It’s easy to say “don’t act from fear,” but how do you know when you’re in fear? And how do you know which path to take? We always know, even when we think we don’t know.
Flying trapeze. Firewalks. Trampoline. Skydiving. I’ve mastered the art of acting in the face of fear in situations where the evolutionary “fight or flight” response is working as designed: to warn me of situations that are actually a threat to my life and well-being. But this is different.
There is a palpable fear in the air. People are reeling. They are paralyzed with anxiety. You hear the call to move forward, to move on. But how? I’m sharing an intimate story to help you.
Everyone says to know your “why.” When it comes to your fears, the “why” is irrelevant. I’ll explain.
I’m sitting on a train, tensing in fear. So I’m digging it up and laying it out. Warning: this is raw and vulnerable.
