I can still hear my dad pounding this message into my brain in our pre-game talks growing up.
The reason so many of you struggle with fear and anxiety is because you are the opposite of aggressive.
You live passively.
You wait for things to happen instead of dedicating everything you have to making them happen.
You react instead of act.
There will never be peace of mind or security living like that.
You are just existing, waiting for the next bad thing to happen ... and it does.
This is the root for a lot of the "mental health" issues we see in society today.
Humans were built to move forward and create.
They were not meant to be passive and wait.
If you want to feel better immediately...
Get off your ass and go do something hard that's productive toward your future self.
If you are constantly focused on moving forward...
...and you know you're never gonna stop...
What do you have to be afraid of?
If you aren't afraid ... how can you have anxiety?
How can you lose with this mentality?
We all struggle sometimes.
All of us.
But we get over our pity party…
Get off our asses…
...and go build ourselves into the motherfuckers we’ve always wanted to be.
That’s what we do.
