IDENTIFY YOUR FEARS
You can’t fight an enemy you can’t identify. To develop your courage, find out what is hindering it; only then can you master fear.

UNDERSTAND YOUR FEARS
Sometimes, the dangers and threats that we face are smaller than we imagine them to be. Understanding your fears is one of the greatest steps you can take toward conquering them.

TALK ABOUT YOUR FEARS
Confiding in someone you trust can remove the fog from your eyes, and you can receive good counsel on how to proceed. Surround yourself with brave people; their inspiration can help turn your obstacles into advantages.

READ BOOKS
When facing a problem, always remind yourself that someone else has wrestled with a similar predicament. Sometimes, we fear what we don’t understand, and all we need is knowledge to overcome it.

RECITE AFFIRMATIONS
Quotations are short, insightful, and full of inspiration.

THINK POSITIVELY
When afraid, diligently manage your thoughts. Think about the best that could happen, instead of the worst.

EXERCISE
Stack up the endorphins. Replace stress, fear, and anxiety with happy hormones. Working out also boosts you psychologically

PRAY
Whether you are religious or not, prayer has been proven to have healing effects. Releasing your fears to a higher power is one of the simplest proven ways of lightening your burdens.

MENTORSHIP
Professional athletes, celebrities, entertainers, and business people will be the first to tell you that having a mentor or trainer goes a long way toward helping you accomplish your goals.

FACE YOUR FEARS
The majority of fear’s strength comes from making itself out to look larger than it is. When you face your fears, you take away their power; they become weaker, and you become stronger.
