Tool: Counter Fear
Be Serious About Risk & Be Ready To Take It On. Love People.
The ability to counter fear is one key to getting through this intense, challenging time in the US. It is a strength and an amplifier. There are a ton of ways to do it. Build resilience – especially personal, financial, family, health, and mental health resilience. Assess the ever-changing risk landscape. Take action to mitigate risk as possible or appropriate. Refine skills to de-escalate, de-fuse, diffuse, and disarm situations. Use humor, solidarity, unity, and spectacle to counter fear, to raise a ruckus, and to de-fuse/diffuse tension and hate. Hold perspective; keep the faith; step back from high-stress situations or news; take breaks or time-outs. Maintain awareness of emotional states, stress levels, and stretched levels of resilience. Follow priorities and plans. Get grounded and anchored. Find strength, resilience, and resolve in your principles and values. Don’t panic. Grow community, teamwork, and connection. Love.
