Episode 112: Pain vs. Fear

podcast Apr 14, 2021

Oftentimes indulging in our own illogical fear prevents us from taking action, which then results in future pain.

For example, if you’ve ever needed to hire someone but the fear of hiring the WRONG person keeps you from making the hire, the pain you eventually feel (whether that’s burnout from working longer hours, dealing with customer service, or slow growth) drives you to take action immediately.

That is because pain drives action.

But what I want to pose on this episode this week is, why not take action sooner and save yourself from future pain?

We’ll be exploring this question and diving deep into pain vs. fear, so that we can deepen our awareness and hopefully prevent unnecessary suffering.

Listen now.
