"You can't be brave if you're not afraid. There is no courage without fear!"

- Coach Tony Blauer


I was an all-around athlete. I competed in many sports, including skiing, wrestling, martial arts, etc. And I dreaded it. I dreaded all competitions.

I trained hard and competed, but I never enjoyed it. I hated the fear.

I kept thinking: If I’m so prepared, why am I so scared?

I tried hard but was always frustrated.

Sometimes I did well, but mostly I didn't. Regardless of the outcome, I never enjoyed myself. Fear was always on my mind.

I never understood why I felt nervous when I was competing in sports. No one was trying to attack me.

But it didn't stop there. Fear was a constant companion.

I’d get nervous about giving a presentation in school. As I got older, it was fear of a job interview, then fear about starting my own business. Then fear about marriage. The list goes on. Fear affected my enjoyment of life.

Have you experienced this? Most people have.
