Your beliefs around fear can either mobilize you or paralyze you. Many people think that I’m fearless, but that’s actually not the case. Plenty of things scare me! But throughout my childhood, I developed a postulate around fear that has enabled me to plow forward despite it.
This postulate (which you will hear about in this episode) has actually become the very thing that has caused me massive amounts of stress, anxiety, nausea, and physical pain in recent months surrounding my workout sessions.
Listen to what I realized has been going on with me lately and how one simple question to my trainer Mark has completely changed everything.
You will hear:
How my back pain history led me down the path towards strength training
What my REAL problem was with my back, and how I made the pain disappear (it isn’t what you think)
How to identify real fear
A unique tip for facing fear head-on and learning how to respond to it
How to assess a situation rationally (and how this skill can be damaged when authority figures in a child’s life shout at them)
…and so many more gold nuggets that will help you sculpt a shit-hot physique even if you’re afraid of what it might take to do it
“Do what you can do and not what you THINK you can do.”
