1. Write about it every single day: create the habit of actively doing something to confront a fear a little bit each day.
When I first started writing, my hands would shake everytime I came to the page because I didn't feel I had the right to my feelings or to tell my story
Solution: Everytime I would think about a great story or someone would say some crazy madness to me that didn't feel right, I wrote about it for 1 minute each day.
You'll write everyday because the things that scare you live in your dreams and your subconscious mind. And guess what, there's no editor there. It's your unfiltered truth in the moment. You can do anything for 1 minute. So try it and see what happens.
Sign up for the FREE 3 Day minicourse: How to Do the Thing that Scares You
You should sign up if you're:
- Stuck in your life and need a new way to sort out old problems so you can take back control of your life
- You've been talking about writing a whole lot more than actually writing which means you have a story to tell. The problem is you're not sure you're ready to write or even deserve to be heard
- You've started writing a memoir, solo show, play, screenplay but have yet to finish anything because "life" gets in the way (That's a fallacy by the way and I've got some concrete ways to help you through it.)
- You know how to journal, but not how to turn those pages into story. You want to understand story structure because your stories seem to fall flat or go nowhere fast. You need a new way to enter the writing process
- you've got some old wounds (AKA limiting beliefs) that you need to powerfully reframe and take back your life.
