What do you fear? Flying? Water? Electricity? Sharks? Sea Clams? Rip tides? Mortal injury? Spiders? Fledgling flightless birds? Today I observed a small group of undergraduates from the desert face their fears, consciously choosing to get outside their comfort zones to pursue their passions. The only thing more impressive than the wildlife I encountered ( including the black tip shark ), was the personal courage demonstrated throughout the day. These young apprehensive scientist in training showed how you can take your fear, contextually gain control, and turn it into into an exciting life changing experience.
