A Courageous Career? Anyone?

Thinking about a new career? Is courage missing?

How about Firewalking or Sword Swallowing?

Anthony Robbins has famously used Firewalking to help his seminar participants overcome limiting self-beliefs.

Learn How to Firewalk here.

Sword Swallowing got a renewed boost when Hans Rosling swallowed his army bayonet from the Swedish Army, 1850 during his TED Talk - New insights on poverty.

To know about Sword Swallowing see How Sword Swallowing Works.

Interested? Anyone?

Where to Begin?

Often, we find our minds "cluttered up" around too many things. We know what to do (many to-do lists), but a "central integrated theme" seems to be missing. High Energy comes in spurts and dissipates fast. What is missing? You could be stuck in one or more of the following:
  • Pending work, Regular work, Administrative tidbits
  • Some-day/May be lists
  • Others' (sometimes huge, and "always" un-met) expectations
  • "Safe" plans of action but uninspiring
  • "Dream" action plan but not enough courage to move on those ideas
  • Relationship problems
  • Financial issues
  • Health Problems
  • Apathy
So, Where to Begin?

Here are some recommended places:

What you REALLY wish is weird?

Is there something that you REALLY would like to do in life, but didn't go around doing "it" because of a reason?

Probably, you think "it" is weird, or, one or more of the following:
  • Not practical
  • Not possible
  • What would others think
  • It would be Stupid
  • Dont Know How
  • Dont Have Time
  • Dont Have Cash
  • I am not good enough
  • I will do it when I retire
There are many ways to TRANSCEND these, or any mental barriers, you may have:

1. List things you would do if you knew success is guaranteed.
2. Consider that this is your last day on this earth (For a longer list, you may extend the period to one year. Just imagine that the doctor has told you would die in this period). 

What ALL would you do?

It is REALLY WEIRD that you are NOT doing things YOU REALLY WOULD LIKE TO DO!

Creative Living

Aileen Journey shares at Life Optimizer:

What’s important is thinking about what you truly want in your daily life.


My term for this type of thinking is “creative living.” How can you consider what you really want and come up with solutions that will work for you and your family?


So many people feel stuck in their lives because they think of everything as a whole. They think they need a certain amount for expenses, but they don’t realize that maybe they wouldn’t have those expenses if they lived differently. Some people want to travel, some people want to live in a certain place. People want all sorts of things that are often possible with some creative problem solving.

Are you growing younger?

As a teenager, I always felt 'all-powerful' and 'knew' I could do anything.

I focussed on what I wanted to do and NOT on what is possible and what is not possible.

Then, life took over and I GREW up - and the word 'dream' was no longer in my vocabulary....

However, after a few battles, I saw people around me GROWING OLD, and realized it was time turn the clock and start growing younger!

Paulo Coelho writes in Pilgrimage:

When we are young
and our dreams first explode inside us
with all of their force,
we are very courageous,
but we haven't yet learned how to fight.

With great effort,
we learn how to fight,
but by then we longer have the courage to go into combat.

So, we turn against ourselves and do battle within.
We become our own worst enemy.
We say that our dreams were childish,
or too difficult to realize
or the result of our not having known enough about life.

We kill our dreams
because we are afraid to fight the good fight.

Actually, when you VERY CLEAR about what you want to do, then no fight is FLOWS, effortlessly!

So, are you growing old or younger?
