It’s been a couple weeks since my last post, but I really wanted to put some thought into what I was going to focus on for this one.
It really got me thinking.
What is the cost of happiness? What do we give up in order to be happy, whether it’s in our jobs or in our personal lives. What are we doing to feel ‘safe’ and ‘comfortable’?
Do we sacrifice our happiness for fear? Have we not gone for that job because you were afraid that you weren’t qualified, or not pursued that crush because you were afraid they weren’t interested. Fear is an invention within our minds.
Love and fear.
Jim Carrey, while delivering his commencement speech to the Maharishi University of Management, really hits the nail on the head regarding fear and love.
Take a quick watch, I’ve queued it up for you.
After watching that, think about it. What do you sacrifice for your happiness in life. More on that note, does fear hold you back from becoming your ultimate self?
We have the fear of not having money, fear of not being liked, fear of the unknown. However, what’s the true cost of NOT doing what we love?
Fear is the ultimate killer of people’s dreams and aspirations. You have to push through it and open yourself to being in a place of uncertainty. Now, you certainly have to have a goal in mind, but in that uncertainty, you grow!
When you’re in a state of flux, continue to improve yourself each day, that brings you closer to the person you’re meant to become.
We all want the perfect career that excites us to start each day. Doing what we love ultimately fosters an inner growth that excites us for the next step in our lives.
That’s why I’ve been started to to do this. I love to write, to create, to inspire! This is a means for me to connect with like-minded people. If I can encourage someone to do something that they’ve been thinking about for a while; one of my goals is achieved.
It’s a step in the direction I want to travel in. One where I can choose how I spend my life.
Fear is only a temporary state, only you let it control you, in-turn you have the power to choose love instead.
Love what you do, it will love you back.
Pleasure as always. Thanks for stopping by.
