Fear is something we all face in our lives. For some of us (including some who don’t realize it), fear affects our behavior in profound ways, because we haven’t developed the courage to change this. Many people believe that courage is the same as fearlessness. In reality, courage is what allows us to do something in spite of the fear, whether it’s running into a burning building to save someone, touching someone’s pet snake to get over a phobia, or even just asking someone out on a date. Over time, we fall into habits, developing fear-based traits, such as pessimism. Our guest for this episode breaks it all down for us: what these traits are and how to change our behavior to reduce fear’s grip on us.
