Thanks for joining us for episode 2!
What if you can take incredibly difficult, positive action even while you are scared, fearful and nervous? What could you achieve if fear wasn't holding you back?
We believe that there is an unhealthy pursuit of fearlessness. If you strive to be fearless, every time you experience fear, nerves or anxiety, you may think that there is something wrong with you. You may think that you are weak or broken. You may think that you simply can't take the action that's needed. But, that is simply not true.
Fear is a natural reaction. It's your body's way of telling you that something important is about to happen and that your body is getting prepared to take action. It tells you what you are at risk of gaining or losing something and that helps you form a greater understanding of what you value and what is important to you.
When you experience fear, figure out what the fear is telling you and let that guide you in taking valued, positive action to help you move forward. Instead of letting fear tell you that you can't do something, ask 'How can I do this?'. Of course, when it is a dangerous situation, allow fear to tell you to protect yourself - that too is valued action.
Your challenge for the week, create a daily reminder in your phone that says, "Don't be fearless, be brave!". And, when faced with a positive, valued action that scares you, instead of saying, "I can't", ask "How can I?".
