How to Be A Fearless Badass

How to Be A FearlessĀ Badass

By Zaron Burnett III

“Nothing in life is to be feared, it is only to be understood. Now is the time to understand more, so that we may fear less.”–Marie Curie (scientific badass)

You know it, I know it, everyone knows it… Fear is your constant companion and life-long enemy. It strips your days of meaning, it robs you of opportunities, and undermines your confidence, as it imagines a future you wouldn’t want to step in. Fear, in a word, is bullshit. Let’s be real about it: It’s also a necessary evil that keeps your ass on this side of the grass. So, the question is: How do you manage Fear?

Well, that’s no easy task. No lie, it is a daily struggle. American writer, Zaron Burnett III, may not be a former-MMA champion or a millionaire life-coach who’s here to teach you how to overcome your fears — no, he’s something else entirely: He’s honest. In this collection of essays, he offers you his casual and candid, humorously skewed view of the world, one that’s guaranteed to make you laugh, as he hands you new tools and gives you the understanding you need to live like a fearless badass.

With chapters like:

How To Make Strangers Want To See You Naked
How To Have Sex So They Never Forget You
How To Love Like You’ll Never Get Hurt
How To Drive Like A Stuntdrivin’ Badass
How To Make Your Boss Look You In The Eye

This is a frank, modern, funny-cause-it’s-true sort of guidebook that shows you how to live like there ain’t no tomorrow and ensures you make it there anyway.

Whether you’re a guy or a gal, maybe it’s time you learn to live like a fearless badass.
