Point 1: This is good, but in order to face your fears, you need to see the reality of them. Don’t change a Chihuahua fear into a Rottweiler fear (yes, I like dogs), and don’t change a Rottweiler fear into a Hound of Hell fear. See the fear for what it really is. Chances are, that fear is a lot smaller than it seems.
Point 2 is spot on, but point 3 is just an extension. However, a good thing to do is to occasionally step back. I have the habit of finding a direction, laying tracks, and going down that direction like a supersonic train. But, sometimes it’s the wrong direction. Take pit stops, and make sure you are still going the right direction.
Points 4 and 5 are excellent. Never give up. The only way to fail is to not try. Look for my #Webishop on this.
