Fear is the biggest thing that holds us (and our clients) back in our lives. But what if we could learn to overcome fear? What does brain science tell us about how to rewire our brains so that courage, instead of fear, becomes our default response?
Just like behavioral habits, emotional habits like courage are learnable skills that we can train with practice. Individuals who've developed courage still feel fear, but they've learned to harness fear and use it as a catalyst for taking action rather than paralyzing them in place. Whether it's the fear of rejection, the fear of failure, or the fear of doing great things -- harnessing, managing, and overcoming our fears will create the kinds of breakthroughs we and our clients want most!
In this session, James Garrett will walk us through what the science says about how to build our "courage muscle," his own personal journey trying to do this in his own life, and how he's coached his clients to overcome the fears in their own lives.
What you will learn:
• Why emotional habits like courage are learnable skills that we can train with practice
• How to help your clients overcome the fear of failure, fear of rejection, and fear of looking stupid
• How we can change our emotional habits just like we can change our behavioral habits
• How to apply the neuroscience of "extinction" to diminish fears and anxieties our clients struggle with
• How to integrate resilience practices with clients that nurture and strengthen the neural pathways of courage
• Why doing things that make us uncomfortable is the surest path to growth
