Too often athletes come along who appear to be destined for greatness, but never reach it. They have all the physical abilities: speed, explosiveness, strength, endurance, and intelligence. Yet, for some reason they never reach their full potential. They become crippled by self-doubt despite of their physical abilities. They get caught up in cycles of interference that spiral them back down to mediocrity. And after it all, we are left asking ourselves: What could they have achieved with a fearless mind?


What if we all knew exactly what we want to achieve in this life, and not only that, but had a plan to achieve that vision, and not let negative emotions or thoughts deter us? Do you believe that we could reach our dreams? Do you think we could make it happen? We do not have to fall into mediocrity. We can all reach the highest levels of our potential with a fearless mind.


Our lack of abilities does not hold us back; the interference we allow to occupy our mind does. We lose valuable energy when we have guilt and fear—the two greatest sources of interference. We often focus too much on the aspects of life that are not in our control. Why? It is the way we have been conditioned in this world since we were children. The truth is that the secret to success is not a secret at all. We have known it for thousands of years—only when we remove the interference from our life can we unleash our full potential. Only then can we be successful.


“What we do with our allotted time here on this planet and what we make of our life is a direct reflections of the choices that we make,” Dr. Manning states in his book The Fearless Mind. The choices we make each day create our life, and the way we live influences the choices we make. We often make bad decisions because we are not accountable to ourselves. But what if you held yourself accountable for everything in your control? Why would you waste energy on things that are not in your control? Decisions are made in the present moment, and only when we live in the present moment can we make the best decisions. Fear is interference and lives in the future. Guilt is also interference and lives in the past. Living in the present is the key to being fearless.


The tool to achieve a fearless mind

Every individual with a subscription to The Fearless Mind resource center or who receives Fearless Mind coaching has access to the Mental Skills Journal. The Mental Skills journal was developed to help channel spiritual, emotional, mental, and physical energies. It is a tool for individuals to take responsibility for their lives and their performances. We constantly need to supplement our need to develop mental skills. The journal enables us to have a clear purpose, a plan to achieve our purpose, and an opportunity to evaluate ourselves on a daily basis. When we use the journal with purpose growth is not only likely, it is inevitable.
