Do it Afraid

We sometimes wonder how people achieve great accomplishments. Extraordinary feats, and efforts. Or simply just tasks such as speaking in front of a room for a presentation or quiting a secure job and opening your own dream business. What sets this breed of people aside from the rest? Do they not feel the fear?
Fear of failing, embarrasing themselves, disappointing everyone, losing clout?

I believe they do feel fear, but they do it anyway. They: Do It Afraid. Make the decision today, that whatever is keeping you in fear, to walk thru it, afraid, but determined, to get to the other side. On the other side of that journey is greatness. xoxo Keep it glam.
