Overcoming fear and taking action (Dr. John Demartini)

Dr. John Demartini is a world-renowned specialist in human behaviour, a researcher, author and global educator. In episode 2 of Thrive with ‘DrD’, Dorianne Weil speaks to him about overcoming fear and taking action.
Points they cover:
• Have you ever had brilliant ideas but never quite gotten around to taking action?
• Ever set goals for the coming months, only to worry about everything that could possibly go wrong and then found yourself trapped in your own inertia?
• Ever wondered what it is EXACTLY that holds you back from taking action? And where it comes from?
Dr Demartini will go through each and every one of the mechanisms that can lead you to question, hesitate and ultimately stop doing something amazing with your life.
He will share his tried and tested practical strategies on how to:
• Work out WHY each fear is there and where it originates from;
• What constructive FEEDBACK each fear is giving you; and
• How to ultimately BREAK THROUGH the blocks and fears that are keeping you from taking action!
They also talk about falling in love: lust versus love - and how to achieve a fulfilling relationship.
