You have to run full force into failure, rejection and defeat. Make these 3 your fuel.
Life works in equillibrium, just like we have day we also have night, good-bad, victory-defeat, up – down, so if you want success you will experience failure at some point. You cant swing the pendulum only in one direction.
To achieve your dreams you have to take the scary risks. A risk that could result in failure, defeat, rejection, sadness and pain. One side of the pendulum is not possible without the other. Reward requires risk. You will risk your ego and your popularity. You will risk critism from your family and the people in your peer group, those you have always wanted to please and be in good graces with.
Darren says billions of people have passed through this planet and never realised their greatness. They never achieved their dreams because they didn’t have the guts to risk the life that they were living for the one that they were capable of and were meant to live.
The life you are living right now may not be all that you wanted to be but it may also not be so bad to force you to wake up and take aggressive action.
You are wallowing in complacency and confort which means you are playing well below your design. Your bank account, your life and current health and relationships are way below where they could be if you dug a little deeper and commited a little more.
If you are honest with yourseelf, you will admit that you are living far below your potential, its almost embarasing. You are capable of magnificent things but you are using your time otherwise.
So cut the fear and claim the dream inside you then be willing to risk your ego to realise it. Stop fearing.
The only thing holding you back from living the best version of yourself and living the life you were meant to live is fear. Fear of failure, fear of rejection, fear of embarassment, fear of success etc. All fears are generated by your ego not by divine capability but by your fearful ego.
The only way to get the pendulum to swing on the side of your true capabilities and enjoy the fruits of victory is to swing the pundulum hard on the opposite side. The side of rejection, fear, potential defeat and other potential fears.
