Tackle your fears in the New Year

IT’S ABOUT TIME TO START THINK­ING OF THE YEAR AHEAD AND THE RES­O­LU­TIONS YOU MAY MAKE. IF GET­TING OUT OF YOUR COM­FORT ZONE IS ON THE AGENDA, WHY NOT TAKE UP THE 100 DAYS WITH­OUT FEAR CHAL­LENGE?

The ‘100 Days With­out Fear’ chal­lenge was started by Michelle Poler for her fi­nal project in her grad­u­ate pro­gram, when she re­alised that her anx­i­eties and need for con­trol were stop­ping her from liv­ing life to the fullest. So she made a list of ev­ery­thing that scared her – from pain to an­i­mals, to wear­ing pat­terns – and de­voted 100 days to tack­ling a fear a day. Her project cul­mi­nated in a TED talk at Tedx­hous­ton, where she said, “I don’t be­lieve in ab­so­lute fear­less­ness, but I do be­lieve that we can ne­go­ti­ate with our fears. It’s a way to pur­sue our dreams and open our­selves to ex­pe­ri­ences that we never even con­sid­ered.” And that’s some­thing we can all take on board. In need of in­spi­ra­tion?
