Good evening everyone!
Happy Halloween to all of you!
Today is Halloween, the day of Ghosts and basically all the things that we fear. So today, let’s talk about Fear.
Fear. Something that we all have. Something that makes us take decisions in a particular way. Something that inhibits us.
We never try to find a way to move ahead; we always try to find a way around our fears. We think, “Let’s take the easier road.”
We mostly fear failure. Why do we stick to conventional jobs like doctors, engineers, lawyers? Why don’t we dare to try something else, even if we’re good at that? It’s because of fear. We fear that the ‘prospect’ isn’t good enough. We fear going against the world. We fear being ‘unsuccessful’. Failure is just our perception of s situation.
Let me tell you something-
It doesn’t matter what you do, conventional or not;
What matters is how you do it.
You can be successful at anything you do, if you’re the best.
The best part though, is that you’ll be happy. You’ll be doing something that you want.
Forget the world, you’re not working for them. You’re working for You. So live like you want to.
And being the best isn’t hard. Put your heart, your mind, your soul into it. If you love doing something, then let your work reflect your love. My mum has been telling me something since I was a kid,
“Even if you sweep the streets, sweep them like no one has ever done it. Sweep it like your life depends on it.
Sweep them so well that even God comes down and admires and says, ‘Wow! That’s how it should be done!'”
It’s not about sweeping. It’s about doing what you are. And doing it the best. Do it so well that you don’t have to call people to be recognised; people will come to you themselves. Let your work speak for itself. And remember what Bruce Lee said,
“Don’t fear failure…
In great attempts, it is glorious even to fail.”
As for other fears, F. D. Roosevelt said,
“The only thing we have to fear is fear itself.”
And it’s so true. We fear everything. From snakes and spiders, to heights and crowds. But it’s pointless. Simply because fear does not exist. It does; but only in our minds. Fear is a fabrication of our mind. Don’t be ruled by anything, especially something that doesn’t even exist.
Danger is real.
Struggle is real.
But Fear is a choice.
Live your life. Don’t be afraid to push yourself. Don’t be afraid to go into the Unknown. Believe in yourself. And live.
Embrace your fears. Be free. Be You.
