When Eleanor Roosevelt said, “Do something that scares you every day,” she wasn’t talking about watching a scary movie. She was talking about stepping outside your comfort zone. No, I didn’t ride this motorcycle but just sitting on it gave me a different perspective since motorcycles scare me.
My 14 yr old recently wrote a paper at school about how to face your fears. He used his passion for downhill mountain bike racing as an example of this. He told me that the only way to face your fear is to tackle it head-one. Smart boy!
Confidence is formed when you believe you will have a positive outcome, no matter the uncertainty present.
Research indicates that when you actually start doing the thing, you’re afraid of, your fear fades away. Better still, when you embrace the unknown and take that step forward, you open yourself up to new opportunities for happiness and fulfillment. After all, the best way to avoid regretting the things you didn’t do is to actually do them. What are you afraid of? Going to the Dr? Dentist?

With all the bad news we watch daily, it’s easy to have lots of different kinds of fear. #befearless #nofear #confidence #bloggerlife #lifestyleblogger #womensupportingwomen #femaleempowerment #dreamon #goodvibes ...
