The two things I value pretty much over all else are EXPERIENCE and CONTRIBUTION.
Experience, as in doing as many things with this short time you have as you can, and contribution, as in creating a legacy or body of work that leaves the world a little bit better off than when you found it.
The only thing holding you back from getting out there really is fear.
Fear to get out there and start experimenting, failing, testing, winning and experiencing all the highs and lows that go with it.
It’s pretty scary. But what other option is there? Being boring?
I want to share with you a story from my past week when I was on that boat doing my snorkel tour.
This is a story I sent to my daily email people so if you’re not on it and want to hear from me during the week go here.
Daily Email Story:
You know that old saying…
What would you do if you weren’t afraid?
Got a BIG realtime lesson in this today.
Alright so several hours ago I checked off one of the things on my list of ultimate rad things to do: snorkel the Great Barrier Reef.
Yes. It was the shizzle. Everything I wanted it to be and more.
ANYWAY LESSON TIME:
There was a guy from Euro somewhere who, at the edge of the boat – FREAKED OUT and clinged for his life at the edge. Not daring to venture out and see all the amazing fish, coral and other world.
I feel like a really bad person for this but at first I thought: “What the hell are you doing you scared little girl – get the f**k out in the water!”
But instead I just dived in and decided to worry about myself – the guides were giving him help.
As I ventured further and further away from the boat in pure other-worldy heaven – taking in the brain coral, big ass clams, nemo fish in dancing purple and red coral, big ass fish, etc…
I thought LOOK AT ALL THE AMAZING THIS GUY IS MISSING OUT ON!
Just because he’s too scared to venture away from the boat.
So he is an extreme case of fear but then I thought about what boats I’m still clinging too? (as a metaphor).
What boats are YOU still clinging to?
Do you need to venture out into unknown waters and discover
See most people think that venturing away from the boat will result in failure and getting eaten by a massive shark.
The media and society would like you to think that. You’re safe if your scared. You can be controlled if you’re scared.
So as I sit here exhausted from my day in the ocean, I’m making a promise to myself: venture further into the scary unknown waters.
I’d like you to make this promise to me too. If you’re scared on starting a freedom business, asking out that girl you think is cute, or getting in great physical shape…
Then it’s time to let go of the boat.
EXPERIENCE IS EVERYTHING.
(and I hope I have contributed to you today)
Quote Of The Day: “The whole secret of existence is to have no fear. Never fear what will become of you, depend on no one. Only the moment you reject all help are you freed.”
