I would put a comma after fear. As for helping you with translation, this forum will assist you, but you must provide us with your attempt at a translation first.

I agree with Poli.

The idiom in the link could inspire you,

Ah, okay. My attempt would be -

' Sin miedo, coraje no existiria.'

Thanks

That's a good attempt. Existiría requires an accent mark. The word coraje has a double meaning in Spanish. Often it means chutzpah or audacity. More commonly valor is used because it is less ambiguous.

Add an article before 'valor'.

You might try 'No hay valor sin miedo."

También se podría decir:

Sin miedo, la valentía no existiría.

Si no hubiera miedo, no podría existir la valentía.

I also like "No hay valor sin miedo"...

Saludos cordiales.
