Fearless Yesterday

Habits are not one and done.

Neither are character traits.

They are daily decisions. We might wish that choosing to have enthusiasm yesterday would characterize us as enthusiastic next week. 🤔

Slap it on the resume, like a certification. Right? Put it on LinkedIn. That’d be wonderful.

Unfortunately, it doesn’t work that way.

Our perceived character and habits are a dynamic, ever-changing evaluation of how we conduct ourselves in every scenario. Helping the old lady carry her groceries this morning will mean nothing to the flight attendant we piss off next week.

Recently, I made a big decision to leave the college basketball coaching ranks (I’ll add: in good standing), and that was a “fearless” decision. I had a vision for myself. I had to make a change if I wanted to achieve that. So against the conventional wisdom and advice, I gave it up.

“I am FEARLESS!” – Me (that day)

Yesterday, I realized that every decision since then, I’ve made with fear in my heart. I’d mistaken the consistent, mindful approach that it takes to live fearlessly as something we can be certified in once and then carry with us, like a badge.

What qualified us as fearless, today, only truly proves one thing:

That we have the same capacity to live that fearlessly again, tomorrow…

If we consciously choose to.

The “Bugs Bunny Effect”

The “Bugs Bunny Effect”

“This 15-minute webinar made me 100k in 3 months!

“How you too can have this much success!

“Turn your website into a money making machine!

Fortunately for all of us out here in reality-land, there are a lot of options when it comes to getting rich, getting fit, and having success at, well, anything.

Dilemma: None of these “resources” do the work for you. Even the good programs, where “gurus” do genuinely invest quality energy into giving you worthwhile information, are not an actionable solution to your problems.

My thoughts: This whole “you too could be this awesome” idea, actually does do something positive to your psyche. You don’t, however, need to buy the program to find that out.

Bugs Bunny’s greatest moment, possibly one of the most iconic deliveries in sports psychology, is exactly what hammers home my point. (If you have not seen the movie Space Jam, do yourself a favor and check it out immediately).

“Michael’s Secret Stuff” – the halftime juice that saved the Tune Squad

Placebo-like thought patterns like this one (anything is possible), are sometimes enough to inspire action.

Don’t take the click bait.
