Following our passion excites us and forces us out of our comfort zones and helps us grow. Your ego wants you to stay in your comfort zone and not take any risk. The conscious mind is the rational mind and wants to follow logic not feelings.
The subconscious mind is our feeling mind, that powerful mind that wants new ventures and the freedom to do and explore. People who truly successful in life follow their gut feelings and even if things work out they know that it is not the end of the world.
If you are true to your subconscious mind you will push yourself to the limit. It loves the rush of adrenalin, anxiety is when you add fearful outcome thought to that adrenalin. We feel truly alive when we experience that rush of adrenalin.
When you want to follow your passion. explore and move into a new space outside your comfort zone your conscious mind will present hundreds of safer alternatives and all the reasons you shouldn’t move on to something new and challenging.
Your ego will remind you of what you may be leaving behind but darken the sights of all the possibilities that lies ahead. It will be scared of the unknown that lies ahead. You have to conquer your fears. Every fear conquered today makes tomorrow easier.
We should not fear failure, the more you fail the successful you will become eventually. As long as we keep learning from our mistakes we will eventually succeed.
Living should be fun. If you are not having fun from what you are doing nothing else matters. If you are not excited and passionate about the work you are doing then working towards some lofty goal is probably not worth it.
If there is something that you are passionate about start taking action. There is nothing worse that looking back at the end of your life and asking yourself “what if?”
