I see scores of people sharing articles, quotes and Facebook memes reminding you that your purpose for being alive is to serve other people.
My problem is that it’s not true. At least, it’s not true for everyone.
As human animals, fear is hardwired into our brains. Fear of the unknown, fear of the dark, fear of big snarling carnivores all helped our ancestors survive—and pass on their genes—in the African savannah. Fear of heights, fear of snakes, fear of crowds can all continue to contribute to our survival even today.
Watch the video to learn 3 steps from the Fear Releasing Method™ to release your fear in any situation.
If you’ve been following my work on the 7 primary fears, you may remember that my primary fear is vulnerability, which translates into the fear of being criticized or ridiculed.
