While fear is an important evolutionary mechanism that can help protect you in some situations, it can also hold you back from living fully and reaching your highest potential. Therefore, finding ways to reduce the types of fear that may be having a negative impact on your life can help you unlock possibilities and feel greater happiness. 

As a biologist and stress expert, Dr. Rebecca Heiss – our guest in Episode 111 of The MINDSet Game® podcast – has an in-depth understanding of fear in both its helpful and harmful forms. She is also the author of the newly acclaimed book, Instinct: Rewire Your Brain with Science-Backed Solutions to Increase Productivity and Achieve Success, the founder and CEO of the 360-review mobile application Icueity™, and a highly sought-after professional speaker. In this episode, Rebecca discusses the following:

  • Her definition of being fear(less), and how our primal sense of fear that is designed to keep us safe can create obstacles in everyday situations
  • The ABCs of lessening fear – a simple editing process that consists of awareness and asking questions about the perceived threat, breathing (specifically, a type of breath called a physiological sigh), and engaging your curiosity
  • Techniques for altering the stories you tell yourself in order to overcome fears and anxieties about the future
  • Why fear can be a gift and how to recognize the positive insight it can provide
  • Why it’s particularly important for leaders to work on overcoming their own fears and radiating positive energy in order to create a sense of calm and happiness in those around them
