“I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.” – Frank Herbert, Dune
You, reading this right now…
Why the fuck are you so afraid to go after the things that you want? Why are you so afraid?
Listen, I know you’re afraid, I know you’re scared. “What if I fuck it up?” “What if it is not what I wanted in the first place?” I know those fears, I used to have them myself. “If I go after this, my life will change forever.” “My husband/wife/boyfriend/girlfriend will leave me.” Believe me, I’m old friends with these fears.
I doubt you’ll read this. A busy life leaves very little time for reading articles posted by a bald writer who says the word “fuck” like it’s a god-damned comma. I get this, but I really hope you do read and absorb this. I hope it lights a fire under your ass and convinces you to choose to follow your heart and your own path.
