Many people go through their entire life and they never take action and step into the unknown because they are afraid of failure. The unknown is a place that your greatest growth lies, that is where your fears lie that have confined you to a mediocre existence. You may currently be held back by fear of what the unknown holds for you. Let me tell you something, do not be afraid to take action into the unknown.
In the unknown is success, you must step forward into the darkness and you shall see that your path is illuminated with light towards the authentic life that you are capable of living. As you step forward you shall wonder and say to yourself ‘Why did I not take action sooner.’ Action is what awakens your mind to the life that you are capable of living, action is what breeds confidence within you, action is what rids your mind of the fears that may have become ingrained as a result of the conditioning of the world. If you do not pay attention to what goes into your mind from the media and the opinions of the crowd, you shall think and act in an average way forever and be resigned to a life of mediocrity.
You must think and act like the 5% in order to live like them, this average mediocre way of thinking and living is an injustice to you as a human being, it shows a lack of awareness and appreciation for oneself to be a sheep who is living a lie, you are capable of more than you know, do not just live the same day over and over again, it is so easy to get caught up living in auto-pilot mode, doing the same things day after day, stop and pause and look ahead and ask yourself, ‘If I continue living like this am I going to be a mediocre individual who is enslaved to someone else’s dream?’
What Can You Do To Tackle The Unknown And Face Your Fears
1. Take Action
Stop being a coward, get into action, too many people are waiting for something to take action and make adjustments to their life, the question is what are you waiting for? The time to act is now, today, right this second. Write down what you want in the form of goals, with a daily plan of action for each one, with deadlines that are nearby so that you take action and do not just decide to procrastinate until next year. So many people say, ‘Oh, I will take action next year on what I want.’ Why are you waiting to live until everything is perfect, get up and take action and make things how you want them to be. You have the power to dictate how you want to live your life, so get rid of the excuses of the masses who think that their boss is their master, you are in charge of your life, so take full responsibility for your life and fashion your life the way you want it to be. The time is now, so get up and take action.
2. Read Books By Dreamers
Read books by people who lived their dreams and by those who are currently living it. New information opens up the mind and makes it awaken to what you are truly capable of achieving. Learn from others who have set their own path, who strived for more, who made a difference, and accomplished more with their lives. Understanding the unknown will make it less daunting for you so that you take action on your dreams.
3. Surround Yourself With Dreamers Who Do
Surround yourself with people who are striving for more, who are chasing their dreams, who are not following the crowd but have decided to stand up and say ‘I can do this’, and ‘I can be the one to live my dreams.’ But most importantly surround yourself with people who hold you to a higher standard and who make you a better person in all aspects of your life. When you surround yourself with others who are living life on a new level you will be driven to take action, as who you spend time with is who you become.
4. Only Think Thoughts Of Success
Many people suffer from defeat not on the battlefield of life, but from the battle within their mind. People give up within themselves before they even try something new, they convince themselves that they don’t have what it takes to succeed. If you engage in this sort of thinking you need to stop it. You need to develop your mindset to the level of a champion who only thinks thoughts of success. You can achieve anything that you set your mind to. Be positive about the outcome and take action.
5. Listen To Motivational Videos
Spend your time listening to motivational videos daily. 30 minutes a day of motivational and inspirational videos will help you to believe in yourself to a higher standard. You can learn a lot from motivational videos, and they will help to transform your mind in a positive way. Motivational videos will help push you out of your comfort zone so that you take action.
6. Daily Imagination Habit
Spend 5-10 minutes a day using your imagination to see yourself living the life of your dreams. By doing this you will start to imprint your subconscious mind to the life that you will be soon living. This daily habit shall help you believe in a greater future for yourself. Imagination is far more important than knowledge. Let your imagination run wild and take you to unknown places.
Take action, action is what will change your life, but most importantly it will transform your mind and you will start to become aware of who you truly can become. Let not your life be one of conformity, strive to be the best that you can be and unleash your greatness upon the world.
