Girls first Ski Jump – Facing Fear

Before you play the video – please be aware that the video starts off quietly, and later gets very loud. This is because the girl featured here starts off sounding timid – and later shouts out her delight with her jump.

I was talking with someone today about facing fear, especially in social settings. What popped into my mind was a video that psychologist Reid Wilson, PhD, had mentioned in a training module that I viewed recently. Dr. Wilson mentioned that we are often blocked by our personal dialogue, and the anxiety that it generates.

We have to be willing to [as Wilson says] ‘take the hit’ that anxiety dishes out. Then we find out what we are really capable of doing.

Need help with this? Give a call – let’s talk it over.
