Look Fear in the Eye and Get to Work

Only when we are no longer afraid do we begin to live.
Dorothy Thompson

You gain strength, courage, and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You must do the thing which you think you cannot do.

Eleanor Roosevelt

Be not afraid of life. Believe that life is worth living, and your belief will help create the fact.

Has anyone told you lately that you’re good enough, smart enough, clever enough?  
If not, I will.  
You have the right combination of genetic codes to do whatever it is you want to do.  You are smart, capable, talented and filled with potential.  
Don’t let anyone tell you otherwise.  Throw out those negative thoughts that slow you down.  No need to have that in your way.
Instead, show yourself what you are capable of.  Prove to yourself that you can.  
Will you let the fear in and dominate your whole existence or will you totally kick it to the curb?  Are you going to follow your dream?  Or will you always wonder?
You decide.

Now get to work.

Consider yourself warned: I write books about rebels. I'm also a postergirlz for readergirlz, a literary advisory group for teens. Who knew going back to the teenage years would be so rewarding?
