Do What You Fear [AUDIO]
Chuck Norris, the actor and martial arts expert, once said: Running from your fears is more painful than facing them. I know that for a fact!
As a child, I stammered and stuttered while speaking in front of people. So, I avoided speaking before others as much as I could. Yet, I really wanted to become a radio announcer and a public speaker. But, how can a kid who avoids speaking in a school classroom make a living as a communicator later on in life.
Instead of running from my problems, I finally confronted them! I worked with a speech coach for several years and garnered enough confidence to enter a speech contest. I actually won 3rd place! I then decided to pursue my goal as a radio announcer. After months of calling the station owner, I was hired at the age of 15. I was now an on air radio announcer.
If fear has taken control of your life, my message is this: “Feel the fear and do it anyway!”
