Where Are You Running?
The story goes that the way that lions hunt illustrates the way we tend to engage with fear.
The older and weaker lions go off and settle across from where the strong and hungry lions are waiting in the tall grass out of sight. They roar loudly with all their might. As the prey rushes away, they run right to the strongest lions.
"Run towards the roar," the old people used to tell the young ones.
Mike Haarlander takes on life with an attitude of running right toward the fear and this podcast will have you examine your relationship to fear.
