I’d stand at the cash register or sit at the desk of whichever job I was working and read the blogs of people I thought had “made it” based on my internalized ideal lifestyle list. I wanted what they had but the truth was, there was a wall of fear holding me back from that life. I just hadn’t quite figured that part out yet.
I always enjoy learning how people — especially people I admire — overcome their fear of failure. One of my favorite bloggers, Shauna Haider of Nubby Twiglet, does just that in her post titled, Fight the Fear.
