The Compounding Effect of Doing What Scares You
Doing what scares you compounds over time.
It compounds over time because facing your fear builds courage. When you build courage, you can use that to face bigger fears. Keep doing this and you’ll soon be doing things you never imagined you can do.
It compounds over time because doing what scares you is hard. Not many people will do what scares them. Thus, doing what scares you is one way of differentiating yourself from the crowd.
Something I learned from doing what scares me is that fear is simply an emotion. One that’s not inherently good or bad. But it’s up to us how we want to perceive it.
