Have you ever let fear get in your way?
Let's do a thought experiment.
For one day, you're going to be your bravest, most I-don't-give-a-f*ck self.
Think about it for a moment.
How would you think?
What would you say and do?
Chances are, you'd be... different.
Cuz everyone has fear.
And everyone usually lets that fear make up some part of themselves.
That's the part that reminds you to be cautious.
Not stick your neck out too far.
Because, obvi, you might get your head chopped off.
But will you really?
I mean, fear is great in the wild.
It keeps you alive.
But in our plastic world? What does it really do?
Prolly nothin' good.
In fact, I bet that if you went through one day and didn't let fear creep in AT ALL...
You'd probably feel a lot better.
Do a lot more.
And look back on the day and say, see? That wasn't so bad!
Or maybe you'd get your head bitten off by a lion hiding in your bushes...
I doubt it, but ya never know.
But one thing's for sure: There's no way to know unless you try absolute bravery.
And I bet that you'll probably create better results than when you're fearful.
Better, because they'll be more honest.
Your actions will be more pure -- more aligned to who you really are and what you're really trying to make happen.
Fear is the opposite. It's a run-away-now thing when you should be on a charge-the-hill thing.
Just remember one important thing:
Fear isn't something to conquer.
That would imply it's something to begin with.
But it's not. It's nothing. It doesn't exist unless you give it power.
So stop. It's not helping you now.
Try bravery and fearlessness for one day, and see how it makes you feel.
After all, there's nothing to lose but fear itself.
