TAP 191 - Anxiety Afterglow


This week I discuss something that I like to call the Anxiety Afterglow. The moment when you've just leaned into your fear and achieved something significant, just overcome some adversity.  In that moment of brief euphoria we must bookmark that and capture it.  This allows us to build confidence and belief in ourselves.
