She also highlights the role of anxiety in fear and how it stems from a disconnection from oneself. Joy shares her insights on building faith and belief in oneself, making decisions, and navigating the space between fear and faith. The conversation concludes with a reminder to focus on what we want and who we want to be.


Fear is a natural part of life, but it should not stop us from pursuing our goals and dreams.
Anxiety is a form of fear that arises from a disconnection from oneself.
Faith is a decision and a belief in oneself and the belief that life is safe.
Making a decision involves committing to a new path and embodying the qualities and behaviors of the desired outcome.
Navigating the space between fear and faith requires reflection, surrendering old patterns, and repeating new behaviors.
