Tony Blauer: Understanding Fear And Changing Your Mindset So You Can Conquer Your Fears

The mind can easily play tricks on us.

We can master our craft in private, but really screw it up in public.

There are also a lot of us living our lives in fear – afraid to ask a girl out, fearful to ask for a raise, afraid of quitting a job to try something new, or a number of other fears.

In this episode of The Power To Change, we have a modern day warrior and self-defense expert who will teach you how to understand your fears and how you can change your mindset so you can conquer your fears.
