213: Walking Through Fear with Michelle Poler

The Adult Chair

With everything going on the world the last few months, fear has been on all of our minds recently. Though this fear is very real, it’s also related to events happening outside of we can’t fully control.

But we also all have deeper emotional fears that aren’t related to what is going on in the world and are more constant: fear of vulnerability, fear of rejection, fear of being trapped, etc. They come from inside us, and they hold us back from living the life we really want to live.

What if you could train yourself to face your fears and become more than you ever thought possible in life? 

Today’s guest, Michelle Poler, asked herself that same question and embarked on a life-changing experiment where she faced a new fear every day for 100 days. Her project went viral, and she now travels the world speaking and writing about how to walk through fear and tap into your fullest potential. 

In this episode, she shares her incredible journey, what she learned through her experiment and her tips for overcoming fear in everyday life.

Listen to discover:

  • Why our fears limit us and keep us from becoming who we’re meant to be
  • How to practice courage and build confidence
  • How to face the unknown and embrace change
  • Reframing failure and choosing to see opportunity instead
  • Finding the best, even in the worst-case scenario

When we feel fear in our bodies, most of us take that as a sign to stop what we’re doing or run in the other direction. But when we push through that fear, we discover a world of potential, dreams and opportunities. 

Michelle’s story and perspective on life is SO inspiring, and I know you will walk away from this episode with fresh energy to say “no” to fear and “yes” to life!

“When you radically accept what’s happening, you open new doors.” - Michelle Poler

“Don’t ask yourself, ‘What’s the worst thing that could happen?’ Ask yourself ‘What’s the best thing that could happen?’” - Michelle Poler

“The real enemy of success is not failure; it’s comfort.” - Michelle Poler

My guest today is Michelle Poler. While doing her Masters in Branding back in 2015, Michelle started a project where she would conquer 100 fears in 100 days. This Masters project turned into a global movement that impacted millions of people and received coverage on The NBC Today Show, Fox News, CBS, CNN, to name a few.

Since that project, Michelle now travels the world speaking to people at companies such as Google, Facebook, LinkedIn, Netflix, Microsoft, P&G, Toyota, Coca-Cola, and many more, about getting out of their comfort zone. 

Michelle’s first book, Hello Fears, is coming out on May 5, and teaches readers how to create their own 100 days of fear project.

In this chat, we cover:

  • How her life as a keynote speaker has changed dramatically post-COVID
  • How she reacted when her diary was literally wiped of all speaking events and work
  • The detail Michelle goes into when constructing and improving her keynote speeches
  • How she keeps her keynote speeches fresh for every audience
