Tim Ferriss, Why You Should Define Your Fears, not your goals!

Let me be completely honest...

When I read this title, I was skeptical.

It goes against everything I learned on this subject.

But since Tim Ferriss was giving the Ted Talk, I decided to listen.

Read the intro below and watch the video.  It is worth your time.

The hard choices -- what we most fear doing, asking, saying -- are very often exactly what we need to do. How can we overcome self-paralysis and take action? Tim Ferriss encourages us to fully envision and write down our fears in detail, in a simple but powerful exercise he calls "fear-setting." Learn more about how this practice can help you thrive in high-stress environments and separate what you can control from what you cannot.

Truth bombs are dropped all throughout this talk.

For instance...

“We suffer more in imagination than in reality.” - Seneca  #reality

"Easy choices, hard life. Hard choices, easy life" - Jerzy Gregorek  #choices

So the focus is on Fear Setting, which takes on three parts:

Tim Ferriss explains:

Tim Ferriss - What If
Tim Ferriss - Possible Benefit
Tim Ferris - Cost of Inaction

If you follow this process referred to as Fear Setting by Tim Ferriss then you can live and follow the philosophy of stoicism.

In conclusion, I must say, Tim Ferriss brought me over to his way of thinking.  I resisted but when you know you need to do something to improve, this seems to be a great starting point.

I hope you liked this and found value in it like it did for me.  

If it did please kindly share.  

To your success,
