Feel the Fear

Feel the Fear and Do It Anyway: How to Turn Your Fear & Indecision into Confidence & Action

I've heard of this book before, but never really been tempted to have look.
I help out in the local Oxfam shop & there it was one day. Some how it felt right to get it.

I worked in local government for quite some time, & it was a scary step to give up my job to start my shiatsu study. I managed to get a temping job easily, but never having done that before, I didn't know how it would work out.
I'm not so good at taking risks. I like to think things through. The Feel the Fear book mentions taking one risk a day. You plan it the night before, & then it can be any thing that challenges you.
Mine the other day was asking a person at work if they fancied going for a coffee one day. I've never been one for socialising with work colleagues previously, & feel I've lost contact with many people over the years. She said yes!
Another day was spending quite a bit of money on myself, which I've never been good with. Most of it was cycling kit I needed, & it was a positive experience.
