Living in Fear Nearly Killed HIm, Courage Changed His Life Forever

Few people know what it’s like to be locked in a prison of fear their entire life. For over 30 years fear drove Patrick’s choices and actions, and he missed out on countless amazing opportunities that life presented him. After contracting a rare form of leukemia he looked the angel of death in the eyes and just as he thought he was going to die, his life began all over. He found courage as a super-power. Curiosity led him to discover the neuroscience behind his life changing transformation; so he interviewed three dozen of the World’s top neuroscientists. Those sessions instilled a new mission in Patrick: share what he learned and help others transform their life from fear-based to confident and courageous. Fear is Fuel breaks down what he learned for you, Patrick wants to teach you courage, confidence and peak performance.
