BE YOUR OWN SUPER HERO:
BEAT FEAR, DOUBT, AND WORRY The ninth of the 11 POWER PRACTICES is to learn to Beat Fear, Doubt, and Worry.
Sometimes you can feel scared when you are not sure about something or something is
new to you. This is called fear. Fear can make you think that you cannot do something
because you have not done it before. For example, maybe you want to play on the T-ball
team, but you are scared because you are not sure if you can hit or catch the ball. You
can beat your fear by saying to yourself, “I will try because it looks fun and I will learn
how to do it well!”
Doubt is a feeling of being unsure. Doubt can make you think that you do not have good
ideas. For example, maybe you want to draw or paint a really big, beautiful tree. But
you have not drawn a tree that big. Doubt makes you feel like you cannot do it. But that
is not really true. You have not tried yet, so how do you know? You can beat doubt by
saying to yourself, “I have painted other trees, so I can paint this one, just bigger.”
Worry is when you think something will go wrong. Worry is when you think about the
bad things that MIGHT happen. Worry can stop you from doing things you want to do. For example, maybe you worry that people will laugh at your painting or will not like it. Or maybe you are afraid people will not like you if you do not do something right. This
is called worry. But really, you do not know what will happen until you try.
Be a Super Hero to Yourself and Beat Fear, Doubt, and Worry. You have the POWER
to do a lot of things that you try to do.

#9
I remember, when I was in the 3rd grade, I had the chance to be in a special program
at a new school. My mom said it would be good for me to go to this new school. She
said I would learn many important things. I was scared to go to this new school. I
worried about making new friends and leaving my old teachers. I doubted if I was smart
enough. So, I talked to my teachers and parents about my fears. They helped me to
not be afraid. I went the new school and found out that I was very smart. I made new
friends and I loved my new teachers.
POWER PIONEER COMMENTS
Ashlee:
It is ok to be afraid just ask a friend or someone to go with you or help you to do what
you want to try. One day during my Thanksgiving vacation in San Antonio, Texas, I
wanted to pet my cousin’s dog. I was afraid of the dog but I asked my cousin to go
outside with me to pet the dog and I was less afraid since she was with me.
