Quiz: How Well Do You Handle Fear?
 
At its best, fear is an instinctive, natural ability to help us survive. At its worst, it’s that nagging voice inside our heads that heralds doom and disaster even before we get started on something. Fear keeps us from taking risks that might enrich our life or holds us back from doing some things we need to do. Do we experience new and exciting vistas? Get involved with that person or group? Accomplish something really great? Fear says, “Not on your life.” To discover the role fear plays in your life, complete the following Thriving quiz.

14. I’d rather just stick to what I know, even if it’s not great, than risk change.
 
 Maybe some of these points have triggered the identification of some fears. Acknowledge the fear by sitting with it and then let it go. If needed, book an energy session or a coaching session to dig deeper to see what can change about the fears. Or book a Radionics session to get that much needed boost. Contact Wanda at wanda@wandadavis.ca or 2263749045 for details.
