
You may not get rid of fear altogether, but it absolutely will diminish over time and the more you do it the more you can do it. To face your fears rather than avoid them will serve you most, for to avoid facing the fear leaves it to simmer in the background. Simmering fears add stress and inflammation that can boil to the surface and burn us, and often when we encounter stressful situations, which is when we most need stoic courage rather than stressed reactivity.
All who’ve achieved massive success have had to push through fears and failures again and again. Success comes from identifying our core values and living in accordance with them, keeping our commitment to ourselves, and facing our fears.
When we focus on daily actions in alignment with our purpose and values, and incorporate creativity, positivity and gratitude, fear has no room to take up residence.

VICTORY Over Fear
An all time favorite quote on fear, courage and the critics, by Theodore Roosevelt and popularized by Brené Brown.
It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better.
The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes up short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.
~Theodore Roosevelt, historian, naturalist, 26th US President, 1858-1919
