3 Ways To Deal With Fear…

The inevitable emotion that ALL living creatures have to face. And yes, you’ll expect to cross paths with fear countless of times in your life.

The truth about fear
Most people in the world view fear as a form of threat, something that is out to hurt them.

A signal coming from the least evolved part of our brain. The reptilian brain.

But why do we experience that fear?
Simply put, our minds are designed to keep us alive. Or you can call it a 24/7 survival mode.
It’s here to stay and it’s here to warn us of dangerous or potential threats, especially the “unknown”.
However, you don’t have to listen to it all the time! In fact, you shouldn’t.
Because it’s basically a protective mechanism that only overrides reason in most cases.
