Want to build a life and business around doing what you love? Me too. Let’s connect.

We’ve been talking a lot about fear recently on  The School of Greatness.

It’s because I’m fascinated by it and how to use it to your best advantage.

But beyond that, I’m learning so much about myself, how I operate on a sub-conscious level, and how I can show myself more compassion by understanding where fear comes from.

We’ve talked about the upside of dark emotions, how to turn stress into serenity, and now today’s guest, Dr. Lissa Rankin, is coming back on the show to share how we can heal ourselves (physically and emotionally) when we understand fear.

Lissa is an incredible example of this in her own life, but for her new book on fear, she actually traveled the world and talked to many different people in varied cultures to better understand our concept of fear in the West.

In our conversation she pulls the covers back on how fear affects our physical health, how our society perpetuates a sick relationship with fear, and how we truly have the power to heal ourselves when we understand what is behind our fear.

No matter who you are, where you live, or what you’re going through, this conversation is going to speak to you.

Lissa Rankin’s incredible compassion, energy, and wisdom pours out of her in Episode 163 as she explains the fear cure.
