How Storytelling Helps Us Overcome Fear (2) – Paul D. Lowe & Raksha Daryanani

View descriptionShare

On this episode of the World Game-Changers podcast, Paul is joined by returning guest Raksha Daryanani to continue their conversation about how storytelling can help us overcome fear.


  • I grew up being told I was an extrovert but, as I grew older, I realized that’s not true because when I’m around people all the time I get exhausted.
  • Introverts and extroverts can both be great public speakers, it all comes down to what energizes you and how much time you need to decompress.
  • We don’t decompress, rest, take time for ourselves enough, and that’s becoming increasingly important in the digital age that we live in because more of us are working from home. The brain is not getting rest.
  • Some communities are more open, engaging, supportive when you are your true self, but others shy away from that and are more closed or reserved. It’s good to assess what a culture is like and whether you can fit in and be yourself, if not are you OK with that? It can be quite hard to mask who you are every day.

‘I would like to inject more fun, I often thing I’m a bit serious in my writing, I think starting off on a lighten note engages the reader in your story. It’s a real art to make someone laugh with your writing'.

‘If we someone else opening up we soften. These moments where we are our true, whole selves and not putting up any façade are precious and relatable'.

‘There’s no way you can guarantee that a person wrote something in a certain tone if you’re just reading written text'.

‘When you hear someone tell you something remember there’s another side to it if there’s someone else involved. Don’t make up your mind too fast'.

Raksha Daryanani is a freelance writer and storyteller known for her stories, long-form essays, poetry and articles with wit, warmth, and wisdom. Raksha's writing has been featured in global magazines.

She shares... "The first thing we remember as a child is usually a story we were told by someone who loved us. I know mine is, and that’s why I’m here to light up the world by writing and telling powerful stories. Stories that teach us more about the people around us, and the communities we live in. Stories that can change our minds. Stories that make us more aware of our human nature, our roots and our growth. Those are the stories that my readers appreciate and re-share the most.


Paul has made a remarkable transformation from existing for many years in dark, desperate despair; to now living a really healthy, happy and fulfilling life.

From an early age, he was in the vice-like clutches of the demon drink and constantly embroiled within a dark cocktail of toxic beliefs, self-hate and destructive violence.

Along with his empathetic and dedicated team of world-class coaches and mentors, Paul’s purpose is deeply transformational:

Developing World Game-Changers…
He is extremely passionate about helping others to find their purpose, have a voice and ultimately, make a real difference.  

This has been built on a long and distinguished history of heart-centred coaching and mentoring.  He has also been responsible for raising significant amounts of funds for many charities and good causes around the world; positively impacting and inspiring thousands of children – mainly from challenging backgrounds – within the UK & worldwide.

Paul also helps others to get their own inspirational messages and stories out into the world; as well as offering support to many charitable organisations, in their development & fund-raising.
