Life Is Meant To Be Lived

"The presence of fear does not mean you have no belief in yourself. Fear visits everyone. But make your fear a visitor and not a resident."


How do you develop it?

You boldly go where others won’t.

You consistently lean into the things that you’re afraid of doing and prove to yourself that your dreams are bigger and more important than any fear.

What is it that compels us to be fearful, to think and act like part of the herd, to live an entire lifetime with very little to show for it?

For the majority of us…it’s the desire for safety, refuge, security — in short, the inclination to play it safe and remain in the comfort zone.

But the life you want, the truly magical life that you want to experience…will only happen once you face your fears and actively work to get outside your comfort zone.

Always has. Always will.

Fear is unworthy of your companionship…it’s an unwanted visitor who’s overstayed his welcome…and your ultimate goal is to face it, to conquer it and use it as the trigger for unleashing your greatness.

The human being who does not wish to belong to the masses, who dares to show the world what he is capable of creating, must cease being controlled and manipulated by fear.

He must resist the gravitational pull of the comfort zone and instead follow his conscience, which shouts at him: Let your light shine!

Fear is never a reason for quitting or for second guessing yourself.

It’s only a cowardly excuse for those unwilling to face their doubts, insecurities, and their mental boogie man.

Therefore, your first duty in rising to meet a challenge is to conquer fear and the mental resistance it brings along with it.

You must choose to get rid of it or any hope, dream or goal you are considering will wind up being DOA — Dead On Arrival.

"Fear imprisons, faith liberates; fear paralyzes, faith empowers; fear disheartens, faith encourages; fear sickens, faith heals."


What is fear costing you?

What are the consequences of keeping your dreams on hold?

What is the impact on your life when you run from rather than toward a challenge?

Let’s look at a few of the many consequences associated with quitting, being underemployed, remaining fearful, and not rising to meet the demands of a challenge:

1. Diminished Sense of Self-Worth and Personal Value

Eventually you come to think of yourself as “the kind of person” who is undeserving of success.

When you begin to lose faith in yourself, it leads to a downward spiral of psychological devastation that is extremely difficult to overcome.

2. Perpetuation of Pain

Avoiding a challenge and running from your fears only achieves self-sabotage and the perpetuation of pain, which leads to a cycle of failure and a lifetime of disappointment.

Failure’s high price is commonly imposed through bankruptcy, depression, unemployment, poor grades, stress, and other forms of physical and psychological pain.

3. Character Assassination

By allowing fear to control your life, you will serve as a disturbing example of wasted talent, of someone who chose fear over courage.

Your life will be viewed as the sad consequence of neglect, excuse-making, self-pity, poor character, lack of direction, and a courage deficit.

4. Development of a Quitter Reputation

Quitting is a habit…the path of least resistance.

Facing your fears requires that you to increase your level of resistance and tolerance to pain, inconvenience, and sacrifice.

Once you develop a quitter reputation, your options become limited, your reputation becomes questionable, and your future is in serious jeopardy.

5. Your Become a Traitor

By refusing to face your fears, you by default choose to betray, openly resist and rebel against opportunity and the chance for a better life.

In effect, you become your own worst enemy, a real life Benedict Arnold, your very own Judas Iscariot as the greatest from of betrayal is betrayal of oneself.

Fear of any type is a temperamental beast. It’s built for a fight, works to mentally wear your down and will not be vanquished quickly nor easily.

That’s why if you’re ever going to find your greatness…you’ve got to expose yourself ruthlessly to that cold hand of death and feel the fear and anxiety that’s associated with that without trying to run from it.

Doing so will exhaust you, but it will grow you.

Once you’ve confronted your mental boogie man…you’ll come to understand that everything you want to be, do and have in life will only be found on the other side of fear.

That’s a good thing!
