I had this huge fear of public speaking, and it was so scary that I left college, due to the fact that I was broke and that I literally would throw up before I would go out before any crowds.
So I had to make this decision: okay, I can continue singing Christmas carols for money, or I can face my fears and follow my dreams.
People would ask me: what’s your secret, how do you face your fear, how do you conquer it? By running right toward it.
I learned about the emotional guidance system. When you feel that thing that’s fearful, that is exactly what you’re supposed to do, and on the other side of that is your special purpose. It is what you’re supposed to be doing in life.
