You know the dream – the one where you are being chased and you simply can’t run fast enough. Have you ever actually turned around to look at what’s chasing you?
Risk wouldn’t be risk without the fear. Most of us can feel fear lurking in our lives, but we can’t put our finger on it. It hovers around behind us, almost like a ghost, something we’re afraid to stop and examine for fear that it will consume us. I’m a firm believer that you can’t tackle what you don’t know. The critical part of living with and thriving through the unique stimulation, excitement, and adrenaline that comes with fear is actually defining and facing what you’re afraid of.
