I just love this John Wayne quote: “Courage is being scared to death and saddling up anyway!” Alright then. What if you DECIDE today that the fear of failure or whatever it is that holds you back from trying or doing something will no longer hold you back. Speaking from my experience the best thing you can do to overcome obstacles is confronting them. So step out of your comfort zone and get scared to death. Look fear in the eye. Only when we are no longer afraid do we begin to live. I know that starting a weight loss program can really be intimidating however, changes comes in those moments we step out of the comfort zone. Only then we grow and get stronger. Remember that often, the things that are scariest bring the greatest rewards. That being said, start with small steps so that you don’t get overwhelmed and give up. And if you have the courage to start, you have the courage to succeed. Just Do It!
