Tackle your fear step by step

On the issue of developing courage, by Steve Pavlina in The Courage to Live Consciously.

Courage, doesn’t require that you take drastic action [when facing a paralyzing fear]. Courage is a learned mental skill that you must condition, just as weight training strengthens your muscles. You wouldn’t go into a gym for the first time and try to lift 300 pounds, so don’t think that to be courageous you must tackle your most paralyzing fear right away.

_MG_4646, by Kelsey E

Instead, figure out one small step towards that big frightening goal, and take it. Then do it again, and again.
