The Fearless Mind by Craig Manning

Thomas Huxley: "The great end of life is not knowledge but action". Our actions define us.

Whether we're on the court, in an office, or spending time with our children — we are always performing.

Performing at the highest level of our ability comes down to how well we have learned to control our minds to rid ourselves of interference and stay focused on what needs to be done. If we allow interference into our psyche, it doesn't matter how much potential we have or how hard we work; we will not be able to make our dreams come true..

If we have the fearlessness to follow our hearts, there is not much we cannot do. But when we don't have a clear objective or dream that is ours, all the skill and knowledge in the world will not help us.

A fearless mind is achieved when we have cleansed ourselves of the barriers that prevent us from reaching our greatest potential. We do this by learning to accept what we have control over and what we don't. Once we understand what is our responsibility and what isn't, then we are able to channel all our energy into mastering those aspects that we have direct responsibility and not waste energy on those things that are not within our responsibility.

It is vitally important for us to always be working toward a clear purpose; otherwise we can get stuck swimming in circles and fighting with ourselves, leading to self-defeating behaviors. It is easy to get depressed if we allow our mental energies to be directed in ways that are not in our best interest.

Set objectives that are in your control and just a little beyond your reach — when we set appropriate objectives, fear has little to no room to exist in our mental processing.
