Fear is your ally

I've realized that anything worth doing comes with a quite a bit of fear. If you don't feel fear, it's not worth doing. Simple.

So, what do you do with fear? And how do you get to work on the things actually worth doing? How do you create something worthwhile? How do you make your dreams come true? How do you become the person you were meant to be?

The fear becomes your ally. Get to know it. Become close to it. Do not ignore it and especially do not run from it. If you run from it, you run from the best experiences of your life, you run from yourself, you run from your truth and there is no glory in this path.

I want glory, and I presume if you're reading this, you do as well.

So what do you do with fear? You immerse yourself in it. You do exactly the thing that your fear tells you to stay away from. You get really into it. You don't know what you're doing, chances are you fall flat on your face, chances are, you get incredibly dirty, chances are, you make a complete fool of yourself and the world is laughing.

Are they?

No one's laughing. They're too afraid.

Fear. Dig into it. Dig right into it, with all you can, with all you've got, with every ounce of your blood and sweat and tears. Let your heart beat the fear, let your mind tear it apart, let your hands make it into something completely new.

And behold. You did what you came here to do.

Fear. Love it. Treat it like a lover, a best friend, your life force. Make it known, shout it out, put it on a throne, stare it down, and then step up, face to face and watch it diffuse. Now the throne is yours.

Fear. Get used to it. It's not going away. Not without a fight, not without a test, not without a serious challenge. It's there to make you strong. It's there to make you into something worth caring for, worth looking at, worth praising. It's the only thing you've got. The only thing that will keep you going and make you whole.

Without it, you are nothing. And nothing you will be. Nothing but empty, afraid, and dying to become something real.

That real thing is you. That real thing is standing right there beside every fear you've ever had. The only way to become the real thing, is to walk through the fear. That's the way it is. Nothing will change. No amount of wishing or praying or analyzing will take that fear away. Not a thing.

Your only option, is to make it your ally. Let it excite you. Let it make you step up. Let it shape you into something uncommon, something strong, something real.

Fear. It's your ally. Perhaps it's your only ally. Trust it. It's there for a reason and it's not going anywhere. Your choice, your power, is how you use it, what you do with it, how you handle it, and ultimately, what you become and what you have. It's about how you work with it, how you make it into something.

Create a new system. All in dealing with your fears. Become a new dream. All in walking through your fears. Make a new reality. All in shaping your fears.

Work with your fears or they will definitely work with you and that could be something no one wants to look at. No need to suffer. There's a way out. And it's through your fears. Go now. Don't waste time.

Fear is your ally. Get used to it. Believe it. Make something happen. Become something you love. And do it now, before your time has passed. Are you scared of time passing? Good, that's your ally, now get busy.

I'll see you on the other side. I'll look forward to what you've become.
