[Official]: 30 Days of Facing Your Fears Challenge
I skyped with Jordan yesterday on his day of service and he pretty much inspired me to start this today. http://www.highexistence.com/day-of-service/
My 30 Days of Fear
30 days from now I’ll be posting results, as well as insights on my blog.
@brentman, Hey man, how’s it going so far?
I’m new here on the forum and I have to admit – I was pretty depressed couple of hours ago, when my sister reminded me of HE.
But I came here and realized – I can try to make them up, new challenges, every day. I don’t have to wait the life to bring them to me.. If this started to be my new ”comfort zone”, then I should just step out of it!
Sooo – I’m starting tomorrow. First challenge – Skype with Jordan.
P.S. sorry for my English, I never really learned it in school so…
Love this challenge. I have been reading through this for a few months now but I haven’t contributed until right now.
Few challenges of fear I have chased this month:
1. Plan a trip to Africa to help build homes and experience an under-developed country to the fullest. (That means living in the bush in a hut, no running water, toilets or electricity.) This is fully booked and I leave March 2nd. Very excited and scared.
2. Being a regular at the gym I see a lot of the same people everyday, I noticed that no one ever talks to each other so I took it upon myself to connect with every other regular there. This has actually turned out to be amazing, met some great people with great stories.
3. Approach any girl that makes eye contact with me….not to ask for numbers but to just have a simple conversation and say hello.
@martartar, it’s going pretty good; a lot more difficult keeping up with the practices than I had imagined!
As for your nerves skyping with Jordan, I felt the same way as I’m inexperienced with skype and knew that he has accomplished so much and didn’t want it to go ‘bad..’ as if it could.
@luigiblue, that’s awesome!!!!! I hope to embark on something like that someday…huge props to you for taking the initiative to travel and serve somewhere like that.
@brentman, Thanks man. Everything in the past year led up to this moment so it felt right to make the decision and go. I wish you all the luck in your challenges as well.
Well, let’s do this shit.
@brentman, you were right Brent, Jordan is great! It was really nice to talk with him. And since then I keep getting signs that I’m on the good way…it’s unbelievable.
Congrats for your public speech!
@luigiblue, Bon voyage! :)
Yesterday, I found no one to parkour with, so I went by myself. I finally faced my fears and managed to do a kong over a lunch table! I was so excited, that I tried a different move that came naturally to me over the same table, and it worked as well!
I was so excited that I was able to do these moves, that I tried to do them in succession. I started on tables that were far apart, and then moved onto tables that were spaced right next to each other. When I got that, I decided to go for it. 6 tables in a row. And I managed to make it. Twice.
I will do this again tomorrow, or possibly later today.
Day 1 – sent a honesty letter to a person I was in love with but never dared to say it.
@bookheadedcellist, I hope it goes well! Good luck!
This sounds like a great idea, I am going to join you, technically it started yesterday when I told my best friend I needed space from them. But let’s make that day 1. Tomorrow I am going to speak to her face to face about it, another thing I fear more than anything. But I am not sure I should count it, so I will think something else up for day 2.
Def. in. Here’s to 30 days to change my entire life around.
Day 1(aka today Feb 12th): Start this challenge. Make a list of things to do.
Day 2 – started yoga class again after a few months’ break!
Day 3 – finally made a 8tracks eclectic-on-your-own dance mix.
@jordan, This is an amazing idea! I just spent the past hour or so reading this whole thread and am now extremely inspired. As I’ve been reading I’ve been jotting down things I need to get done and various fears I have to face myself.
Good luck to all!
Day 2 fully committed to HE’s self love article. Day 3 finished my Comp Sci project well before the due date and to the best of my ability and I spoke to my friend face to face, awkward day to do it with it being valentines day and all. But it went really well.
Day 4 – didn’t manage to see Munch exhibition because it’s sold out, so didn’t do much actually.
wanted to bring this topic back because its just amazing.
I am going to start this challenge, but, coming to this page from the original post, it seems like this ‘discussion’ page won’t be very helpful for purposes of the challenge, as it has just been filled with all sorts of random comments and ideas. I do love the original post, though!
Just joined, from Sydney, Australia. Introduced to this site by a lovely friend from Norway. Today’s overcoming Fear exercise is turning on skype, and have conversations with members of extended family. Something in these sort of conversations get overridden by anger and life being sucked out. So, here goes. Thanks!!
Oh I’ll totally do it, starting tomorrow, although I wouldn’t know what to do. My fears involve expressing myself and, I don’t know… I don’t even know what my fears are, but I’ll do something tomorrow.
Really great topic, started right after I finished reading it !
I know that I need to take this challenge but that’s what I have been putting off. I am in for this from now on.
Today starting this challenge, this is btw the first one, I never have joined a online conversation before.
Incredibly motivated to do this challenge, especially the days I’m confronting my fears. I already feel the fear coursing through my body
After taking up this challenge, there have been major changes in my behaviour and life. There is now a greater confidence about my abilities as well. I was postponing certain things and procrastinating a lot before. It has started vanishing. I am more proactive now.
@jordan, Today I made my own organic almond milk and almond butter. I almost burned up my food processor on the latter, but it all turned out okay. I feel very organic. :)
