Being brave isn’t always easy, so sometimes a little inspiration from others is in order.

Our friends at Real Simple have rounded up advice from eight gutsy broads. Among them: our favorite firefighter-turned-author, Caroline Paul!

Paul, whom you might remember is an outdoor adventurer and milk-carton-boat-builder, suggests that in fear-inducing moments, readers give the other feelings that arise along with trepidation — exhilaration, for example — their due. Don’t let fear steal the show, basically. “People think I’m against fear,” she says. “I’m not. I’m just pro-bravery.”
