Fear is almost always your own energy turned in the wrong direction. When you are terrified to speak to a group, the adrenaline you feel is your own body mobilizing for the challenge. Once you get in harness, that same adrenaline will be your best friend. Fear does not arrive to undermine you, it is there to empower you so you can run faster, jump higher, or bring full awareness to a challenge. It is a great day in our lives when we stop running from fear and embrace it for what it is, our own power. As Joseph Campbell put it, “The cave you fear to enter holds the treasure you seek.”
