A note to future self:
Immediately seek out and do the thing that scares you. The moment you notice you are afraid of something, seek it out, and destroy it.
Fear spreads like cancer. It is disease of the heart and mind. If you remain fearful of something, you will always feel small. You will always feel conquered. You will always feel held back.
Immediately seek out your fears and conquer them. Immediately.
Fear is not real. And that’s what you must prove to yourself, every time. When you seek out your fears and do the thing that scares you, you enjoy one of the most transcendent experiences a human can undergo. It is one of the rare occasions where instantaneous growth and healing occurs.
Doing that thing which scares you is the greatest experience you’ll ever have. It is medication like no other.
Seek out the thing that scares you and demolish the illusion it imprints on your mind. Unplug the projector. See that it’s not real. See that the fear was irrational. All fear is.
When you detect you are afraid of something, immediately conquer it. Waste no time. Waste not a day. Every second you delay is a thousand years of internal cancerous growth. Some people will let a fearful thought linger and fester in their mind for years, at which point, they become so comfortable with their tumorous protrusion, that they begin fearing the eradication of the fear itself. It becomes all they know.
The longer you wait, the harder it will be.
Seek out the thing that scares you, and do it. Immediately.
Afraid of public speaking? Immediately seek out a platform to give a public speech. Immediately. It will be the greatest experience of your life.
Fearful of reaching out or connecting with this or that person? Immediately seek them out and have a conversation. Immediately. It will be the greatest experience of your life.
Fearful of being spontaneous or of imperfection? Immediately seek out an imperfect performance and publish it. Immediately. It will be the greatest experience of your life.
When something scares you, do not let it conquer you. Do not let it overrun your life. Because make no mistake about it: it absolutely intends to, and will succeed 99.999% of the time. Immediately seek out the thing that scares you and do it. Conquer it before it conquers you. It will be the greatest experience of your life.
