The 50th Law - 50 Cent & Robert Greene
What's power to you? Freedom from fear is power to me. What's fear to you? The worst fear I've experienced in my 'blip in time' 31 years, has been being afraid to be myself. To essentially hide behind the constructs of who I thought others wanted me to be. Afraid to be into whatever the fuck I wanted to be into because it wasn't who/what I was "supposed to be." Going with the ebb and flow of societal and familial norms because it's 'easier', all the while wanting something else. That's fear. That's bitching out. And it doesn't have to be on a grand, life-altering scale. On a micro-level, there could be certain areas of your life, of your character that you've been putting off changing. But until when? Take that first all important baby step of pinpointing those areas and addressing them objectively and to yourself. Only then can your powerful Journey begin. You'll without a doubt look back on the issue(s) and wish that you'd addressed it sooner. The gains you make, that at one point in time seemed unattainable, you begin to realize can and will continue to accumulate exponentially as long as you're putting in the effort. When you slack, when you fall off as you sometimes will, remember that that endless pool of power awaits you, whenever you re-take that all important first baby step.
