How to Overcome Fear with Dr. Srini Pillay

Written by Jason Ferruggia Topics: Mindset, Podcast

Screen Shot 2017-02-06 at 6.57.22 AMEverybody has fears.

They cause us anxiety and keep us awake at night. Most of these fears are imagined. They aren’t real.

Mark Twain said, “I am an old man and have known a great many troubles, but most of them never happened.”

Those who succeed in life and find happiness are those who can overcome their fears.  They can separate real from imagined. They face the fear and move forward.

Those who cannot will remain stagnant, frustrated and crippled.

This is not the life you want.

In this episode, I sit down with the author of Life Unlocked, and Total Brain Makeover, Dr. Srini Pillay. We discuss exactly how you can become your best self.
