It’s a scary world out there alright. Downright frightening.

There are a lot of reasons to be fearful for sure, fear of failure, fear of the unknown, fear of being found foolish, or fear of rejection. ALL common; ALL not valid.

Oh well sure, you may fail or look foolish, that could happen. It just doesn’t matter.  It just doesn’t. 

You should, however, be fearful of not finding your path, your purpose. Yep, it’s a darn crazy world out there, one full of distractions and temptations all calling your name, telling you that you’re not good enough, smart enough, or brave enough to do what you know you need to do. 

It’s that truth you should be fearful of, missing what you’re called to do, what you’re made to do. 

At the end of the day, you will be remembered for what you did. Not what you didn’t do. 

Your ability to influence the world around you, to do something cool, beautiful, amazing, or just plain fun, is a direct reflection on your ability to move past the fears that hold you back, the fears that hold most back. 

Look your fears in the eye, and say “back off sucka, you’re not going to take my dreams this time.” then press on. 

Press on right past the fears, distractions, and haters out there and do what you know you’re meant to do, do what you know you need to do; prove us all wrong. 

While you’re at it, finding that path just for you, please take care, it’s  a crazy world out there!

      Such a good question, and not an easy one to answer either. Have you spent serious time thinking through what you love. What are the things that you love doing, the things that give you energy just by actually doing them? I would start there, don’t expect a flash of lightning, and don’t copy someone else’s "really cool thing"
