Ever since I started writing about the importance of humankind’s living, wellbeing and productivity in our fast-paced world, I find more and more people interested in self-knowledge and self-improvement.

I am grateful that my work has been connecting me with many people from all over the world, from all walks of life, who believe that we can build a better world, believing in the unlimited potential of humanity and most of all — the belief and faith within themselves that they can make a difference.

We live in a world where everything seems to be uncertain. Uncertainty fueling anxiety and fear fueling doubts.

How many of you have managed to achieve something of greatness in spite of your fears and anxiety? How many organizations have managed to expand their business through fear and anxiety?

People are taught to live in fear of everything that is unknown to them. One who fears the unknown has reached how far? One who fears the unknown has created what?

One has reached and created only more uncertainty and missed opportunities.

Where there is no fear, there is no uncertainty!

What if you were to live without fear? How would you feel if you were to live in harmony with yourself?

Can you imagine your life without fear of failure, without fear of missing opportunities?

Can you imagine living a life filled with possibilities within the unknown?

The most incredible experiences and successes in life result from the fact that you have come to harmony with fear and the endless possibilities that fear gives you.

Many thought that Edison was crazy to go and search the unknown. See what an amazing gift he has given to the world. Was it because of fear? Hardly any.

Life offers safety, keeping people from fear, causing people to stop thinking and not being able to make a decision.

How long will it be before you decide to move past your fears and uncertainties? How long will it take you to turn back time?

I’m sorry to deliver you the bad news — you won’t be able to turn back time.

All you can do is to live in the present and look forward to the future. Looking forward to the future without fear.

Work on removing the uncertainties within your character.

You can begin with a simple step of waking up in the morning and telling yourself,

“Today is going to be a good day. Today I’m going to subdue the world!”

Try it. Let me know what you discover. I love hearing from you.

Only the one who doesn’t try will never know what he or she has missed.

Live today and every day without fear.

Show up every morning with a smile, in spite of life’s peaks and valleys. Don’t be afraid; don’t allow your uncertainties to keep you silent.

I know that there’s greatness within you and that you can be great.

Think about some of the greatest achievers in the world; they have been successful because they’ve embraced fear; they’ve removed the fear factor.

Some of the greatest heroes in history throughout the world knew that they had to fulfill a mission, in spite of their fears, removing the fears so they can leave a better world for all of us.

Have you found your mission? If you have, I know that you’re already on the way of spreading your calling to the world and if you haven’t, perhaps it’s time you remove your fears and begin to move on the road to your greatness.

How many times have you thought about your fears and how many of them have you eliminated? Have you thought about your fears in the first place?

Fear is disrespect to your own self. A way of saying that you do not believe in your possibilities and that you cannot move ahead. Standing in one place is not healthy for you — physically, emotionally and psychologically.

Show yourself respect!

Fight for your dreams. Keep creating. Keep moving forward boldly.

I urge you to create your own world and to invite others on your path. If you can believe in your own self, others will believe in you, and they’ll begin to have faith within themselves, as well. This way, everyone will be creating ripple effects of improvement for everyone around them and the world.

A known quote by Epictetus, a Greek-born slave of Rome in the first century, who became a great philosopher and teacher, says:

“It is not what happens to you, but how you react to it that matters.”

One certainty of life that everyone has is that everyone will be faced with difficulty. Most give up during this process costing them their entire life.

Don’t be one of them.

Don’t put more fuel into fire when there’s a fire; don’t anger your children, if they haven’t helped you with household chores. Don’t accuse others of being incompetent, if you haven’t done anything of helping them become competent.

What do you achieve by angering a situation that has already caught fire? You create more fire.

You allow yourself to become more angered, unable to make decisions and solve the state at hand.

What would happen if you were to approach the situation with a smile, greeting everyone? Do you think that this would create more certainty for yourself and others? Absolutely.

Your nerves might be restraints from a situation. Take a step back. Pause. Reflect on the condition.

Did you listen to your children instead of blaming them for not helping you? Have you considered the fact that you might be the reason that your employees are not finishing their work? Perhaps, you provided vague instructions. It’s easy to be reactive. Have you thought about being proactive and reflecting on the situation?

Can you wake up tomorrow, showing love to the world?

Can you wake up tomorrow, showing patience to the world?

Can you wake up tomorrow, showing up without fear?

Can you wake up tomorrow; showing everyone that fear is disrespect that has no place in this world?

The most successful people look like they have big dreams, stable values, they are confident in themselves. These are people of action, who do not fear failure.

Do you want to be one of these people? Do you want to be a creator of your future? Do you want to be confident?

Move on past mistakes. Use them as lessons for your personal growth and development. It doesn’t matter how old you are.

Make yourself a better individual, parent, sibling, employee, and friend.

Do better. Every day. Work on outperforming yourself.

“I learned that courage was not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it. The brave man is not who does not feel afraid, but he who conquers that fear.” ~ Nelson Mandela
