Embracing fear

Whether it’s a scary movie on a Friday night, a stomach churning roller coaster, or jumping off the high diving board at the pool, we seek out fear.

Why? It’s anxiety-inducing and uncomfortable. But it’s also exhilarating when we allow it to pull us along. We like the adrenaline rush. It makes us feel alive.

We need fear in our lives. Fear has always kept us on our toes – pushing us to be more aware of dangers, keep an eye out for opportunities and to continue developing our skills.

We need to do things that scare us in our lives – speaking in public, taking a new class, having a tough conversation, stepping into a new role.

Healthy fear pushes us out of our comfort zone and keeps us growing. Don’t shy away from fear, embrace it as a chance to improve yourself.
