My guest this week is the wild and wonderful Dr. Kresimir Jug. He is a Doctor of Chiropractic and the host of the Make Your Monday Awesome podcast. In this episode we discuss how through acknowledging fear and taking responsibility for emotions and actions we have everything we need to be awesome. No really, life becomes awe inspiring when we can know what we value and pursue that in a way that is good for ourselves and benefits the community we are a part of… no matter how scary the path may be. We have an honest discussion around honesty and masculinity, accepting what is present to transmute fear into something beneficial, so that we do not one day wake up in a life that was constructed through fearful thoughts and reactions. Paradox is one of the few constants in life and in this episode we breakdown the paradox of where awesome and fear intersect. Enjoy the show!
