Key Points from Book: Feel the Fear and Do it Anyway

The basic of all fear is the saying “I can’t handle it”

If you knew you could handle anything that came your way, you would fear nothing

All you have to do to diminish yourfear is to develop more trust in your ability to handle whatever comes your wayThe fear will never go away as long as I continue to grow

The only way to get rid if the fear of doing something or to feel better about myself is to go out and do it

I’m not the only one feeling fear when I’m on unfamiliar territory, but so is everyone else

Pushing through fear is less frightening than lying with the underlying fear that comes from a feeling of helplessness

Everything wrong in your life is a learning experience, make the best of it

There’s no right or wrong decision, just a different one

Take responsibility of your life

Handle your own chatterbox in your mind, you should fight your negative thinking of possibilities that could happen when you take a decision

Pursue what you want in life, it’s not going to happen unless you make it happen

Be a polyanna, always have something to be glad about

We create our own reality

It is amazingly empowering to have the support of a strong, motivated and inspirational group of people

Believe that your mate wants what is best for you and that he or she will ultimately love the positive changes in you

You are not a failure if you don’t make it, you are a success because you try

Diversify your life so even if you lose one part of it, you still got the other part to build your life back

Action is the key to your success

Acknowledgement of pain is very important, denial is deadly

Saying yes means getting up and acting on your belief that you can create meaningful and purpose in whatever life hands you

The world is filled with people who have been handed the worst life has to offer, and they have come out winners

When we give from a place of love rather than from a place of expectation, more usually comes back to us than we could ever imagine
