Courage and Fear

How courage and fear are 2 sides of the same medal
In my practice, I frequently come across coachees, who experience themselves in some kind of continuous fear. These fears typically center around one of these 3 essential questions, with which all human beings are preoccupied:
• Am I competent?
• Am I a good person?
• Am I worthy of love?
I would like to offer, that courage and fear are not mutually exclusive. They are 2 sides of the same coin:
Courage is the determination and will to still show up and play full on (to that meeting, conference, presentation, interview…) even when we can’t control the outcome, which instills the fear in us. In that context, our exhibited vulnerability, our being exposed with the possibility of being attacked and/or harmed, is a precondition to overcome the fear with courage.
