    Nice interview, Joe. I will be reading this book closely when it arrives. Robert is a colleague of mine whom I highly respect – I appreciate how he practices what he preaches (e.g., courage and integrity) – he puts himself out there and always challenges himself (and others). This can be seen in his early work traveling the globe as he did pioneering research to help establish the cross-cultural validity of the 24 VIA character strengths, it is clear in how he delivers live presentations, and it is clear in his research approach to examine and write about info from multiple domains, even those he’s unfamiliar with.

    I believe courage is important, but at the same time I believe it is good to let go of as much of the fears, doubts and insecurities as well. Letting go of these things your holding onto will allow you to more naturally be courageous and act how you want to act instead of relying on past programming that isn’t serving you.

    Though this still takes some courage to explore this ‘stuff’ inside and to face it and let it go.

    Both are mutually beneficial!

    I agree it is important to eliminate doubt and fears first as these are what keep us from using our full potential. I love the work of NLP in this area. Attracting more pain to actually not reaching our dreams and attracting pleasure to achieving it is a great motivator.
