Patrick Sweeney is turning fear on its head to help others live a more fulfilled life.
Patrick is a full-time adventurer. He’s on a mission to help others use fear as fuel. His new book, Fear Is Fuel: The Power to Help You Find Purpose, Passion, and Performance, provides the most effective steps toward rewiring your mind for a healthier longer life based on courage.
The key to unlocking your inner adventurer might not be what you think. Patrick encourages people to embrace fear rather than avoid it in order to grow and make better decisions.
Even though Patrick’s an Olympic level rower, he wasn’t always out chasing hair-raising adventures — he worked as a successful tech entrepreneur until a rare case of leukemia had him fighting for his life.
This milestone gave Patrick a new perspective. Today, he draws on his entrepreneurial background, fighting spirit, and desire to help people in order to live his life to the fullest — and support others to do the same.
