“Everything you want is on the other side of fear.” - Jack Canfield

It's no secret, that two of the biggest reasons why were are denied success in life are because of either doubt or fear. When we look at those two reasons though, we should be able to clearly see that both of these are our own responsibility. Neither are because of other people, or circumstances, or situations, or any other thing we try and palm off the responsibility and blame on, it's all ourselves. With our goals, success, happiness, and future, on the line, so many of us decline to proceed with opportunities and turn away from taking risks, all because of fear. We are fearful of failing, we are fearful of other people judging us for our decisions and actions, we are fearful of not being capable of achieving what we desire, we are fearful we don't have the required knowledge and experience to succeed, we are fearful of stepping out of our comfort zone, we are fearful of making mistakes, we are fearful of embarrassing ourselves, we are fearful of change, and one of the greatest fears within people is the fear of losing financially. The issue is that success, happiness, prosperity, and goal achievement, can only be achieved if we are willing to take risks, and overcome our fears. Nothing can be achieved if we remain stuck in our comfort zone, sitting there in hope that success will eventuate by itself. We too often base our decisions on emotion, rather than logic, and as a result, we quite often turn our backs on the very opportunity that was there for the taking, that would have led us to success. No opportunities or actions of risk come without the need to follow through with hard work, patience, and action, we still need to apply ourselves. The truth be told, that many risks we do take will end up being unsuccessful, but that's where it becomes about making changes, continually trialing different actions, persevering, and even taking more risks, until we achieve the desired result. It's never failure unless we accept it as that. Every unsuccessful action is nothing more than a learning opportunity, so there sure is nothing to be afraid of. Here are 10 quotes to help us draw on our courage, focus our mindset on what we want to achieve, and overcome our fears, so we can go on to achieve success.

1.- “Everything you want is on the other side of fear.”

- Jack Canfield

2.- "You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You are able to say to yourself, 'I have lived through this horror. I can take the next thing that comes along.' You must do the thing you think you cannot do."

- Eleanor Roosevelt

3.- “Too many people are thinking of security instead of opportunity. They seem to be more afraid of life than death.”

- James F. Byrnes

4.- “Face your fears as if your life depends on it, because living in fear keeps you from living.”

- Jeanette Coron

5.- “Fear lies to us. It keeps us locked behind closed doors. Whether the doors are wooden ones or our hearts, fear locks us in and holds us captive.”

- Mandi Hart

6.- "Inaction breeds doubt and fear. Action breeds confidence and courage. If you want to conquer fear, do not sit home and think about it. Go out and get busy."
