Fear is one of our biggest obstacles. It’s often times the thing that holds us back, especially as creatives. It’s easy to take the safe road in life, but when we go down that path we never get to challenge ourselves.

Progress is about pushing our own boundaries. Fear is perfectly natural, yet it’s something we’ve been taught to suppress. We get mad at ourselves, call ourselves a chicken, and beat ourselves up for feeling that way. Instead we should embrace it. Accept it. Even encourage it. Being afraid lets us know we are on the right path, because it means we are working towards something we care about.

On this episode of Creative Warriors we are joined by Akshay Nanavati. Akshay is an ex-marine, who served 6 years and came back with PTSD. After severe depression and suicidal thoughts he began to explore the human brain and what makes us truly happy. His biggest discovery was that our fears are what really make us feel the most fulfilled.

Download this episode today and learn how you can begin to push past your fears and start achieving the success and happiness you really want.


“We all have our own worthy struggle.” -Akshay Nanavati
