The Cave you Fear Holds the Treasure

In particularly difficult times when I am certain I could not possible survive, I like to remind myself about the past. My track record is pretty good for enduring difficulties and “impossible” odds. In fact, I have 100% record of surviving. That’s a great record, isn’t it?


When you lie in fear, your abilities become dormant. On the other side of fear, is freedom. On the other side of fear, is your destiny calling. Don’t wait for it. Reach out and touch it. Act tough, be bold. For, fear will never disappear. Fear is a loyal and trusted servant. It is not for you to suppress fear, or reject it, or worse, pretend it doesn’t  exist. It does.

Fear is as real as you think it is.


What is your biggest fear?

Face it in the mirror.


“The cave you fear to enter holds the treasure that you seek.” — Joseph Campbell

That treasure is waiting. It’s on the other side of fear.

It seeks you.

It is yours waiting, beckoning, tapping you on your shoulder.

Act now…

Samuel Beckett’s words: ”Ever tried. Ever failed. No matter. Try Again. Fail again. Fail better.”
