Stay afraid but do it anyway. What’s important is the action. You don’t have to wait to be confident. Just do it and eventually the confidence will follow.

When events present themselves in your life, try to see them for what they are. Yes, problems may arise, however do not make them any bigger than they really are, for this makes them ample times harder to overcome. So take a breath, truthfully evaluate what it is you’re faced with, and move forward with courage.
Problems do not overcome you, for you are stronger than each and every one of them.
