Accomplish goals by overcoming fears with 'Fearvana'

CHICAGO (WLS) -- When it comes to achieving your dreams and living a happy life, you'll likely need to overcome fears along your journey. Now a new book, "Fearvana," is helping people transform their fear, stress and anxiety into health, wealth and happiness. Author Akshay Nanavati recovered from PTSD and alcoholism through the concepts in Fearvana. After serving as a corporal in the United States Marines and serving on the front lines in Iraq, Akshay climbed the Himalayas, swam with sharks, and ultimately conquered his biggest fear: marriage.

Nanavati is speaking about his experiences during the Lions Clubs International Centennial Celebration at McCormick Place June 30 - July 4, 2017. He sat down with Eyewitness News to talk about his new book and how you can use your fears to accomplish your goals.
