“YOU HAVE THE POWER to create amazing experiences in your life. YOU have the power to make your life AMAZING.” - Jen Whitens


Fear can be a powerful emotion, and often, it can hold us back from achieving our greatest goals and dreams. But what if instead of allowing fear to control us, we could use it to fuel us towards success? In this episode of Shed the Shame, Jenny shares her recent experience of overcoming her fears while traveling to Scotland, and how she used those challenges to inspire her and her husband to fully embrace the adventure ahead.

Acknowledge Your Fears

The first step in letting go of your fears and using them to inspire you is to acknowledge that they exist. It's easy to ignore our fears or brush them off as insignificant, but when we do so, we only allow them to grow and hold us back. Take some time to reflect on your fears and write them down. This can help you see them more clearly and make them feel more manageable.

Take Small Steps

Once you've identified your fears, it's easy to become overwhelmed by the prospect of overcoming them. That's where taking small steps comes in. Just like Jenny did on her trip to Scotland, break down your fears into small, manageable steps. This can help you build confidence and momentum as you work towards your goal. Remember, every small step you take is still a step forward.

Use Your Fear as Inspiration

Rather than seeing your fears as something to be avoided, try reframing them as opportunities for growth and inspiration. As Jenny discovered on her trip, facing her fears and pushing through them allowed her to fully embrace the adventure and magic of Scotland. Your fears can serve as a reminder of why you're pursuing your goals and can inspire you to keep pushing forward, even when things get tough.

Embrace the Journey

When we're focused solely on the end goal, it's easy to become consumed by fear and anxiety. Instead, try focusing on the journey itself. When we embrace the journey, we allow ourselves to be fully present in the moment and appreciate everything that comes our way, even the challenges and obstacles. Remember that life is a journey, and it's okay to slow down and enjoy the ride.

Celebrate Your Successes

Finally, don't forget to celebrate your successes, no matter how small they may seem. Each time you overcome a fear or take a step towards your goal, take a moment to acknowledge and celebrate your progress. This can help boost your confidence and motivate you to keep pushing forward.


Fear is a natural part of life, but it doesn't have to hold us back. By acknowledging our fears, taking small steps, using our fear as inspiration, embracing the journey, and celebrating our successes, we can turn our fears into fuel for our passions and achieve our goals and dreams. As Jenny showed us on her trip to Scotland, it's possible to shed the shame and let go of our fears, allowing us to fully embrace the magic that awaits us on the other side. So take that first step, and let your fears inspire you towards success!
