#124. Courage over Fear
How can we choose courage over comfort more often? And why would we want to?
This episode I define courage, talk through why you might want it, discuss how you can live courageous and the hacks that it takes, and also touch on what to do when you have to pick yourself back up. It has specific action points to help you truly live with more courage.
I share a personal note about a dear friend of mine - Nora Guise - at the end of the podcast interview. Nora is a 6-year old fighting for her life and has been accepted into a ground-breaking immunotherapy trial in Houston where they are using CAR-T therapy on a solid tumor cancer. This is the very edge of current cancer treatment. Nora is advancing medicine. This final note some people may find triggering so I want to make it explicit here. If you would like to support Nora and her family, here is the link: Join Nora's Army
