Something hit me the past weekend after I did an approach just for the hell of it.

We all experience fears in our lives. Doesn't matter if it is a certain type of movie, fear of heights, bugs, WHATEVER! Its all fear, and people shy away from their fears. Personally, I have been afraid of certain things my whole life. My fear of fighting and getting hurt kept me from standing up for myself in school. My fear of rejection kept me away from girls for pretty much ALL OF HIGHSCHOOL. My fear of people I don't know and of the Unknown has kept me from experiencing amazing things that I now can't. I sat back that night of approaching and realized just how much I am still afraid of things. And you know what..... I was DISGUSTED with myself. I am tired of being afraid of approaching. Tired of being afraid to stand out. Tired of being afraid to fail.



Starting this week I have taken massive initiative to deliberately throw myself into situations where i MUST overcome these fears. This week I entered in a Lifeguard competition on a whim, something I have never done before. People will be watching, and my teammates will be counting on me in a big way. I have been watching movies that scare me every night. ANYTHING that provokes a fear response!

I plan on keeping myself in a state of fear for AS LONG AS I CAN.

I'm going to find things that I'm scared of doing and do them. Through this I hope to be able to discover my deepest fears and conquor them. I though a lot about what Tyler spoke about when he said that he spends most of his life shit scared (pretty sure that was him) and I realized this is what I must do to better myself and become a fearless mother fucker.



I also issue this as a challenge to anyone out there who wants to give it a try. We'll say...... a 2 week challenge. Thanks for reading.

Today, I mastered my fear of public performances and placed 2nd in the lifeguard competition.

Anyone doing the 2 weeks be sure to post how things are going and any actions you are taking!

For the weekend:

The goal is to only approach when I'm very intimidated/afraid of rejection. Go into sets with lots of girls by myself. Here we go!!!
