How to Break Free from the Prison of Fear and Anxiety

October 20, 2023

This week, Gay and Mike go deep on how to overcome anxiety, fear and other crazy emotions that can hold you back from your next level of success and happiness.

As many of you know, Mike went through some intense personal challenges earlier this year that triggered severe anxiety and fear in him. He's not ashamed to say he completely lost his mind for a bit! But with Gay's wisdom and support, along with some deep inner work, Mike was able to regain his center.

In this episode, Gay and Mike share openly about our own journeys conquering fear and anxiety, including a terrifying THC reaction I had that sent me to the hospital! You'll hear amazing insights like:

  • Why you have to get fear out of your head and into your body to resolve it
  • Tools to interrupt your anxiety patterns and reframe what they mean
  • How to turn your greatest fear into your greatest source of power
  • Real life stories of people who overcame extreme adversity
  • Action steps to make friends with fear and unlock your blocked genius!

Trust us, this episode comes at the perfect time. If you're like us, you've probably noticed there seems to be more fear and anxiety swirling around lately than ever before. People are freaking out about all kinds of stuff – the state of the world, the economy, you name it.

We also talk about how fear can actually be harnessed as rocket fuel for your next level. You just have to learn how to dance with the bear, as Gay likes to say.

So if you or someone you care about is struggling with fear, anxiety or feeling blocked from your potential, do yourself a favor and have a listen.
