Everyone is told that the best way to move past their fears is to conquer them. According to Mountain Climber, Adventurer, and Entrepreneur Jamie Clarke, however, you shouldn’t conquer your fears, but instead use them as motivation, both in and outside of business.

Jamie, who has been on the side of mountains when things start to go bad, knows that a healthy fear keeps the team alive. According to Jamie “a little bit of fear constantly? That’s good.”
