Find Your Fear?

I know. You’ve heard tall, booming voices implore you to “Face down your fear and conquer it!” and walk across coals of fire. And maybe you’ve been told that if you focus more on gratitude, your fear will vanish.

But “Find Your Fear“? Yes. My experience and research keep pointing back to this insight:

When we shed light on our darkest fears, we can make more enlightened choices for good work, strong relationships, effective parenting, rich creativity, and healthy money habits.

When you find your fear, you can find your way to choose courage again and again.

The Find Your Fear Resources here, based on my research and experience, get you on your way.

“Nancy helped me understand the fears I was facing in my professional life. Her coaching led me to discover assumptions I was making about my level of skill and performance that were based on false narratives in my mind. The fears were actually somewhat paralyzing, preventing me from being fully effective. Nancy’s clear and ingenious approach to identifying fact version fiction not only proved enlightening, but also led to my developing stronger and more effective communication skills. The burden of these fears has completely evaporated and I’m so much more productive. I would highly recommend her to anyone who’s fears are holding them back.”
