To live a fulfilling life without having the courage to face our fears is an impossibility. Fear can be a useful servant protecting us from real dangers. However, its obsession with imaginary doom-and-gloom outcomes can preclude us from living satisfying lives. It is the voice in our heads determined to maintain the status quo, thus prohibiting our passage into the unknown, where growth takes place.

On today’s QOD episode, Dan Millman provides you with clear guidelines about when to listen to fear, and when to ignore it. This clip comes from Dan’s audio program, The Peaceful Warrior’s Path to Everyday Enlightenment: 12 Gateways to Your Spiritual Growth, available on Audible and from Nightingale Conant.
