We live in a world facing multiple crises, many set in motion by factors beyond our individual control. As if this were not enough, we often compound these collective and personal crises with self-judgments, insecurities and doubts — the voice I call the obnoxious roommate living in our heads. But again and again in my life I have witnessed moments of extraordinary strength, courage, and resilience, when fears are confronted, even overcome, and anything seems possible.
For me personally, the biggest step was realizing that fearlessness is not the absence of fear, but the mastery of fear. Fearlessness is like a muscle — the more you exercise it, the stronger it becomes. It’s getting to the point where our fears do not stop us from daring to think new thoughts, try new things, take big risks. It’s about getting up one more time than we fall down.
