The Art and Science of Becoming Fear-Wise
Harness Your Fear
Two kinds of fear. Sometimes, emotions like fear can be helpful. A few years ago, Dr. Helen Odessky, clinical psychologist and author of the best-selling motivational book Stop Anxiety from Stopping You, found herself part of a minor fender-bender on a major interstate. Looking back at her daughter, she feared that if another car hit them, her daughter’s life would be in danger. A few minutes after retreating to another car in a safer location, an 18-wheeler barrelled into her car and demolished it. Her fear saved both her daughter’s life and her own.
