Fear is always a factor. Why does this word continue to pop up in our lives? Don't have the answer? When it comes to writing your first book, it will be a thing you'll have to deal with until you face it head-on. The question is, "Where does fear come from?" Fearing the unknown can trigger the emotion. Whenever I feel fear, it tends to start in my stomach. It moves to my mind to create doubt. Next, I start second-guessing myself. At this point, I see fear as the catalyst to push me into a more determined mindset because self-doubt has no place in my mind space.
If I can identify what triggers my fear, I can choose to face it and stop it. You can stop it because you own the trigger. Here are 6 steps to remove fear and release your finger off the trigger.
Take a deep breath.
Decide what you want.
Have a plan and process.
Face the fear and write your book. Or get someone who has done it to help you do it!
Maintain a positive attitude and mindset.
Allow the experience of writing and publishing your book to be your weapon to beat the fear.
Now ask yourself again, "What the hell am I afraid of?"
