    14: Action steps to overcoming your biggest fears

    14: Action steps to overcoming your biggest fears

    Success is on the other side of fear. But what fears do you have anyway? Can you pinpoint the moment a fear became your truth? The word fear is often misinterpreted. When I talk about fear, I’m not talking about “being afraid of something”. Fear, in the way that I mean it, is an emotional reaction to something your ego finds dangerous. Overcoming fear to succeed means acknowledging risk, but stepping out of your comfort zone anyway in order to grow.

    In this episode we'll go through 6 action steps you can take to overcome your biggest fears.

Content is ok- just tighten it up

The content was ok, but I lost attention and interest due to the yammering off topic, repetitiveness and not getting to a point. I would stay interested if it was more concise.
