What are you afraid of?

New York Times bestselling author, top-rated podcaster, entrepreneur and innovator, Ruth Soukup, shares the 7 Fear Archetypes, how to determine which one we are, and how we can use this information to overcome the fear in our daily life.

Ruth explains how not all fear is created equally and that we could all have a different experience to the same ‘fear.’ What’s more, a lot of our fear is actually subconscious. It’s only when we shine the light on it and identify it that we have the power to do something about it.

Courage is like a muscle. You have to constantly exercise it.
