Let me just say this: Fuck living with regret! You deserve to live a life devoid of overwhelming anxiety or fear! That’s what I believe a life well lived looks like.
And yet… Too many people are crippled by the opinions of others! It’s a huge mistake because what other people think is out of your control!
Never Focus on Factors Outside Your Control
The great Greek philosopher Epictetus understood this thousands of years ago. Take a minute and really study his quote just below these words.
Today, you’re going to learn to make the shift: and stop worrying about what people say.
Here’s the first step: Care about your opinion of yourself instead! Focus on what you can control: your actions! Once you take action, regardless of result, your only concern should be learning so that you perform better in the future…
See the Actions You Take like a Scientist Would
“What’s the number one lesson I learn from the action I just took?” Ask yourself this very question just after you take action. Place your ego aside and be like a scientist!
And just like a scientist running experiments, learn from every outcome should be your ultimate goal. And just like a scientist running tests, never attach your identity to a single result.
After you finish your “experiment,” take what you learned and make another move! Run another experiment. Take more action.
That’s how it’s done!
Fear Regret More than You Fear Rejection
From now on, fear regret, or the process of missing out on a new opportunity, more than you fear rejection! This new way of thinking gives you massive leverage to take massive action!
By fearing regret, and by loathing the feeling associated with missing out, you’ll suddenly feel anxious if you do NOT take action. The reason? You’re now genuinely anxious about the prospect of having to live with regret!
If there was a “secret hack” for not giving a fuck, it’s this: fearing regret more than rejection! Think about the greatest performers in any field or industry…
They’re are focused on winning — they’re not afraid of losing!
And they keep taking action — regardless of what happens in the short term — because they can only focus on getting the results they desire. Their desire for success trumps their fears and anxiety.
And finally, by repeatedly taking action, they completely desensitize themselves to their fears! Translation: their fears disappear!
Do the Things You Want to Do
Simply worry about dominating the factors you can control (your happiness, your results) and let go of everything else (opinions of others, fear of rejection, etc.)
Trust me: You’ll stop giving a fuck about stupid things when you begin fearing regret more than you fear rejection! The reason this is so effective? This change in thinking will spring you into action!
And by taking action, you’ll quickly learn most of the fears you once had weren’t even real! Even better, by taking action, you’ll finally live a full and fulfilled life!
If you want to do something, go do it! Take action! Who gives a fuck what people think! This is your life.
To your peak,
