“How much permission are you going to give yourself to actually go after what you really want?” ~ Michael Challenger
What if we celebrated challenges and viewed discomfort as part of the growth process? Would fear still have its crippling effect? Michael Challenger answers these questions and more in today’s exploration in moving through fear. Between his Don’t Let Fear Paralyze You! book and online course, Michael passionately leads men through fear and into the life of their dreams. As you’ll learn, the biggest step we can take to transcend our fear is to share it with our fellows. The emotional authenticity and vulnerability used when expressing our struggles are the exact energies needed for a rich, fulfilled life.
Courage is the antidote to fear, but requires intentional cultivation. Michael masterfully teaches us how to practice this muscle as well as how to liberate ourselves from fearful holding patterns. Learning to push our comfort zones is part of the healing journey, and often we simply need motivation and support before we break free. Michael’s empowering and encouraging message is the perfect remedy for anyone feeling stuck or frozen by fear.
