  1. Good post! It is actually quite crazy what we fear and what we aren’t afraid of. People don’t have the courage to swim because of sharks but drive 100 miles an hour while texting… Sounds like an interesting book, in which ways does it teach you how to become a leader?

  2. This post really has me thinking! I used to fear a bunch of different things till my dad passed away last summer, and now I have little fears. I think we should all just live life to the fullest because we never know what tomorrow brings. This book seems like a good read!

  3. This post definitely made me interested in reading this book! I don’t often think about the technicalities in risk taking, but it is definitely something worth reading about. I think this would be a very thought provoking book.

  4. I never thought about fear the way you explained. If this is just one aspect of the book, I’m sold! I’m interested in also learning what it says about leadership and the advice it gives. Guess I have to buy the book now!

  5. Will Smith recently spoke about how “Bliss is on the other side of fear” that basically the best things in life are on the other side of terror, on the other side of your maximum fear are the best things in life. You have to go beyond your limits and risk it all to experience maximum pleasure. I face this daily, for example although this sounds dumb, I was jumping off a balcony ledge onto the trampoline below with the little boy I nanny for. To be completely honest, I was terrified. Images of me breaking my ankles, breaking my necking, having to be rushed to the hospital flawed through my mind. But the little boy told me “Lelia, you have to face your fear and just jump”. This remind me of what Will Smith said and I jumped. It was a total adrenaline rush and I loved it. I would have never experienced that sensation, if i chosen not to jump. Although this is a very surface level example, I think this can apply to everyones life. And if this book talks about risks and facing your fears I think everyone, including myself, could benefit.

  6. This book sounds like it is a good read but also a helpful one. Decisions mold every corner of our lives and hopfully they are good decisions that is doing the molding.
