Becoming Fearless – David Stone pt 1
As many of you are very well aware, especially at the time of this recording with the Covid-19 debacle going on, fear is a very real thing in the life of many people. Unfortunately, it is not very healthy if someone is totally consumed by worry and fear over their health, the health of their loved ones or money, work, jobs and a myriad of different things going on right now.
My guest today is David Stone, co-founder of “I-Fearless.com” and author of the book “Unsubscribe from Anxiety: Opt Out of the Myth That Worry Is Required and Take Charge of Your Own Life Now.”
David got fed up with the fear, the anxiety and the self-doubt that was getting in the way of life. So he set out to find a better way. Now, he helps others by sharing what he has learned through books, workshops, keynote speeches and on his blog. He is a provocative, inspiring and disruptive writer, speaker and change agent. He makes hard topics accessible and helps people enjoy the expansion of their comfort zones. David has a saying that I just love, it is “Your parachute can’t open until you’ve jumped out of the plane!” I love that…
