Module 5 

What are your rational and irrational fears? Do you know the difference?

  • Understand rational and irrational fears

When it comes to your dream you are the boss which means you are a leader.


The first step to becoming a leader of any kind is to be a leader of yourself. If you don’t know what you want to accomplish, you can not tell anybody else what to do.

Being brave does not mean you aren’t scared. Being brave means you can be scared as heck but do what you need to do anyway.
Ask yourself, “What’s the worst thing that can happen?”

Then ask yourself, “How can I keep that from happening but still do what I need to do?”

Fear is the enemy of your dream and the enemy is never going to go away completely so we have learn how to beat it consistently.


What are your rational and irrational fears? Do you know the difference?

Write down a big fear. Like a if I offered you a million dollars you’re not doing it.

Write down a secondary fear. Not like the million dollar fear but you don’t like it. its a fear. 

Ok lets chat what you big fear and why? 
What did we learn today? Fears are real, but will they kill you? Or will they just kill your dream?  Will they stop you from being the best you that you can be? Ask yourself the question, is this a rational or irrational fear? And be ready to accept the answer.

Point: The big fear probably won’t kill you, but it’s the small ones that will steal your joy. Exercise: Workbook page 10
Intro to public speaking: Students complete page 10 exercise in front of the group.

One of humanities biggest fears is public speaking. But here are two pieces of absolute truth. 

1. Every leader in all of human history that ever accomplished anything important had one thing in common. They were all great communicators.

2. No matter what your dream is, at some point you are going to have to ask for what you want. 
Homework: Prepare a 30 second talk on any topic for next class. 

Suggestion for Tips & Tricks videos:

As you watch, you might want to take short notes and jot down anything that sticks out to you or that you think might be helpful to you in pursuing your dream.
for example,  if the person says something like, "There is no substitute for putting in the time." 
You might want to write that down.

If you do this, by the end of the year you will have a playbook of tools that successful people have used to achieve their dreams. Tools that you will be able to use to achieve yours.
