Episode #49: Strategies to Overcome Your Fears

If someone were to ask you what you’re afraid of, what would you say? Heights? (I sure am!) Maybe you’d answer with spiders or dogs. Or would you go deeper, and blurt out “failure” or “hurting people’s feelings”? There is no right answer of course, but all types of fear hold us back in some way. 

Recently, my fear of heights clashed with my love of mountain biking, and I had to cross a railway bridge over a river. I was terrified, and that fear somewhat tainted the ride up until I managed (somehow) to get across. In my coaching, facing fears comes up with each and every client because to keep growing and moving forward, they need to conquer the things keeping them stuck.

In this episode, I have ten strategies that you can use to help you overcome your fears of bugs or disappointment, both in the moment and for good.
