Leonard and Penny admit their fear of marriage to each other in an episode of The Big Bang Theory.

Leonard says:

Marriage is scary. You’re scared, I’m scared. But it doesn’t make me not want to do it. It just makes me want to hold your hand and do it with you.”

Too many of us are not living our dreams because we are busy living our fears.

It is natural to feel scared whenever one ventures into unfamiliar territory.

I get to know and work with talented entrepreneurs, but they always acknowledge to me that they are scared when it’s time to take their business to the next level.

I think it’s okay to be scared, I think it’s normal. I often get nervous before doing something new, but I’ve learned that it’s best to push through the fear and remind yourself to “do it with fear by your side.”

Don’t fight your fear; just admit you’re scared and do it anyway.

You’ve worked so hard to get your business to be where it is now, and you know it’s time to grow, but you’re scared of taking it to the next step.

It’s fine, feel the fear and go ahead and do it anyway.

Sometimes the fear won’t go away, so you will just have to do it afraid.

As Leonard advises: “do it with someone” [mentor, a partner, a coach etc]

Do it afraid.
