Face one of your fears. (Make it a big one!)
1) What is it you’re afraid of? It’s time to do some soul searching. Take some time to make a list of things that you’d like or need to do, but are afraid of. Public speaking? Skydiving? Calling that old friend you had a fight with and haven’t spoken to since? Asking for a raise? Going to an event and introducing yourself to people you don’t know? Going on the scariest roller coaster in the theme park? Spend between ten and thirty minutes really thinking about your fears and getting them on paper. (Seriously, at least 10 minutes! Set a timer if you think it will help.)
2) Choose a fear you’re ready to face. This is scary! But guess what? This is also a HUGE opportunity!!! Imagine yourself on the other side of your fear. How does it feel to have finally faced it? Choose a fear that you’ll feel proud or relieved to have accomplished.
3) Face your fear! Since everybody has a different fear, this step will look different for all of you. The gist is the same though- Do the thing you’re afraid to do.
4) Take a photo to document yourself facing your fear and post it on Instagram or Twitter with the tag #QuestScouts. Alternatively, you can also share your photo in our Facebook group. If facing this fear isn’t the sort of thing to photograph in the moment, take a photo after the fact to symbolize your accomplishment.
6) In the comments below, tell us about facing your fear! Since our fears are personal, you’re free to disclose as much or as little information as you want here. (Although we encourage you to share!)
