Podcast Ep. 119 I’m Scared and Doing It Anyway with Lauree Ostrofsky

Lauree-Ostrofsky-Claim-the-Stage-Angela-LussierI’m sure you can think of a time when fear stopped you. Maybe it was when you were thinking about asking for a raise, finding out if that attractive person liked you, writing that book, or taking that vacation to a far away land. Do you ever wish you could go back and do things differently? In today’s episode, I interview Lauree Ostrofsky, a person who helps women leap. Her books are, “Simply Leap: Seven Lessons on Facing Fear and Enjoying the Crap out of Your Life,” and “I’m scared & doing it anyway,” about reinventing her life after being diagnosed with a brain tumor. 

We discuss:

  • The moment Lauree’s life changed and she started realizing the power in her thoughts
  • Tips on how to do things that scare you
  • What kinds of mistakes people make when it comes to taking action when fear is present
  • The one core trait you have to be able to access to do things that scare you
  • How being accommodating to others can get in the way of leading a fearless life
  • And more!
