In this podcast we take a look at fear and how it may be limiting our experience in this life.
Fear is the elephant in the room. Everybody feels it, but nobody wants to admit it or address it. It tends to evoke feelings of shame, as if we are not supposed to ever feel fear.
We touch on the evolution of the mankind and how our fear response is ill-adapted to our modern world.
We talk about the most common fears people experience: fear of death, failure, change, the unknown, loss, as well as most people’s biggest fear: fear of judgment from their peers.
We discuss how these different fears can influence and even control our behaviors and decisions and prevent us from living our fullest lives.
We address how almost all of this fear is rooted in irrational thoughts and how the key to overcoming them starts with this realization.
In this weeks Call-To-Action we face our fears. We look within ourselves and take inventory of the fears that are influencing our lives. We assess how they are limiting our experience and what thoughts are fueling them. We key in on the thoughts and verify that they are ultimately irrational. Knowing this, we make a plan to face our fears and overcome them.
I tell a story about overcoming some fear that I had when I was younger and how powerful it was to face it and overcome it and know that it no longer influences my life.
We end the podcast with the quote by Bill See from the book 33 Days: Touring In A Van. Sleeping On Floors. Chasing A Dream. “The brave don’t live forever, but the cautious don’t live at all. The only thing that’s truly terrifying is the unlived life.” That quote has been attributed to several people so I can’t say for certain that it’s his quote. I can say, however, that it’s a powerful quote and one we should all reflect on.
