Are there any stories from Norse mythology, where a person has to face a fear and is rewarded for it/succeeds?

All that springs to mind is Tyr/Fenrir story, where Tyr puts his hand in the mouth of Fenrir, knowing he will lose it - for a greater good. But that is not really about fear, more about sacrifice for a greater good.
