Interview FearThere are a lot of things that can get in the way of the road to success, but none is bigger than fear. Fear limits people’s ability to do anything about their situation. It gets in the way of any chance of progress. When you overcome that fear, however, it will empower you to achieve your dreams.

Accept it and Use It

The problem most people have with fear is denial. They don’t want to acknowledge the existence of their fear, and will do everything they can to ignore it. Yet once you muster enough courage to accept that fear is getting in your way, you can then take control of that fear.

Your fear comes from an awareness of something you lack. When you use that awareness, you can prepare yourself to be in a position of success.

Ask for Help

It’s easy to be overwhelmed with the task of overcoming your fear. Not everyone can overcome challenges on their own. It’s okay to ask for the help of others as you battle your fear. It is much easier to do something when you have a support system.


Any major task done without a plan is a recipe for disaster. The challenge of overcoming fear is a big one. You need to establish a plan for how you will succeed.

Take Baby Steps

After establishing a plan, keep in mind that nothing is perfect. You can’t rush yourself into thinking that everything will go smoothly. There will be bumps along the way, but don’t let those bumps stop you. Take it one step at a time, and don’t give up. Always know that one day you will overcome your fear.
