Breaking the Loop (2) - RE: Conquering Your Fear

... isn't as easy as it sounds (nothing ever is)... 

But, as just as a sequel to my blog entry about "Breaking The Loop," (which currently can be found at http://sethflynnbarkan.com/node/7 although that's likely to change as I figure out wtf I'm doing with the urls on my site, so should be able to be found by searching sethflynnbarkan.com for "Breaking the loop," should that link fail)... regardless, I offer the following 3 awesome links to pieces about fear, conquering it, and basically overcoming the person you are so you can maybe get closer to being the person you would like to be (a lifelong project which, in spite of years of practice, I have yet to complete):

 

...For so many of us, fear is really about REJECTION. Check out this awesome bit of radio about "The Rejection Game!" (you can play too): http://www.npr.org/sections/health-shots/2015/01/16/377239011/by-making-a-game-out-of-rejection-a-man-conquers-fear

... and also...

... an awesome hour of radio from NPR's "Invisibilia" show: http://www.npr.org/programs/invisibilia/377515477/fearless

...and finally...

... Although Amy Cuddy's 2012 "fake it till you make it/become it" ted talk has become absurdly popular, well, if you haven't seen it, you should watch it: https://www.ted.com/talks/amy_cuddy_your_body_language_shapes_who_you_are?language=en
