The Formula for Fighting Your Fears

The Formula for Fighting Your Fears

When you think of the word “fear”, what comes to mind? Is it a collection of small things, or just one large looming emotion pertaining to something that scares you at a visceral level? Things you fear are like a close-knit bunch of friends; they usually flock together lending each other the power needed to control you. 

In this episode, Varun explores what it means to be afraid, and how you can wield that fear to grow as an individual. As humans, we tend to avoid things that scare us. By facing it head-on and acknowledging its existence, you’re already taking away a big part of its control over you. Tune in to learn battle secrets against fear.
