Something interesting I’ve noted:

Not all fear is made alike. Good fear is this:
Fear which focuses you, concentrates you, and strengthens you.
The goal isn’t to fear zero fear… it is simply to not shirk from fear.
When David is facing Goliath he feels fear,,, but doesn’t let the fear PREVENT him from attacking (and then) destroying Goliath!
A hypocrite: an actor. Someone who ‘fronts’ or pretends to be something they aren’t.
A contradictor: contra (against) dict (talk).
Thus a hypocrite is a faker, whereas a contradictor is someone who says one thing but engages in behavior that he criticizes others for.
Why is this difference important? Let me explain.…
No. We want to do things. We want challenge, fun, and more.
Be distrustful of anyone (psychologists, philosophers, economics, etc) who say:
The human desire is to do as little as humanly possible, to conserve our energy.
No. We desire to maximally expend our energy! To become more powerful, to gain more, and to indulge more of our desires. To achieve more, create more, and consume more!…
