Fear? Who Me?

I believed that being afraid was never an option for me. Well,  good horror movies scare the heck out of me . 

Finally, I came to the conclusion that being a straight up punk, coward or whatever you call a person that allows themselves to be their worst enemy when it comes to attempting success is exactly who I am.

 Being afraid to fail is a huge obstacle for me and why should I care whose watching? Well, I care since people are the worst critics when you try and fail miserably. Developing a tough skin and an attitude that oozes I don’t give a rats arse what anyone thinks may give me enough cohunes to move forward. Ha!

 Frankly, the mere fact that my existence here on earth isn’t forever should be enough fuel to get me going eliminating all fear. However, it seems that ruining your credibility is a far more easily attained then building a positive reputation. It’s sort of like your credit score which takes days to trash to hell and years to rebuild.

 Fear is surely wrapped up tightly with procrastination which is the devil himself! If only I just dug in and took a chance rather than choosing to wait until the timing was right. Oh my!  The waiting game, shame on me, the biggest fluke ever like, when is the PERFECT time? However, there are some situations like wanting to make someone your girlfriend when she’s married where timing is of essence.  Divorce should occur first but who does that nowadays they just jump in the sheets.

 We are more willing to move forward with self-destructive actions and become an utter success. The time and energy we put into silly things that end up causing devastation to ourselves and others could be easily redirected towards more enlightening and positive quests. Oh well, human nature is a bust.

    I have to say, obviously it depends on what the thing you’re trying to do is, but I don’t think you’re right. In my experience people are never actually that big a critic, they just say something small – a small joke, a snide comment or two – and you blow it out of proportion in your mind. For me, it was all in my head. The person forgot my failure within an hour or two. Either that or we laughed about it for years afterwards.

    As for ruining your credibility, again I never found failing to ruin my credibility (or maybe I was already un-credible?). People just don’t care that much about your failures. They are too busy worrying about their own.

    • I agree that mostly we imagine people actually care. However, depending on the mentality of those who are watching they without a doubt want you to fail. Seems sick but very true. When remarks such as ” You know what you are trying to do is going to be almost impossible” are spoken into existence.
      I only wish it were true that everyone were more concerned with their own failures then others. You see, Paul when people celebrate your failures it somehow gives them peace about their failures. At least, that’s how I see things in my world or maybe I am being delusional.
