Do It Scared is a motto I’ve been using in my own life for a long time now. Because although I can often look confident on the outside, the truth is that on the inside I feel like I am pretty much scared all the time!
But basically Do it Scared is based on the idea that courage doesn’t mean we are never afraid. Instead, courage is being scared but taking ACTION anyway, despite our fear. It is putting one foot in front of the other, even when we’re not quite sure where the path will lead us.
It is a motto that has helped me push past so many of my fears and to do things I never would have believed I was capable of.
But it hasn’t just changed MY life. You see, Do it Scared is a concept that is so important to me that it actually became one of the core values of my company, and as I began sharing the idea, both at Living Well Spending Less and Elite Blog Academy, I realized that it was an idea that didn’t just resonate with me or my team, but with people everywhere.
Every day we hear stories of people in our community who are pushing past their fear and taking action, doing things they never realized they were capable of, in all different areas of their lives. They’ve dared to start businesses, to travel the world, run marathons and triathalons, secured their dream jobs, and so much more. It is incredibly inspiring.
And ultimately, that’s what this podcast is all about—taking the steps that will help us move past our fear and create a life we love. Each week we’ll dive into focused topics that will give you a road map for where to go, and we’ll also talk to people who are conquering fear in their own lives to find out exactly how it is done. It’s going to be motivating and inspiring and encouraging, and most importantly, it will hopefully spur you to take action in your own life.
Sounds pretty good, right?
I truly believe that the Do It Scared message has the potential to be life changing for everyone who hears it, and I am inviting YOU to be a part of this movement with me! Starting April 30th, I hope you’ll join me every Monday here on the podcast for a new inspiring episode, and I also hope you’ll share your own Do It Scared stories on social media, using the hashtag #doitscaredmovement.

How exciting, Ruth! Sounds like you’re ready to hop people step out in fear. Looking forward to the 30th!
Hi Ruth and company, I hit the ITunes button to comment and it took me to something called Passive Income to subscribe. If you need to do something else to get to you, you might want to put that in as well for older people like myself that don’t know how to run iTunes. Otherwise, if that is not the case I am having an issue connecting to you. Looking forward to the other podcasts.
Thanks for letting us know, Deanna! We got it fixed!

Great kickoff! Your podcasts will be something to look forward to on Mondays. Thanks for doing this!
A topic that makes us reconsider doing the hard things because we are scared. I am looking forward to hearing more of your tips for accessing and moving past the butterflies in our stomachs to seeing the butterflies soar.
Heads up on the manifest. It says “I choose to clear about my priorities.” Probably should put a “be” in there. “I Choose to be clear about my priorities.”
Thanks Emma for catching that for us! 🙂

This is perfect for me! I am always scared.
A great book that helped me conquer my fear of leaving a bad marriage is called,
Feel the Fear and Do It Anyway by Susan Jeffers.
We all feel fear but some do it anyway and do it scared.
I need to find my “do it anyway” muscles. I think this will help!
