In today’s episode I’m talking with Fear Technician and motivational speaker, Guryan Tighe. She is an empathetic sales and strategic business development leader and a good friend on the journey.
Guryan is helping us dig deep to understand why we fear our fears. She is sharing why fear can be our biggest ally. It can shine a light on the exact place we need to apply our courage and show us what matters most to us.
My discussion with Guyran was full of insight you might not have considered before. Here is a summary of some of the most impactful ideas from this episode.
Fear is Your Treasure Map
It was refreshing to hear the idea that we really never overcome or conquer our fears. They are not a one and done experience. When we take an honest look at our fears, they can shine a light on our biggest priorities.
Those fears can also give us better clues to discovering our ultimate why or purpose in life. In this way, fear loses it’s negative connotation and becomes a gift!
Fear Can Unite Us, Not Divide Us
Division is a word that characterizes our nation right now. We’re all fearful of scarcity in some form. But Guryan pointed out that the things people are most angry about are driven by our deepest fears coming to fruition.
When we realize that we have the same fear as another person, we are instantly connected, even if they are a stranger. Fear is the ultimate equalizer.
Get Curious About Your Fear
If you’re ready for fear to start losing its grip on you, you can start by getting curious about your fear. Ask yourself: what are you trying to protect? What are you afraid to lose? When the fear hits, go deeper and ask: what is actually true in this moment? And what is the story you’re telling yourself?
As Guyran noted, when fear is your ally, choice is possible.
