(At least here in America) one of the most common pieces of advice you’ll hear for overcoming fear is to “just grit your teeth and fight your way through it!”
That advice is plain silly!
Fear is not something we should simply muscle through. Instead, it is a primitive emotion that does everything it can to keep us safe.
This week I have a conversation with Dr. Mary Ayers who was in exactly that situation. She had to do something that scared her and was told by those around her that she just had to overcome the fear and get on with it.
She decided to take another path. She faced the fear head on, figured out why it was there, and removed it. Not only does Mary share her own experience of transforming fear, she shares how she did it AND how you can do it too.
