DO THE THING YOU FEAR

prevented you from making further attempts, you might never have learned to dive; your fears might have become insurmountable. If, however, you persisted, and continued to make awkward and painful dives, you finally went in smoothly and came up feeling pleased. You were on the way to becoming an expert.
This is the basic psychology of overcoming fear and gaining confidence in every phase of life, and there is no escape from this process. Again and again we must plunge into the stream of life, adding one conquest to another, overcoming first this fear and then that. As Emerson said, do the thing you fear and the death of fear is certain. Actually our fears are the forces that make us, when dealt with by decisive action, or that break us if dealt with by indecision, procrastination and ratiocination.
A young man not long ago asked me to suggest some difficult things for him to do. "Your book recommends," he said, "such activities as dancing, basketball or some competitive sport, bridge, parties and games. It says a person should do such things even though he dislikes them. I not only disliked but was afraid to do these things. However, I made up my mind to try them. For a while I was miserable. But before long I lost my fears and actually began to like these new activities. In fact, I am enjoying my new life so much that I am in danger of getting soft. I wish you would tell me some things to do which I would really find difficult."
This young man had learned the lesson of using his fears as a means to conquest and livelier enjoyment. He was headed for a fuller and more effective life, both socially and intellectually.
The first step in overcoming fear is sometimes a very elementary process. I remember a certain young man so overwhelmed with various fears that he could scarcely talk audibly. He worked in a large bank and knew a dozen men in his department, but as he went to his desk in the morning he greeted no one. We suggested that he begin by saying a hearty "Good morning, Frank! Hello, Keating! Good morning, Mr. Eaton," to the men as he passed.
