Fear and Desire


These two terms may seem temporary for many of you or not existent, However, the truth is that must of us are driving all the time by fear and/or desire.

Our “job”, our pleasures, our relationships and many more are driven by these two powerful words. The worse part is that we don’t realize it and fall into this system of things and routines that keep us blind from the freedom of a different reality. That reality that we only dream of. That freedom to do and say whatever we want without any worries.

Many self motivational books from authors like Tony Robins, Dr. Dyer, Robert T. Kiyosaki, authors from the Bible, to name a few, can explain much better what I mean. Nonetheless, no one knows you like you, and no one ever will, so look inside your core, deep inside, and find that little voice that wants to excel and enjoy life.

Please don’t let fear and desire take control of you and do not teach that to your kids. We should go to school, not to get a “better job”, but to be aware of the knowledge around us and contribute to our society for the betterment of such. We should get into a relationship, not to avoid being alone or have kids like rabbits, but to share a life course and grow as a race and enjoy life with your other you. We should not work for some one who makes you feel like a robot, instead embrace your fundamentals and donate notion and intellect to your surroundings so that you and the generations to come will enjoy of a more prosperous and strong society.

I know many of you are graduating this year from High school, a trade school or university or perhaps you know some one who is; the best thing to tell those or yourself is to allow joy enter your, his/her life and control those emotions (fear and desire) while experimenting the beauty of living. Only then you will find yourself content, joyful or even happy. After all that, money will follow. It is part of the nature of things.

And please remember to love as if you never been hurt; work as if it is not for money; and dance as if no one is watching.
