No matter how challenging a fear may feel, the truth is that each of us has overcome so many of them already!
Fear reactions are automatic and limited to fight, flight or stupor. When a person is frightened, s/he has difficulty thinking, possibly their mind going blank altogether.
There is a better way of facing a challenge. It is possible to remain composed and clear-minded and be able to strategize.
Courage is an attitude of overcoming fear, and not freedom from all fear. The expectation of not experiencing any fear at all is unrealistic. However, seeking freedom from yet another fear is wise, practical, and often, surprisingly doable.
