Mastering Fear . I never thought of fear as something to be mastered. I always felt you needed to just push past fear. Sort of pretend it doesn’t exist. I have a new appreciation for fear now and how we can truly change how we think about fear and how it can paralyze us.
Last episode I interviewed Brandon Webb. John David Mann is his co-author for their latest collaboration, and I think one of their most powerful for the greater world. But I have a tendency to say that about all their books because each one visibly shifts my life and invisibly shifts my thinking.
Take a listen as John shares with me his favorites concepts in the book and how they affected his life. His conversation around comfort zones and the Echo chamber are different then you have probably heard before.
He and Brandon Webb are a writing team for the ages. Dare I compare them to the team of Bob Burg and John David Mann? I’ve recommended this book to random strangers and friends and each person reaches out and comments on different parts of the book and how it has impacted them.
Take a listen and speak your fear so you can learn to master it.
