A video clip of actor Will Smith has gone viral after the father shared an epiphany he had three years ago after going sky diving for the first time with friends on a talk show.
Will goes on to explain how facing his fear of skydiving has taught him that the only way to get rid of fear is to face it- each and every day.
“If there was one concept that I would suggest to people to take a daily confrontation with its fear. The problem of fear is that it lies,” said Will.
Will goes on to explain how fear only exists before you face the perceived danger and that staring the actual danger in the face is “the most blissful experience of your life- there is zero fear. The point of maximum danger is the point of minimal fear. Its bliss.”
Many of us spend so much time fearing the things that have yet to happen or that might never happen that we avoid living life fully.
“There’s no reason to be scared. Its only gonna ruin your day…God placed the best things in life on the other side of terror.”
What are you scared of? Falling in love? Asking for a promotion? Moving into your own home? Looking foolish in front of your colleagues?
Facing your fears daily will allow you to live the way you truly want to rather than shrinking back.
