What does it take to become fearless?

Is fear stopping you from taking action? I must confess that I am paralyzed by fear, and it’s stopping me from taking my next leap of faith–publishing my book. Here are a collection of quotes that hopefully will inspire us both to take that next step, no matter how scary it may look:fearless 1

“A fear-driven life is a life not fully lived.”

“To live exuberantly, we must be prepared to illuminate the dark spots in ourselves.”

“Fearlessness is like a muscle. The more you exercise it, the more natural it becomes to not let your fears run you.”
