Surviving is not living
You’ve spent the first few years of your life learning how to survive, becoming a survival animal. But at some point in growing your consciousness, you were supposed to reject survival as your way of life and begin the process of learning how to live outside the box, beyond the fear. A major part of the process of learning how to really live must be spent in replacing your survival mindset with that of the daring adventurer.
You live in a box; we all do. Survival is the process for keeping us safe inside the box. But just surviving is not really living, is it? Real living is life outside the box with one daring adventure after another. The question is: “How do you find your way past the fear and outside of that box?”
Almost everyone you know wants to be richer, healthier, and/or happier in some way. We all want life to get better, don’t we? But only a very few of us will realize our dreams of, “some day I’ll…”. That’s because we humans are too busy being survival animals – we’re busy trying not to fail. As survivors, we are actually programmed to maintain the status quo by resisting change. But survival is not really living – is it?
The only way past your own built-in, survival based, success-blocking mental programming is for you know what you want from life and then to bravely choose to BE the one to whom that quality of life belongs. Choosing out of the box takes you out of the survival mode past the fear. Acknowledge your fear as the mental survival software clicking in, then, bravely choose past the fear. Remember, brave isn’t brave if you’re not afraid.
Remember, Helen Keller, once said, “Life is either a daring adventure or it’s nothing!”
