Overcome the Fear of Taking a Risk: Just Do It

Fake It Until You Make It

You have to fake it until you make it. It sounds cliché but it’s true. Use reverse psychology on yourself. You’re your own worst enemy. Tell yourself and others that you are confident about taking the risk and notice how your apprehension will dissolve.

Nurture the Positives, not the Fear

Print out some pictures of your risk and tape them on your ceiling so when you wake up with cold sweats, you can remind yourself that you are going to do what it is that you set out to do.

Write a pros list and forget the cons. Focus on the major pros. Cons can always be worked through. As long as you keep your dreams in mind, you will find a way to make it work.

No Excuses: Just Do It

Even worse, don’t make excuses about why you shouldn’t do it. Nowadays, we make excuses for everything. I’m too busy, I don’t have the money, or I don’t want to disappoint others. Make every excuse why you should do it.

Perpetual excuses will pour from your mouth, but remember fear shouldn’t be a chain holding you back. Don’t let fear paralyze you; close your eyes and imagine that everything will work out.

Don’t expect the unexpected and focus on what could go well. Just as life will have its highs and lows, taking a risk comes with excitement and terror. Fear is only natural when taking a risk. So go on! Jump out of that plane (with a parachute of course) into the world of your dreams.
