Singing in front of a busy restaurant was the first challenge to kick off Scott Simon’s year of doing one thing daily to test his courage. He had been afraid to sing in public for 35 years but says this changed his life – he felt powerful and free.
A Facebook post about it went viral and kicked off the Scare Your Soul movement of people challenging themselves and others to push through their fears and be their best selves. He talks about how fear is one of our primal emotions, but how to understand the difference between real fear and toxic fear. Scott also discusses how curiosity leads to connection, setting foundations for a gratitude practice, and the power of having an accountability partner.
