I have read a lot of self-help books over the years.  Most of them contain some grain of useful advice but that is often buried, hence easily missed, amongst cliches and hyperbole.  A few are really good and declare their basic message loud and clear.  Susan Jeffers’ best-seller falls into this latter category, with its title becoming a well-known phrase in popular culture: Feel the fear and do it anyway.  Today I took Jeffers’ advice.  Nothing bad happened.  Quite the contrary, in fact.  Even if things don’t quite come to fruition as I hope, then it won’t really matter.  It won’t be a disaster.  I feel proud of myself.  I feel brave, which is quite an unusual emotion to experience in everyday life.  Whatever the results, I felt the fear and did it anyway.  Thank you, Susan Jeffers.
