Normalise the idea of fear

We can create monsters of our fears in our heads.

  • We have to stop giving fear power. We do that by saying, "I'm afraid, but I'm going to do it anyway."
  • Saying your fears out loud or writing them down helps - you see how small the fear really is.
  • We can decide always to do the thing we feel compelled to do, even if we feel scared about it.

Fears can keep us safe throughout our lives. We lock our doors at night and check for ticks after a hike. But fears can also hold us back - especially at work. We may wonder which valuable ideas got left behind because we couldn't find the courage to speak up.

The emotion we feel when we see a fire is the same feeling we have when we need to have a difficult conversation - it keeps us safe.

When you have to do something difficult, ask yourself these questions to determine if you're impulsive or need to speak up.

Being an authentic person means having specific opinions and values, and people who have different values will not like what you say or do.
