Sometimes, things just flow. And I don’t even notice that there are risks to what I’m doing. That’s what I want.
“Hello, Mr. Fear! There you are! You and I are one. I embrace and comfort you. There, there. It will be ok, shhhhh. [Swaddling.] OK, I am dropping you off at the pool. Fly away, little guy. What brought about this fear? Past misunderstandings. Well, I can avoid the fear sneaking in by keeping myself busy with the habit of getting on a roll at work before surfing.” 5 months ago
I was ready to give up on this goal. Hang-gliding etc. is not a priority right now. But then I realized that doing work is a risk. Getting in touch with my feelings is a risk. This pink shirt is a risk. I need this kind of risk to feel alive, progressing and free to be authentic. 8 months ago
I made a video for my real estate site and posted it just now—it’s really hard to put yourself out there and risk negativity or criticism… but I did it! Taking a risk feels really good… now on to the next one! 11 months ago
Ive been thinking about this recently and I think I actually do take more risks that I thought, as in most situations I would rather follow things through to see what happens, than not do then and end up wondering ‘what if’ forever.
So I am making headway, I just need to apply this to more aspects of my life. 13 months ago
I find taking risks really really hard to do, as I constantly worry about the worst outcomes of any given situation, and therefore end up talking myself out of potentially fun things. 18 months ago
I am grateful for this site. I seem to review the goals I have just as I need to be reminded of them.
I need to quit rationalizing why certain risks are “frivolous” or “dangerous” or “irresponsible”.
Just do. Or don’t do and keep on at this same, dull, unfulfilled pace. Pick one. 18 months ago
There’s always a “thing” isn’t there? Something to prevent me from knowing if it’s right or wrong, what is the risky choice, to stay and hope that something will come along, or to actually act and see what happens then? Either way I feel like I don’t have control over the situation, but I guess I need to trust my gut and let the feelings I have guide my decisions. 20 months ago
