At times we enter a state called "action paralysis". We are so much surrounded by fear that we stop acting. We withdraw, we run away. We can't face the naked truth. We feel cowardly. In this state there is so much fear, that we can't act anymore.
There is only 1 way out.
An ounce of action can crush a ton of fear.
As you start acting, you will destroy your fear. Each action of yours indicates you are now willing to take risks. You get braver. Fear gets crushed.
