What is fear?
Fear is "an unpleasant and often strong emotion caused by anticipation or awareness of danger."Fear is completely natural and helps people to recognize and respond to dangerous situations and threats.

Fear may be a threat to our success. Once you have fear on a certain thing, then you would think not to do it. Sometimes if opportunity comes and we think of the consequences, most of the opinions we have in our mind are negative and we then decide not to do it.

“I deserve to experience success on my own terms, all while having fun and living in abundance along the way!”

Say this affirmation out loud every morning when you’re getting ready to start your day.

Better yet, look yourself in the mirror and repeat it proudly, 10 times!

Sound cheesy? Yeah, maybe it is a bit cheesy. But, it works and besides, nobody has to know that you talk to yourself in the mirror!
