So you want to be a fearless man, but in times of crises many people freeze up and find themselves unable to move or do anything.
Their minds get overtaken by the poison of fear.
Important tasks, goals, and dreams get forgotten or put on hold.
A whole list of excuses come out and people lie to themselves about the reasons why they are not getting anything done.
I can't do it now because of this health crisis in my country.
I can't do it now because my car is broken.
I can't do it now because I don't have the money.
I can't do it now because I feel distracted.
I can't do it now because I find it hard to focus.
I can't do it now because I don't have the right software.
I can't do it now.
There are a thousand other excuses I can't list here.
But you have probably heard them all.
Let's stop fooling ourselves and get to the truth.
So over you is the greatest enemy a man can have and that is fear. I know some of you are afraid to listen to the truth- you have been raised on fear and lies. But I am going to preach to you the truth until you are free of that fear.
“[I]n nooks all over the earth sit men who are waiting, scarcely knowing in what way they are waiting, much less that they are waiting in vain. Occasionally the call that awakens– that accident which gives the “permission to act — comes too late, when the best youth and strength for action has already been used up by sitting still; and many have found to their horror when they ‘leaped up’ that their limbs had gone to sleep and their spirit had become to heavy. ‘It is too late,’ they said to themselves, having lost their faith in themselves and henceforth forever useless.”
– Friedrich Nietzsche
The Human Mind
The human mind has the potential for great power that most humans never discover.
The powers sometimes get discovered when we face big obstacles.
Powers like high levels of focus, energy, and ingenuity.
We have the ability to tap into these powers if we choose to do so.
But of course you first have to be aware that they exist.
The problem is that we live in a world that puts limitations on the power of the mind.
Instead most of society depends on material sources to solve their problems.
We turn to money, technology and “connections” to get us out of the problems we face.
So unfortunately we put limits on the power of the mind.
And once you put limits on the power of the mind it becomes a way of life.
And it becomes a reality that many accept as just the way things are.
This is also sometimes referred to as the fixed mindset.
The problem with this limited thinking or fixed mindset is that it puts us into a box.
This box lets us limit our whole reality and lets opportunity pass us by.
What is opportunity?
In simple terms it's something out there in the world that will make our lives better.
And according to mainstream thinking its something you can only get if it comes your way.
According to this way of thinking it's only yours if you happen to be there at the right place at the right time.
It also depends on you having the right skills and knowledge.
Unfortunately, most people think this way.
And even worse is that they think only a few of these opportunities exist.
They also think that if you were unlucky and missed the opportunity then it's game over.
This way of thinking is limiting and its also the reason why only 2% of the world's population control most of the wealth in the world.
It's not because all of the 2 percent is very different than most people.
It's just that they have a different mindset.
They look at the world in a different way.
The problem that most people have with the fixed mindset is that their way of thinking makes them dependent on outside forces.
They have limited control over it.
The root of this problem is that their thinking has a foundation of fear.
Their whole way of thinking is fearful in nature.
Fear is not dynamic, it is passive and this limits people.
It puts your mind in a cage and limits the mind to think small.
The truth is this:
The human mind is so powerful that any situation can be turned into a potential tool for expansion and power.
Like I mentioned before some people will taste the potential power in times of crisis.
But unfortunately for many, they will in times of crisis totally give over to fear and crawl into a corner.
The Opportunist Mind Of The Fearless Man
When you adopt a growth mindset in life you become an opportunist.
When you are an opportunist you still see fear but you ignore it and move forward despite fear. Fear is not your default state.
When you are an opportunist your foundation is built on courage which gives you faith that you can be victorious in any situation.
When you are an opportunist you start seeing opportunities in any situation.
You reframe events to turn them into your favor.
You become an Opportunist.
Make the Most Of What You Have.
Most of us start complaining when we face challenging times.
We start complaining and start to make excuses:
I don't have a laptop.
I don't have enough money.
I don't have the new software.
I don't have enough knowledge.
I don't have?
We basically say we don't have enough resources.
But the truth is we mostly only have just one problem.
We are not resourceful enough.
When you are in a situation where you feel you have limited resources it makes you dependent on things that are outside your control.
The reality is you are ignoring your most powerful weapon.
And that is your creative mind.
Take whatever you have and make it work.
Think of new ways to use what you have to get what you want.
Make it happen!
All Obstacles Must Become Opportunities.
Start approaching any obstacle as tools of power.
The Japanese martial art of Aikido uses the energy of the opponent to defeat it.
This is the same mindset you should have.
Take the energy of the obstacle and turn it into your advantage.
For example, if your opponent is big and strong then you are fast and agile.
If your opposition has more money you will be forced to be more creative.
Your mind has the ability to take obstacle energy and turn it into positive energy for your objectives.
Start Moving Before You Are Ready.
Most people make excuses about why they are not doing something.
They would say they are not ready because:
I'm too young.
I'm too heavy.
I'm too unprepared.
If you want to get those opportunities in life then you need to move now.
Start working towards it now.
Once you stop listening to fear and start taking action you will find the hidden potential you thought you didn't have.
You will realize you are ready and you will find a way to make it happen.
So many people let massive opportunities go to waste because they use “I'm not ready” as a buffer.
It's an excuse that is riddled with fear.
Step through that fear and start taking action now even if you think you not ready.
Want to start a business? Start now.
Want to write a book. Start now.
Want to travel the world? Start now.
Want to be a doctor? Start preparing now.
Want to be an actor? Start preparing now.
Want to join Special Operations? Start preparing now.
Want to become better with women and dating? Start learning now.
Want to change your life? Do it now.
Want to ? Do it now!
The Mind Is Everything.
“In war, moral power is to physical as three parts out of four.”-Napoleon Bonaparte
Napoleon was right!!
The mindset and motivation you bring into any battle are way more powerful than anything material.
This is the key to success in life.
Most look outside themselves for the keys to success in life.
But they miss the most important thing.
And that is their own mindset.
If you are highly motivated and you have a powerful masculine mindset then you will be on your road to success.
But if you choose a fixed mindset that is built on fear then you will find a struggle that cannot be overcome.
Life is a series of choices.
Building a powerful mindset is a choice.
You can do anything in life if you start using the most powerful tool in the world.
The massive potential of the human mind.
So Step Up.
Start working on your mind.
Do it now.
Move before you are ready and become a fearless man.
Until next time my brothers.
