We have all experienced fear. We know the smell of it and the taste of it. We have felt it as a twinge in the pit of our stomach and as terror that paralyzes. We have ignored it, run from it, grappled with it, and jumped in feet first to deal with it. Some people seem to thrive on it for the thrill of accomplishment. Why? It’s in the answer to the question? “Why did you have to climb Mt. Everest?” and the answer “Because it was there.” Jamail Yogis studied fear —particularly his own fear —and wrote a book about it. It is a book everyone who is held back by fear should read and one we will talk about. You can look forward to an honest, real, in-depth look at a young man’s fear—on a surfboard, in relationships, in various challenges—and learn how to handle your own. Don’t miss this one. Jaimal had a sometimes wild ride and is here to tell us about it.
