Biologically, stress is fear, and research has found that fear is illusion 97% of the time. That means 9.7 times out of 10, your fear is telling you a lie that you’re believing. The What Am I Afraid Of tool helps you identify your fear, dissolve its illusions, and recover the perspective and brain power that can resolve the issue instead of ruminating over it.
