Many people struggle with fear in their daily lives. It can manifest during public speaking, in personal safety situations, or simply when dealing with everyday conflicts in day-to-day work. Often, this fear can incapacitate people, and prevent them from living confidently and assertively. In this episode, Coach Tony Blauer, an expert in self-defence and fear management, shares how to harness and transform your fear into a decisive, empowering tool. Join us as we explore his insights into understanding and managing your fears, ultimately equipping you with the means to engage life’s challenges head-on.
