Overcoming fear

Print for your fridgePrint for your fridge

One of our biggest fears is that of the 'unknown'.

But weirdly, that's why we compete.  Because we don't know the outcome.  

That's the attraction.

The buzz.

The nerves.

The feeling in the pit of the stomach.

The heavy legs.

The risk of 'loss'.

The fear of losing.

THIS 'fear' we have to embrace.

And how do we do this?

Well looking back to yesterday's post, let's start with 'standing up straight with your shoulders back!'

As Jordan Peterson says,'to stand up straight with your shoulders back is to open yourself up to the world.  You're not in a defensive crouch of a prey animal....but in a 'bring it on manner', not precisely combative, but let's say courageous. And your posture announces that.  It doesn't just announce that to other people, it announces that to yourself, and it can be one of those things that can start a virtuous cycle occurring.'

Just so happens of course that courage is not the absence of fear, but the overcoming of it.

The first few lines of 'everyball' read:

'We are committed to fight for everyball, to run down everyball, and to play everyball with courageous purpose.'

May today be filled with courageous purpose for you.
