I’ve got a joke for you that I heard the other day
“What’s green, whistles, and hangs on a wall?”
No idea?
“A Salmon!”
“But, salmon aren’t green!” You say?
Well, I painted it green.
“They don’t hang on walls!” You quip.
They certainly do if you nail them up.
“Fish can’t whistle!” You plea.
…Yeah, I just put that in so it wouldn’t be too easy.
This joke had me dying in its simplicity and power to surprise

Almost everyone likes surprises, well…
Good ones at least!

But what do you do when something unexpected comes up and you’re left to deal with the aftermath of a Texas tornado sized problem?

Well one thing that many people do is panic
The fear of the unknown can be powerful to some.

But what really is the unknown, but just a bunch of shit we just make up in our heads anyway? 

The Past, The Present, And The Stories We Tell

I’m gonna get all Metaphysical on your ass for a second here broham.
What is fear, but just a thought, an emotion that really doesn’t even exist?

Your past?
Virtually irrelevant…
Most people can’t even have the same dream twice (and you have more or less full control over that).  Let alone the fact that now you are a constantly changing and evolving person, hopefully, armed with insight from previous experiences.

Your future?
Hasn’t even happened so we have no real way of knowing the probability of the aforementioned (nice word) unknown.

So what can we take away from this little lesson in Quantum Theory?

Fear is really just a terribly lame excuse for inaction

Think about it carebear.
What’s the best way to get rid of your fear? Face it head on right?
So why are you sitting there procrastinating and criticizing others when really all you have to do for yourself is:

ACT

Dude, I get it.
You drank the fearless Kool-Aid.

That fearless garbage that fit pros preach is bullshit!
We’re ALL scared out of our damn minds that our fears are true.
But trust me once you stop and think for one second
You’ll see it is virtually impossible to connect the actual truth
With the lies that eventually become your fears.

Fun Fact: Did you know that Mike Tyson in his hay day hired a “yes man” just to tell him he was awesome all the time? Yeah, he obviously didn’t like bad surprises either.
