This episode of The Purpose Project is a follow-up to my bonus show about fear.  I elaborate on the 3 main types of fears: External, Internal and Subconscious.  I also discuss “Limiting Beliefs” and how beliefs are not facts.  By removing these irrational beliefs, you will in turn eliminate fears.  I give a systematic way to confront your fears by using desensitization.
