Would you like to discover some newfound energy and strength? No problem: All you have to do is start letting go of objects, activities and goals that no longer serve you. But that's easier said than done in a culture that's "built on addition rather than subtraction" (as Arianna Huffington puts it).
In this exclusive Becoming Fearless video, Arianna reveals her own life-simplifying secrets and offers advice on how you, too, can overcome what she calls "the anxiety of unmet expectations."
Notes Arianna, "In the same way it feels great to shed the things we no longer use and the junk we inevitably accumulate, it's increasingly liberating to clear out our emotional baggage."
The 10-part Becoming Fearless video series is sponsored by Toyota Corolla and will run through August. Hosted by Arianna Huffington and inspired by her book "On Becoming Fearless," the series will explore how fear affects our lives -- while celebrating the strength, courage and resilience that result from overcoming it (or at least trying to).
During the course of the series, Arianna will be joined by noted individuals -- Martha Stewart, Sherri Shepherd, E! News anchor Giuliana Rancic -- as they examine fearlessness and its impact on love, money, parenting, work, health and beauty.
