Fear. It’s a Bitch. That nagging little voice in the back of your head saying why you shouldn’t do something. You have it. I have it. We all have it.
Fear is the #1 killer of people who want to be great, who want to be successful. You get rid of fear, what can stop you. Simple enough, right?
If only it were so easy. Things like people’s opinions, our own self doubts, and our circumstances just seem to get in the way. “If only she liked me, then it’d be easy!” “But I’m tiredddd and I don’t feel like it!” “I could never do that or be as good as him/her…”
There are a bunch of different fears that we have, fear of heights, of how people think of us, of sharks, whatever, but what if we could get rid of all those fears, in one big, heart felt swoop? Would you be interested?
It isn’t easy. If you didn’t get that by now, I suggest you come to grips right now before you do. It’s true, we can get over all our fears by getting over this one fear, but it’s the absolute scariest thing that the whole human race is afraid of: Death.
How do we get over all our fears? Get rid of our fear of death. We’re all going to die sometime, and we have no idea when we’re going to die. For some, it’s tomorrow, tonight, even right now people are dying, some justly, some unjustly. But we’re all going to die someday. Our days are numbered, and the sooner you understand that, the more you can come to grips with the world around you.
That girl? She ain’t gonna be there tomorrow, at least in your life, and hell, she might die tomorrow too. If you see this as sad and pointless, try on another shade of glasses for a sec. If you knew when you were going to die, how would you live your life? If you were gonna die next week, how would you treat the next 7 days?
We all treat time as some unlimited source, and value money and other shit (facebook, tv) much higher than it, but it’s the most precious thing we have. We have a limited amount of years on this earth, and it’s all about quality, not quantity.
So how do you adapt this to your every day life? It’s called taking risks. Looking past all the imaginary concepts that us humans have put in our own little society and species, and looking at the super huge big picture. Do something that you’re afraid to do, like approaching a cute girl(or guy) that you fancy, starting a business, or trying a new hobby.
Go all out. Life’s too short to do otherwise. If you have a passion, a vision, and the determination to do something, you’ll find a way to be successful.(Now of course, I’ll go into detail in how you can uncover your passions, vision for your own life, and to maintain motivation on how to do that) Live life to your best abilities, and do everything with an open mind to bettering yourself. It’s not about the destination, but the journey. Ode to the New Year! TIME TO KICK A**.
