Forget it. You are never going to live a fear-free life. It’s a part of our existence. All of us get scared sometimes; the fear that we aren’t good enough; the fear that our ideas aren’t great enough; the fear that the people we want to ask for a favour, a relationship or seed capital are going to say no. But hear me, do it anyway. Do it afraid. Real growth happens when you face your fears; when you refuse to let fear imprison you from having the life of your dreams. Ask for help. Ask for that beautiful lady’s hand. Ask for the money you need. Ask! Refuse to let fear keep you in a box. Face your fear.   Follow Nehi on Twitter @NehiWrites
