The term fear is from the Middle English fere, from Old English fær "calamity, sudden danger, peril, sudden attack," from Proto-Germanic *feraz "danger" (source also of Old Saxon far "ambush," Old Norse far "harm, distress, deception," Dutch gevaar, German Gefahr "danger.")
What is holding you back? Are you afraid to make mistakes? Are you afraid to be wrong? Are you afraid to not be perfect? Actions create momentum. Take a chance. Take a risk. Fear is not your friend and is usually hiding in your mind waiting for you to ask a question.
Fear is not a friend, courage to create futures, peer around corners
