Mohr shares her thoughts on how to overcome fear. Being your authentic self is daunting and reaching your dreams is anxiety-inducing. She discusses the Hebrew word ‘pachad.’ Pachad is an irrational fear, an imagined worst case scenario. This is a typical fear. However, Mohr also discusses ‘yirah.’ Yirah is less of a fear, and more of a sense of awe. It is a trembling feeling when you sense yourself in the presence of something bigger than you have been in before. In accepting yirah, you can actualize your dreams.
