Thought Experiment:

We talked a lot about fear as a motivator in this episode. Fear of change, fear of uncertainty, and sometimes even fear of no change can be powerful influences on our decisions in life.

Has fear ever motivated you? What was the outcome of that experience?

Getting comfortable with conquering your fears is a really powerful thing. Every time you overcome a fear, you become a stronger more confident version of yourself. (See Episode 1: The Interplay Between Fear & Confidence).

One of Kristi’s favorite quotes has always been, “face your fears, live your dreams.” So, we must ask: what is fear holding you back from in life? Let us know below, we’d love to help you take one step closer to that fear to create the life of your dreams.
