I. How To Conquer Your Fear And Go After Something You Want

+ “Turns out what it takes to chase an opportunity isn’t the same as what it takes to act on one.”

+ “A big opportunity may make you nervous, but that’s OK. It doesn’t mean you will fail and doesn’t mean you shouldn’t pursue it.”

We all have dreams, but they come with their demons — fears. 
These fears stand as gatekeepers between us and our destiny. 
But its oK to be afraid. Just don’t let it keep you back.

II. Why we are never truly satisfied

+ “Only a man who lives not in time but in the present is happy…”

+ “Human beings are storytellers. We don’t see or observe things as they are but we impose a narrative line on the events in our life to add order to them.”

+ “We are not here to run from one illusionary problem to another; we are here to see, and experience, and love, and trust what is present — right now.”

III. How to know a man is ready to commit

+ “If you wait around for someone who has nothing to give, you’ll end up right back where you started: with nothing”

+ “He isn’t ready for commitment if he has no plans for the future.”

+ “Putting other people and things above you doesn’t make you a priority, it makes you a stepping stone to the next easier thing that’s sure to come along.”

+ “If he wants to be with you for the long haul he isn’t going to be sitting on the fence mulling it over for years before deciding you’re The One.”

+ “More importantly, if you want a man who’ll commit, find one who’s actually ready. A man is ready to commit when he follows through with his actions and keeps his word. Anything less than that is nothing.”
