Fear is born from pain, and its primary objective is to protect us -- from loss, change, uncertainty, rejection, failure. This protection, while well-intentioned, is misguided -- fear shuts us down in the very moment that life is presenting us with opportunity. It's in discovering what your fears have been trying to protect you from that you find the inspired life that they're pointing you toward: the flipside of fear.
In this powerful exploration of how to transform your fear into freedom, you will learn a practical three-step process that will help you expand your comfort zone and become the person you want to be -- by finding the life-giving force hidden in every one of your fears.
