Fear is a Roller Coaster that you Need to Ride

One of the biggest reasons that people don’t go after their dreams is due to fear.

Fear of the unknown.

Fear of change.

Fear of stepping out of their comfort zone.

Fear of doing something different.

Sometimes, even fear of success.

 

Fear is False Evidence Appearing Real.

 

Our minds are so powerful, so much so that we can talk ourselves into something and we can talk ourselves out of something.

We always have a choice, choosing to find a thousand reasons why we shouldn’t do something or choosing to listen to a thousand good reasons why we should do something.

Either way, our minds will find reasons as to support our choice.

 

Myself and my partner John Paul ventured out to Six Flags Discovery Kingdom yesterday for my 35th Birthday Aussie celebration.

Living in the States, it’s always fun being able to celebrate my Aussie Birthday and my US Birthday.

If you’re not familiar with Six Flags it is renowned for it’s wild roller coaster rides.

John Paul and I have always been dare devils, living on the edge, so spending my birthday at this park was absolutely perfect!

Not only roller coasters but also plenty of beautiful animals to see and come up close and personal with.

We had an absolute ball riding a huge selection of unbelievably fun roller coasters.

Twisting, turning, speeding upside down and inside out!

Of course, I was a little scared before I stepped onto each ride, maybe even a little nervous and anxious.

This did not stop me because I knew how much fun I was going to have during the ride and the massive adrenaline that was going to rush through my body as an end result.

I let my excitement take over.

John Paul and I were fascinated watching people’s faces before they stepped onto the rides and then afterwards when they were done.

Expressions of concern and worry resulting in expressions of excitement and happiness.

You see, when you think about the end result and how something is going to make you feel, focusing on that is going to allow you to face your fear and do it anyway.

 

This experience reminds me of life in general.

Fear is a roller coaster that you need to ride.

 

It is going to be filled with twists, turns, upside down’s and inside outs.

When we stay the course, getting out of our own way, we will get to the end result that we are craving for.

I have always been a person that has focused on how I was going to feel after I took action and did something I wanted to do.

Because of this I have been venturing on wild rides from a very early age and even Bungy jumping from the tallest tower in the world to Bungy from.

If I had let the fear, nervousness and anxiety control me, I would have never experienced such fun and exhilarating feelings of achieving something.

When it comes to wanting something, if you draw your attention constantly on how you feel, you will never get it because you will never feel like it.

Every action we take in life is going to give you some kind of emotion.

In life, we crave good feelings and experiencing these good feelings with those we love.

If we don’t take control of our fear and have the guts to put ourselves on the line, we will never get the result that we want.

 

As I write this, I am reeling from such a phenomenal experience of fun with my loved one yesterday, that I can’t wipe the smile off of my face.

Look at our pictures here on the rides, how ALIVE to we look?

Go after what you want in life and experience what you want to experience.

Open your heart to the feelings of curiosity, exploration, adventure, excitement and fun.

Shut down that little voice in your head that is the voice of reason.

Let your imagination run wild and be unreasonable.
