241: Face your fears by embracing fear with Fearvana author Akshay Nanavati
241: Face your fears by embracing fear with Fearvana author Akshay Nanavati
If you create a positive relationship with fear, you can accomplish anything. In a capsule, that’s the message Akshay Nanavati, the speaker, author and explorer behind the book Fearvana came to share with me today. He has been featured in Inc. Magazine, Fast Company, Entrepreneur, Forbes and many more high-profile outlets. And get this: the Dalai Lama wrote the foreword to his book after a cold pitch that took four months of confronting fear. Akshay is a veteran of the Iraq war who suffered from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, survivor’s guilt and alcoholism before he learned to confront his greatest fears. By digging deep, he figured out the fears that caused his procrastination and made them an ally. Now he uses fear and guilt to drive his “worthy struggle” of helping others overcome their own fears by embracing them. “If you don’t seek out a worthy struggle, struggle will find you anyway,” Akshay tells me in this episode. And that’s a lot more scary than choosing the fear you face. Have you ever felt like you procrastinate because you have a deep-seeded fear you can’t overcome? This episode’s for you. Have you ever avoided doing something that could lead to a great reward because you were afraid? Akshay can tell you how to move forward with actionable advice. Do you ever wonder what you could become if you could quit being scared of what might or might not happen? Akshay can tell you how to change your mindset and find bliss in your brutal reality.

240: Avoid work disasters with a preflight morning routine
Do you own your mornings, or do your mornings own you? If you race to the door minutes after you get up, you carry chaos into your workday. But if you set up a “preflight morning routine” for your workday filled with clarity and calm, that’s what you’ll carry into the office. Studies show that about 8 percent of aviation disasters could have been averted by following the standard preflight routines prescribed by the Federal Aviation Administration. In this episode, we talk about how you can design a morning routine that will help you cut at least 10 percent of your disaster workdays out of your life. We cover six practices we’ve discovered that get us psyched for the workday and give us the energy to go hard all day. If you find yourself rushing out the door at the last minute to get to work without giving yourself any time to go through a morning routine, this episode is for you. If you find that you make bad decisions at work because you’re fatigued or lack energy, this podcast about owning your mornings will speak to you. And if you want to better control your morning routine to better control your whole day, click play in the player above to get started.
