Theme: Fear Less

This event occurred on

Frankfurt am Main, Hessen

What are you afraid of?

At some point in our lives, we all have experienced fear. Fear of failure, loss, change, uncertainty and rejection. Fear is a human instinct, but embracing fear is a super human ability. Too many of us are not living our dreams because we are living our fears.

Imagine how the world would look if we all took a step back from the captivating fear nets and wandered with courage.

In order to fear less, we need to trust ourselves and dare to step out of our comfort zone. Do you want it to hold you back from the things you want and pursue in life or do you want it to motivate you to reevaluate your fears and overcome them? You decide!

What are you actually afraid of? What do you want to have more of in your life?
