Episode Summary

In this episode of The GS Nation Podcast, Cary and Dave chat about their fears and what it means to have courage. Fear has played a crucial role in our evolution as human beings, yet doesn’t always play its intended role in our modern society. Oftentimes, what we are afraid of is actually our ticket to bliss and freedom. We discuss harnessing your fears and using that fear as fuel to move you forward, something our good friend Brian of Fear Sherpa often discusses. We also chat about the “what if” question and demonstrate a fear setting exercise that we think you will really enjoy. If you’re afraid of something that is preventing you from taking the next step forward, this is the episode for you.
