What would you do if you felt no fear?
What would you try if you had no fear of failure?
Probably anything. Probably everything.
Fear is useless; it is the ability to recognize danger leading to an urge to confront it or flee from it (also known as the fight or flight response). So, throughout history fear has been useful….back before the world was pussified beyond belief, Men, when stricken with “fear” had an adrenaline rush to fight or to run (flight). Makes sense, survival is priority number one, afterall.
But this is a new world…. survival is all but guaranteed so really, fear serves zero purpose. Men with the balls to fight fear or know when to run are virtually extinct which leaves us with a bunch of “dudes” who freeze when stricken with fear. A bunch of useless people who will avoid anything out of their comfort zone because they are scared.
Scared of what?
- Failing, which eliminates the number of people who eve fucking try
- Losing, which prevents most people from ever realizing their own potential because they refuse to compete
- Confrontation, which leaves a bunch of dudes who cant stand up for themselves, let alone other people (like their family)
- Talking to the opposite sex, which…cmon really? Fear is a survival mechanism, by being a little bitch and letting it prevent you from baby-making you are taking a survival mechanism and expediting our extinction. But then again, if you’re afraid to talk to women maybe we don’t want your genes spread anyway.
- Image, today, image is everything. Being scared that people will see you in a negative light will prevent you from doing what NEEDS to be done in most cases.
- The unknown. This is the biggest one. I know people who stay in miserable marriages and miserable jobs because they are so fucking scared that hey have no idea what would happen if things were to change. Be a man (or woman)… nutcheck yourself and realize part of being human is exploring the unknown. You should WANT to know. “Grab your balls, or grab your boobs, and do that the damn thing” – Chandler Marchman. Amen Chandler, Amen.
If you are scared of something…do the right thing… fight it or run the fuck away. Do not freeze, do not let it stop you from moving forward. Embrace the unknown and Do Epic Shit!
