In life the number one thing holding us back from living our dreams is fear. Fear of losing, fear of the unknown, fear of change. Anything that could possibly deter us off our path, that society has made us think we need to take in order to be successful.
What a lot of us don’t know is that fear does NOT exist. This is just a word that we have linked lower dimensional emotions and feelings to, because that is how we have been conditioned to think by our parents and our teachers.
How many times have you been told that you need to go to school to get good grades to get a good job? That you HAVE to work hard to get what you want in life.
This is called mental programming and it starts from the first day of school. Throughout school teachers are always more interested in you “obeying” the rules. In my school if you did not, you would be sent out of class and in doing so you would miss the lesson. So therefore you are pretty much going to school to learn how to be obedient instead of learning anything that would have any use in your everyday adult life. That is how “school” works instead of focusing on critical thinking,logic, structure and debate, school systems create improper regulations where they will favorite and show more attention and respect to the child who is obedient, turning there back on the disobedient child and stereotyping that child based on there behavior. Essentially creating an assembly line for middle class citizens. Over stressing the responsibility to obey and repeat.
All of these factors have led us to lead a fearful adult life. No matter what anybody say’s I have so many friends and family who are obsessed with being “realistic” in life. I hate that word, what is realism? To go to school, to go to college, to be put in debt before we even start our career and then spend the rest of our lives working to pay back a system that profits of the ignorance of the innocent. A lot of you are working a job you hate, or spending hours studying a subject your not to interested in just because you think that is what you need to do to be “successful.” A lot of you might think you have to put the dreams you have in your life to the back of your mind and have something “realistic” to focus on and put your energy towards.
This is where we all go wrong in life.
– Danger is real, Fear is a choice –
If you ever encounter a situation where you feel fearful , remember that the danger your body is telling you is forthcoming may or may not be real. If it is, by all means, act appropriately. If not, don’t let the fear stop you from moving forward because the threat is not real. It’s a product of your thoughts.
In life we are all going to face different dangers and we will all feel fear. Nothing is impossible, Bob Procter always say’s “what you can hold in your head, you can hold in your hand.” Never hold yourself back in life because you feel fearful and worried that you will not succeed. Fear is a powerful, reactive emotion that also compels people to make decisions quickly – which are less likely to be the best decisions.
It all come’s down to your mindset and how you want to live your life. Do you want to lead a life of hesitation and fear? or do you want to be limitless, confident and courageous?
The choice is your’s and only you can make the decision to better your life, follow your dreams and be the best version of yourself, without letting a fake word get in the way.
Love to wherever you are.
