The Persistent and Timely Will Inherit the Earth

The original title of this post was, "The Reason We Didn't Meetup When I Visited Your City" and it was geared towards explaining what it's like to be busy with lots of correspondence. The post grew past this. This one will be useful for people who expect that they might have huge correspondence increases in the future - rarely do people talk bluntly about what it's like. It'll also be useful for the expansive sort of person who reaches out to people they don't know, so you can understand the mindset of who you're reaching out to. It rambles a little bit in the middle, but I think the mindsets and details could be useful for you.

The Reason We Didn't Meetup When I Visited Your City...

...is because I'm disorganized and you didn't drop a line again.

So, I get a lot of correspondence. Which is great. I really dig that. A couple days ago, I had a great Skype chat about international investing and business expansion with a really smart and cool guy out in SF, and then I met three people locally in Tokyo who are all exceptionally cool guys. I learned a lot, and I think so did the guys I got to hang with, and it was good. I like seeing other people thrive and make money, and got to have some good talks on business and entrepreneurship with everyone I met - I think everyone can hustle a bit more cash here or there.

I really enjoy that. I like meeting smart and enterprising people. I say that everyone - on my site, in posts, on my "About" and "New? Start here" pages,

The Mindset of Surmountable Fear

On The Mindset

My biggest fear is failure. Failure to achieve, failure to accomplish, failure to triumph, failure to succeed. I fear the unknown. Not because of its possible endings, but because of the possibility that I might not be able to conquer the unknown. Yet here I am, alive and breathing, in my right state of mind, fulfilling my destiny, and pursuing a legacy. How do I do it amidst my fear? It’s simple…I overcome fear.

In order to overcome fear I had to first realize where it came from. Timothy said “For God has not given us the spirit of fear, but of power and of love and a sound mind”. I think fear is not addressed properly these days because we don’t talk about where it originates. Fear is not something that is obsolete. It’s a feeling that hangs around and lurks. Fear is a genuine state of mind; it’s just not a Godly state of mind. Once I recognized that fear didn’t come from God, it raised the question who does fear come from? The next time you are fearful of something think about where it came from and remember the Lord says “Fear not”. In fact he says it 365 times in the bible, see the coincidence?

Another thing I do to overcome fear is, I fight Fear with Fire. What do I mean by that? My fear of having a fear of anything is what helps me overcome. I despise fear, and like I mentioned earlier I know fear is not of God so my fear of fear keeps me from fearing the things I use to fear. Instead I use my fear to fight fear completely.
