My guest this week is Vera Jones – Womens basketball ESPN analyst, former Syracuse basketball player, author and motivational speaker.

QUESTIONS THIS WEEK:

(1) What word or phrase from back in the day should be brought back?

(2) Who would play you in a movie of your life?

(3) What character trait of yours has gotten you in trouble the most?

Not sure what Fear(less) Chats are? Check out the Fear(less) Chat intro video here.

Your turn! Take some time this week to participate in your own #FearlessChats!

It’s super easy: (1) ask someone to chat over video; (2) ask each other 3 unrehearsed questions; (3) maintain eye contact in silence for 2 minutes (yep, it’ll feel awkward); (4) talk about how your chat went! Where was the discomfort? What did you learn about each other and yourself?

THEN, post about your chat on social media with the hashtags #FearlessChats #FearlessChallenge.

Let’s get some conversations going![/vc_column_text]

Hey Everyone – welcome to the fearless blog! I’m so excited that you’re joining me on this journey to a more powerful, productive, and positive life. The point of this blog is to help us all gain back our power over fear through better self-awareness and the Fear(less) Challenge. What is the Fear(less) Challenge? I’m so glad you asked!

Fear(less) challenges are designed to help us separate out the fears that are valid and still help us in this modern environment, from the fears that helped our ancestors survive but today are outdated and preventing us from fully living.

For our ancestors, the brain’s shortcut between discomfort and death was an important one. But for us, these are usually unhelpful residual patterns that keep us isolated, stressed, and scared of the wrong things – like failure and rejection or even other people.

Fear(less) challenges inspire us all to lean into the discomfort recognizing that not all stress means we are going to DIE. Trust me. If we could die of awkwardness or embarrassment, I would definitely not be here today.

I’ve found that the more we let go of these unnecessary fears the more we make room for the good things that make life so worth living – we become more productive, creative, connected, and conscious.

The challenges are meant to push us into spaces of discomfort while ultimately leaving the world slightly better for it.  No one is meant to be fearless. Walking in front of a greyhound bus because you don’t fear it is still a poor choice…but actively deciding, choosing what deserves your fear, and what’s an ancient shortcut that needs to be overwritten, that’s power. Making that distinction is how we can become fear (less).

So please, join in! Participate in the challenges. Post about them here and on all your socials using the #fearlesschallenge. 

And let’s become fearless together!
