Olympic National Park in the north-west of the USA is home to three ecosystems: Almost 2,500-metre-high mountains, which I hiked through on snowshoes, rugged rocky coasts, whose wide beaches and colourful tide pools attract big and small explorers, and the northernmost rainforest in the world, a mystical magic world of mosses and trees up to a hundred metres high.

3 Min. You have it. You hate it. You try to avoid it at all costs. It’s fear. Wait a moment, please. Don’t just click away. You might think: ‘Oh no, not now, not with me.’ That’s totally ok – that’s just your well-programmed reaction. But you do not learn anything. You just nurture your fear – instead of dissolving it – and becoming a better person. Allow me a few minutes to explain along 3 points: How can you use fear as an almost inexhaustible source of power.
