Fear only has the power you give it

I had waited and waited for the time to be right to do a web site.

“When I have more time, I’ll do it.”
“When I know what I want, I’ll do it.”
“When I have more articles, I’ll do it.”
“When basketball (volleyball, track) is over, I’ll do it.”
“When I have the money, I’ll do it.”

Truth of the matter is, I was just down right scared to do it. . . about as scared as when I decided to leave my secure job and start publishing an inspirational newsletter on my own.

I was scared I wouldn’t know how to do it.
I was scared no one would read it.
I was scared I’d lose money.
I was scared I’d fail; plain and simple, I was scared I’d fail.

Well, so what!

Will the world stop if no one goes to my web site? Will it be the first time I’ve lost money? Will it be such a horrible thing to ask for help?

It’s just a web site, I’m not curing cancer.

Just get up and do it, Judy Mae.

“Be bold and mighty forces will come to your aid,” Arthur Gordon wrote, and he’s right.

He continued, “In the past, whenever I had fallen short in almost any undertaking, it was seldom because I had tried and failed. It was because I had let fear of failure stop me from trying at all.”

What is the fear of failure stopping you from doing? Why are you afraid? Just get up and do it, and if you fail, I promise you, the world will not end.

It’s just a web site.
