I’ve been trying to push through my fears, but it never works for me. How will this be any different?

Home FAQ I’ve been trying to push through my fears, but it never works for me. How will this be any different?

Because I DON’T recommend “pushing through fear”.

Pushing through fear is a lot like pushing through the crowds as you run a marathon, or pushing a one ton boulder up a mountain you’re trying to climb: exhausting, slower than necessary, potentially painful, and generally not what we would deem successful. Anything you try to do in your life, while pushing through fear, will be less powerful and less wonderful since most of your energy is going to pushing, instead of going toward your life, your relationships, or your deeper needs.

This process helps you do something better than pushing the fear; it helps you examine it, heal it, and move on without it. Yes, this means pausing, which can feel like slowing down. But I guarantee it’s much faster and more powerful when you’re able to experience the lightness, energy and freedom it creates.
