Do Not Try To Do Everything

Life is not about trying to do everything perfectly. It is about doing something really well. No one expects you to be good at everything. But the world expects you to be really good at something. Permit me to ask you, my friend. What is it that you are really good at? What is that one thing that keeps you up at night? What is that one thing that you never stop talking about? What is it? That thing is your purpose in your life. No matter what it is, you have the power to do it, so just do it. Don’t fear anything. Fear will always be there. Just learn how to play with your fears. Don’t let them stop you. Take action. Play with your fears. Always prepare before you start. Don’t just jump into what you don’t know. Always ask questions. Ask people who have done it before. Don’t let your pride stay in your way. And do not try to be perfect. Because it doesn’t exist. No matter what you are trying to accomplish, always do your best. Work really hard to create your own future. Because the future you are chasing is right in front of you. Do not miss it. Remember that everything is possible. Believe in yourself. You are responsible for your success and failure. You are. Yes, you are.

How To Stop Fear From Controlling You

Tell yourself, “I can do this.” That is how you control fear. You control it by taking action to change things in your life. Fear does not respect talk. Fear respects action. Fear and action cannot coexist. When you take action, fear disappears. According to Alvah Bessie, “Fear is real and there is nothing you can do about it except to keep functioning, keep your hands and legs and body moving, your mind focused on the task at hand.” To get things done, don’t focus on fear. It is there, but do not let it put you in your comfort zone. Do not accept it. Because you are better than your comfort zone. You are here to move, to work, to live, not to get stuck in a rut. Baruch Spinoza said, “Fear cannot be without hope nor hope without fear.” Be hopeful that things will get better. Yes, no one can predict the future. But if you work really hard right now, if you concentrate on the task at hand, you can create your own future. You can do it. Don’t make things hard for yourself. Simplify your life. Make things easy, not difficult. Do what you haven’t done before. Try different things. Do not worry about failure, worry about not doing anything to change your situation. Take on new projects. Meet new people. Stretch your brain. Create thinking time for yourself. Hang out with people who are fearless. When you are always with confident people, your level of confidence will increase. Be around people who are smarter than you are. Above all, “always do what you are afraid to do.”
