The Enemy is Fear, We Think it’s Hate, But, it’s Fear

Buddy Media CEO Michael Lazerow Makes Unforgettable Video Following Salesforce Acquisition (Huff Post)

This week, Buddy Media, a social enterprise software company, was acquired by cloud computing giant for a staggering $689 million.

Shortly after he signed the deal, Buddy Media CEO Michael Lazerow made this inspiring YouTube video. Lazerow, who was born with a serious heart defect had a singular message to deliver: learn to live without fear.

Inspired by Ben Breedlove, a young man with hypertropic cardiomyopathy who shared his emotional but uplifting story in a wordless viral video, Lazerow uses an iPad to poignantly convey his powerful message.

When he was 18-months-old, Lazerow miraculously survived heart failure. Then at 19, he had to have an emergency heart valve replacement after his blood pressure fell to zero.

He explained in the video that the near-death experience changed his life entirely, helping him realize that he needed to start living fearlessly.

Lazerow, considered a thought leader on digital media, is a self-described “serial entrepreneur.” Having already started four successful companies, he was named Ernst and Young Entrepreneur Of The Year in the New York region for 2011.

“If you live without fear, anything is possible,” wrote Lazerow. “Is fear holding you back?”

The video is dedicated to Breedlove, who died shortly after publishing his video, as well as Jennifer Goodman Linn, the founder of who died last year after a long battle with cancer.


The Way I See It:

If we trace any negative emotion, any failure and any set back it will always always lead us to something we fear. To be honest YES my fear is holding me back….but Recognizing the presence of fear allows me to make conscious decisions to change it. YES I take the decision to change my fear everyday. I win sometimes and I feel like a free woman…I am getting better and better with every win. They say it takes energy to resist fear BUT I say Resisting fear strengthens it.  It takes a decision to surrender, trust, set the intention and most importantly believing that nothing bad happens and we do have a choice …..I choose to be fearless discovering my limitless potential. CHOOSE TO BE FREE…

Love & Light
