Fear-Free: 11 Ways to Overcome Your Fear

By Carma Spence

The first thing you need to understand about fear is that everyone is afraid. Fear is a basic human emotion that has kept us alive for hundreds of thousands of years. Without a healthy sense of fear, our ancestors would have been eaten by saber-toothed tigers or T-rexes straight off the bat (even thought I know we didn’t live with T-rexes). Anyway, you get my point. Fear is what stops you from taking unnecessary risks and getting yourself into serious trouble.

But while fear has an important role in your life, fear can also keep you small. It can stop you from living a full life and following your dreams. But you can face your fears and overcome them. Fear is not in charge, you are! Here are eleven ways you can overcome your fears and live your best life.
