The Truth About “Giving A Damn”

I was reading a book awhile back by Jules Verne called Robar the Conqueror. It was a pretty decent book. I have to admit that I couldn’t really get into it, but I did learn a lesson or two about conquering fears from that book.


You see, in that book you had a “hero” that was admittedly afraid of everything ended up being the bravest. It was the coward that had helped his friends conquer their foes.


The same happens in real life all the time. Sure people like Steve Jobs, Gandhi, Martin Luther King Jr., and others had demonstrated incredible courage, but it was not without lack of fear. There are many times when they all said that they feared for their lives. (Steve because of natural causes)


But these guys didn’t act in fear. They acted in spite of fear. What they did is fully expressed their fears. They did not try to pretend that it didn’t affect them. They told the world that they were afraid, but because they were strong in their reasoning why they were doing what they were doing, they still persisted and got help along the way.


I want you to consider that today. You’re allowed to be afraid. In fact, you should EMBRACE your fears. Recognize that they are there to let you know that you’re pushing your boundaries and that you’re about to happen upon something great.


Remember like they always say. If it doesn’t scare you, it won’t change you.

P.S. When you start to move forward in life you will find that you will ALWAYS have help. Think of it like the homeless person on the street. He has to sit on the corner and beg all day so that he can eat for one day. Meanwhile, the celebrity can walk into a restaurant and eat for free. It’s all a matter of where your momentum lies.
