It turned out, that the video clip didn’t include “5 ways…” in fact, there wasn’t a list of anything. It was merely a clip of a larger video where I assume five main points were summarized. What I did find, however, was that the content of the video was perhaps the most profound way of describing fear’s effect on the self. It was Elizabeth Gilbert describing her take on fear: IT MAKES YOU BORING!
What? I don’t understand, but I DO KNOW I DON'T WANT TO BE BORING!
She does an incredible job, playing to our ego when it comes to fighting fear. Our ego's devilish little voice inside our head continually tells us we're not good enough, it won't' work, we'll be ridiculed, we suck, etc.
