Sup team – TGIF 🙂
This will be a quick one, I just want to expand on my decision to continue traveling until I start an online business.
I know why I haven’t gone 0 to 1 in the past, I’m afraid to. Simple as that. I lack not the abilities, desire, access to capital, nothing. I’m afraid.
I follow Tim Ferriss closer than anyone, and I loved watching him single-handedly get SXSW cancelled, but I loved his post on fear even more:
“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.”
— Bene Gesserit, Litany Against Fear (from the novel Dune)
It’s time to face this fear thousands of miles from home. If I start and fail, that’s ok. I’m only forcing myself to start.
Like all my mentors, I post this to create accountability. Don’t let me come home empty-handed. It’s time.
