It’s not what you don’t know that gets in the way of your success. It’s what you do know that isn’t true that gets in the way of you manifesting and living a life of your dreams. What we think we know is really just someone else’s opinion about the subject matter, IE, right now I’m in Africa and for the longest time all I saw was commercials with babies with flies on their face and scenes of war and things of that nature and as of recently the Ebola scare, right.
When it came time for me to come here everybody including myself based on their opinions started getting a little afraid. Now that I’m here I am experiencing what I would deem the most welcoming beautiful people I have ever experienced in my life. You see for at least 10 years I’ve had the dream of coming to Africa and what’s gotten in my way is what I knew about Africa, what I knew about India.
Now I want you to apply this to your own life. Right now you know too much about that dream of yours that you want to accomplish. You know that you have to go and take these steps and you’ve got to get a PHD and you’ve got to da da da da. You have this whole list of things that you know and what you know is getting in your way. The people who succeed, the people who break barriers, the people who create stuff like the airplane, like the cellphone, these are the people who are so naive, they’re so naive, they’re so willing to dream and get out of their own way because this is what it’s really about.
Everything in your way has to do with you and no other circumstance. You’re in your own way, you know too much so today start to cultivate, cultivate a consciousness of naivety. Cultivate a consciousness of freedom and curiosity. Start to get curious about life and let go of all of your shoulds and coulds and would have’s and step into the magic of the unknown. There’s a curious kid in all of us. There’s somebody who will dare to be different. There’s somebody who will dare to go to what we call the end of the Earth only to find out that there is no end. There’s somebody who will dare to run the 4 minute mile when they say your heart will explode if you do. Thank you Roger Bannister for that. There’s somebody who will dare.
My question to you is what will you dare to do today? Guys, thank you so much for taking this journey with me here in Africa, one of the most beautiful places I have ever experienced. I’ll see you soon. If you’re new to the family go ahead click like, subscribe. If you’re on Facebook tag a friend, tag a loved one, share this message.
