How to Combat Fear
1. Look your Fear in the eye and say, "You don't control me. You don't own me."
2. Tell all your friends and family about your Fear and they will simply laugh and mock Fear until it feels one inch tall. The more specific you are the more your Fear will be exposed and weakened.
3. Next, tell Fear, "Goodbye, good-for-nothing. I'm going to do all the things you've been trying to convince me not to do. I have a life to live now."
4. Live it.
