THE GENEROUS CHANGE PODCAST

EPISODE 3 - SHINGLES & A PANIC ATTACK

Episode 3: Shingles & A Panic Attack

*Explicit! A teeny bit of adult language in this episode.*

On day 50 of entrepreneurship, we're talking FEAR. It can protect you from doing something stupid or motivate you to take a risk. In this episode, we share our fears and exercises that help us deal with them. If you're facing any big, scary decision, this episode is for you!

Big ideas:

*Fear - it can protect, motivate or both. Recognize it, listen to it, but don't let it drive the car.

*Stress - it physically manifests (like, say, as Shingles or a panic attack). Learn from us - before it's impossible to ignore, get to the root of it. Meditate, write it out, talk to your future self (yeah, it sounds crazy, but it's pretty awesome).

*Going big. Every change requires expansion. It's easy to worry what people will think of you. People who love you will be scared - for you and for them. People will judge you, be jealous of you and write snarky comments about you on social media. Don't let that stop you from going big. Think about who you want to be in 10 years? Smaller? Nope. Bigger, better, wiser & awesomer.
