I don’t need to tell you how bad fear is for you.
Sure, little bits of it are great.
It gets you out of the way of a speeding car.
Or forces you to dig deep, rather than let yourself slide into poverty.
But then the fear is supposed to pass.
When it doesn’t pass, it becomes chronic. That’s when things get nasty.
I could go into the psychology of chronic fear – how it primes you for constant battle, seeing everything in the world as a threat.
I could talk about the physiology of fear – how it reroutes vital resources away from growth, repair and vitality.
But I won’t.

And that’s what my Neural Reset is all about:
