Quotes:
“Fear-based behaviors are actually brain-based habits. We habitually respond to fear that we feel in these fear-based pattern ways that are in part governed by the brain, to the point where it becomes our identity.”

“There are different component parts of fear… one part is how you habitually dealt with fear or not liking the situation you’re in in the past. Have I been avoiding, pleasing or attacking the fear?”

“You are never going to be fearless, but you can fear less.”
