My Love Affair with Fear
How Fear Enabled Me to Become Who I Was Created to Be
Brad’s life has been tested —his body ravaged by disease, his resilience tested with the loss of two sons, and his life spared during death-defying moments. As tough as these moments have been, he shares his insights into ‘dancing with fear’. Brad believes leaning into our personal challenges shapes stronger individuals. His epic escapades have given him an awareness of his true self – who he really is; what his priorities are; validating the limits of his skill sets, mental fortitude, and grit. Brad’s storytelling incorporates his remarkable talent for sharing thoughts, sights, sounds, and scents while learning to utilize that gut-wrenching feeling to his advantage by stepping into adventures with fear as a partner - the greatest tool for personal discovery, growth, and becoming all we’ve been created to be.
Join Brad as he decides which of two drowning students to save; clings to a coral wall while stalked by a deadly predator; plunges down a mountain on the toe of an avalanche; receives the verdict: “You’ve been diagnosed with cancer, again”.
When you finish this memoir, you’ll not only be entertained, but inspired by practical strategies encouraging you to explore and discover how to use fear as your ally. “I can’t push aside my fear; it’s omnipresent. Managing my fear enables me to be more alive - to live a fuller and richer life.”
