What fear simply does is place you inside a cage.

Fear, like all of the possible setbacks, is faced by everyone. Those who choose to face their fears head-on are the ones that used their tools and now they’re even more prepared to deal with other fears that come their way. It should be about your mind-set, your will and your desire to do what you intend to do.
You need to really ask yourself, what it is that you’re afraid of. If you know that you should’ve produced something and yet you’re still stalling then ask yourself why that is.
