Fear vs. Love: Which one drives you?
" Motivation is fire from within, only you can light it." --Anonymous (tweetable)
The biggest assassin of future prosperity isn't lack of information. In an age where most people have access to the internet, we, if anything, are drowning in information.
No, the biggest assassin of anything worth pursuing is fear.
We call it by many names: anxiety, depression, anger, frustration, apathy, but when you widdle them down to their purest form, they are simply fear.
But fear of what?
And love of what for that matter, because if you endeavor to do anything worthwhile, there is "the love of something" involved as well.
Love of impact.
Love of growth.
Love of fame.
Love of adventure.
Love of [fill in the blank]...
The key to finding our stride in life is in recognizing if our actions are ones of fear or of love. The true predictor of long term and genuine success isn't solely in your revenue or net worth, but in whether you move through life from a place of fear or of relentless faith.
The result of continual fear is lack of right action. Either we do nothing at all, fearful of making a mistake, letting someone down or looking foolish (we've all been there) or, we take action, but only follow the advice of the masses.
We don't dare stray into the realm of creativity or possibility, the places where the well worn path cannot possibly take us.
That is where our genius lies and that is the scariest terrain to travel.
But it's oh-so-worth it.

- How to find focus and peace in the journey, even when the road gets rough
- Hear some pretty funny analogies that will make you laugh
- And much more...
