Most of the time it's better for our mental sake to do things thoughtfully, slowly, with peace. But other times it’s necessary to put all the learning and experience to the test.
Every time I gave 100% I did crash, but because I wasn’t ready. I hadn’t practice to “the test” so my mind came in stronger and faster than my body. Consequently I fell.
So we must practice.
Practice focusing in something for a good amount of time, practice to be calm around chaos; practice thinking thoroughly before speaking or acting; practice quieting the mind to listen to our intuition and instincts. Practice to be better.
And then, we must push ourselves to step outside our comfortable area.
That means, not trying to control what’s going around us, and keep all the previous learning well present in our mind state.
That means following your inner voice, strength and nature towards another route, a higher speed, a different intensity, tone, adventure, a different perspective, a new attitude; finally giving that courageous step you were dreaming about.
You’ll be on the verge of crashing, but, and there’s always a but, you’ll grow from finally learning to follow your instinct. You’ll be more alive, more in tune and more passionate than ever. Adrenaline will kick in and you’ll build the confidence to inspire and create. Aren’t we here for that? To overcome?
