“I wish I had the courage to live a life true to myself, not the life others expected of me.”
This is the #1 regret of the dying.
Courage is defined as “the ability to do something that frightens one”…
Then, what are you afraid of?
Everyone is afraid of something. Something that makes you nervous, uneasy, anxious, or simply just “turn off”.
What you need to do is rid yourself of ALL distraction. Make a list of all the things that DO distract you. And destroy them.
Then sit down alone and get comfortable doing nothing- except being with your thoughts.
This skill is becoming more and more valuable, as more and more things are designed to distract us.
They want to keep us in The Matrix. To keep us being broke ass bitches. I won’t allow it.
Instead, read, meditate, journal, dream, strategize. Simply, Be ALONE. Allow yourself to be BORED.
I hear people say all the time “Oh, I have ADD. I can’t.” … ADD is mostly a product of our culture. Do not fall into this bullshit trap.
Only from this controlled state can you hone in on what the universe really wants you to do. What aligns you with you.
Your goal must be to find the things in life that you spend energy on, that deliver MORE energy in return. Net positive.
Once you identify that, share your findings with your closest mentors. Badasses who will push you to double down.
From here, the only direction is up, and you’ll be following your true north.
You must find your true north to avoid the #1 regret of the dying.
Do the work and go get it.
