To remain conscious and undistracted? Actually challenged yourself? Like to finish that book you’re always talking about. Like, if you don’t write a chapter a week you all your friends $100? Like, if you don’t start that app (you are constantly talking about) within the next month, you have to take us all out to dinner- a nice dinner.
The point is, there must be a consequence for freezing in the face of fear. You must instill consequences throughout the rest of your life, unless less you want to cling to the safety net of a comfy and superficial life.
Fear is no longer an excuse, unless your being chased by a bear and at that point it’s already happening so I’m sure you’ll be super present.
