We all experience fear. Rational or irrational, fear is very real to the person experiencing it. But fear is like a wild beast, and when you fight against a wild beast, backing it into a corner, it doesn't submit or relent. Instead, it fights against you harder, because it's just trying to survive! So instead of "conquering" our fears, what would it look like if we instead sought to understand them. Because if we seek to understand your fears more, we can learn to fear "fear itself" less.

    Fear Less Minute Ep. 03 - How to Outperform Your Fear

    If you’ve been following me, you’ve heard me say at some point that “Fear is your strength”!

Fear is my “magnificent obsession”, something that I have been pouring hours of understanding into over the past 8 years (so far). And as I always say here on the podcast: Fear is my passion, curiosity is my nature, and understanding is the gift I seek to share with all who will listen!

    So here it is: the abridged, Cliffs Notes version of my 3-step methodology for Outperforming Fear!

    Fear Less University - Episode 37: The Fear of Taking a Leap of Faith ft. Brittany Caldwell

    Fear Less University - Episode 37: The Fear of Taking a Leap of Faith ft. Brittany Caldwell

    Brittany “Britt ” Caldwell knows a thing or two about what it takes to stop chasing your dreams, and finally just GO GET THEM! She is a Dancer, Dance Teacher & Choreographer, Cycling Instructor at CycleBar, and Athlete Performance Specialist. To add to her many other titles, talents, and credits, she is also a dancer for the Honeybees, the official dance team for the Charlotte Hornets of the NBA.

    She is South Carolina born and raised currently residing in Charlotte, North Carolina. She has a B.S. in Chemical Engineering from the University of South Carolina & a Masters in Exercise Science Focused on Performance Enhancement, Injury Prevention & Rehabilitation.

    In this episode, Britt opens up about her past struggles with fear, and how the decision to leave her cushy job in corporate America to pursue what she refers to as a “passion chase”, led her to realize what she was truly placed on this earth to do! We talk about just how important support from your parents is during those times of dynamic change and purposeful displacement. We talk about the relationships between belief and fear, and how fear has both hindered and pushed her as a dreamer, a dancer, and even now as an entrepreneur. And finally, we discuss how sometimes, God is just waiting for us to make a move and get out of His way for us to receive the guidance and blessings He’s stored up for us. It’s like my grandfather Lain used to say, “Sometimes you have to get off your knees and hustle.”

    Britt is a fun-loving, genuine spirit who was a blast to sit down and talk with! We’ve since become good friends and supporters of one another from this interview, and I guarantee you’ll be inspired by her joviality, her wisdom, and her genuine zeal for life!

L AUNTIE ,

Informative, Insightful, Professional and Honest

I recommend all tune in to Coach Lain and Fear Less University. His recent interview with Lauren Boyd was amazing!! True she is his sister but Coach Lain was able to get Lauren to open up about facts and share her personal feelings about epilepsy. (The sign of a greater interviewer.). Lauren revealed information about her experiences living with seizures, her deep emotional thoughts and how she copes with the fear. LAUREN....YOU’RE AN AMAZING YOUNG LADY!! I learned SO much and will definitely go to the Epilepsy website. Also, I’m going to immediately subscribe to Coach Lain’s podcast. He’s a fantastic interviewer, obviously does his homework and extremely personable! WELL DONE....LF

The Other Lando ,

Thoughtful, Professional and Inspiring

I recently stumbled upon this podcast, and I’m so glad that I did. Lain is so knowledgeable and thoughtful in his dissection of the concept of fear, and his guests are carefully selected to enhance his message. The podcast itself is so well-produced and professional, you’d think he had a whole team of editors behind him. Highly recommend this podcast if you’re looking for something contemplative and insightful!
