From Fear to Joy: Should you be Fearless

We often hear the phrase BE FEARLESS. It is shouted out at us across the divide, echoing in the canyon as you stand on the precipice about to take the leap. As business leaders, entrepreneurs, students, and anyone trying to achieve their goals in life, we keep coming across the phrase BE FEARLESS. But should you really be fearless?

In this video I’ll take you ice skating and I’ll tell you a story about fear and risk. Fear holds us back from living a life with joy. So what can we do about it? I’ll share a slightly different way to think about being fearless, taking risks, and finding our way to joy. I hope you find the wisdom and inspiration to live life with less fear and more joy.

As I was starting to make this video I was inspired by the words of the poet Hafiz:

“It’s impossible, said pride

It’s risky, said experience

It’s pointless, said reason

Give it a try, whispered the heart”

– Hafiz

These words tell us that we will find many reasons to avoid risk, but if we listen to our heart, we’ll understand our own needs and find our way to joy.

How do you manage fear?
