- Heart rate rises (adrenaline increase)
- Fight-or-flight response kicks in, you get jittery, break out into a cold sweat (cortisol surge)
- You have tunnel vision, can’t see or think beyond your fear (norepinephrine increase)
Fear is excitement with a negative frame. Excitement is fear with a positive frame.Credit to The Scribe Method by Tucker Max
