Self-improvement or personal growth isn’t like an Instagram reel.

We don’t wake up one day and start an online business that generates $10k a month after 30 days.

We also don’t wake up and start running daily for a year straight and then have big muscles with and six pack abs.

Those things might happen to some people, but for most of us mere mortals with a 100 different types of responsibilities, we need to take it step by step.

Sure, major life changes happen, but not on a daily basis.

The quality of our lives depends on the small decisions we make every day. Sometimes, we don’t even notice making those decisions because we do them without thinking:

  • Get up early or stay 5 more minutes in bed?
  • Scroll “a bit” on social media or start your work?
  • Eat a cup of yogurt or open a bag of chips?

These small things matter. And if you’ve been reading about productivity, you would find various advice on how to execute consistently.

But there’s another small thing that makes people succeed. And that’s the ability to overcome two “small” fears on a daily basis.
