Most of the things we’re afraid of are actually other things.

Fear is sneaky like that. Always wearing disguises to throw us off.

THE GOOD NEWS IS: If you can identify the fear behind the fear, you can beat it.

More than that – you can use it.

As a compass.

As a fuel source.

As an invitation to evolve.

Today we’re going to explore a collection of fears, the bigger fears behind them and to convert them into something more useful:
