[Official]: 30 Days of Facing Your Fears Challenge
Day 8: Practiced speaking on camera
This may not sound scary to you, and it’s not necessarily ‘scary’ to me, but I dread it. I know I can reach more people with videos in addition to writing articles, so being good on camera is something I know I need to do. Today I made some really big strides :)
day1: wore a sombrero to class
I did 215 pushups in 15 minutes. Then an icy cold shower afterwards. Scary stuff
@jordan Datura, really? That’s not even a psychedelic — it’s a delerient. You’ll see shit that’s not there, have conversations that don’t actually exist. Is there a specific reason you want to try it? I’ve only read negative stories from people where they talked to imaginary people and ended up 3 days later in a hospital.
Maybe there’s some use that i’m not aware about and you can enlighten us? :)
I’m in. Good idea Jordan!
@feren6, Please keep this discussion to reporting on the challenge. Check here for your answer: http://www.highexistence.com/topic/datura-flying-ointment/
Day 1: Posted musings on fear that I wrote in highschool.
Day 2: Died my hair purple/blue
Day 9: Attempt to con my way into a Joe Rogan show and to meet him afterwards
@jordan, Dude that is AWESOME. Do you have picture/audio/video for proof?
Day 2: Inspired by another suggestion from this website, I added a Cold blast to the end of my shower. Most painful, exhilarating, refreshing thing I’ve done in a while.
Day 3: I forgave someone who had done a terrible and stupid thing to me. I ran into them randomly, and instead of ignoring or giving the evil eye, I became the better person and said Hi. It feels so damn good to get over grudges, and maintain positive relationships with people.
@jordan, nice photoshop
OT: I started my homework… yesterday. going to be a grueling 12 more hours today.
Day 3: Cleaned my entire apt. along with laundry (give it a 2, was a HUGE mess)
so far I’ve posted something I was afraid to/insecure about, done something I’ve never done(died my hair), and now something I’ve been putting off
Today I realized that Noah Kagan lives in my city and I made it a goal to try to meet him. I went to the office of his business AppSumo but no one was there (duh it’s Saturday..). I then tweeted to him a video of me at the offices saying that I would bring him a burrito of his choice to meet him (he loves burritos). @jordan, any advice?
Day 10: Sleeping outside in the woods. Alone.
My friend suggested this one and I was immediately not feeling it, which is why I had to do it. About to head out there now. If I never publish another post on HE, you know what happened to me :p
@jordan, I’m about to do the same thing. Although, time will show whether I dare to actually sleep out, I might stay awake. I’m heading out this Monday. Good luck! :)
@jordan, That sounds badass. I’d try it but there’s some coyotes in the woods by my house. I take it you’re doing this without a tent?
Been reading this site for so long and have had many times that I wanted to comment but haven’t partly because I have trouble turning my thoughts into words because of indecisiveness and also because there is some company out there recording all our moves on the internet and might be used against us in the future.
I found this place at what seemed like a perfect time when I felt like I was entering the phase @drquantum so clearly described here or maybe I entered it because I found the site!
And this comment feels great
@antlob, I am using a tent because it’s literally freezing here at night. Canada is so cold compared to California its ridiculous. Going out now, goodnight!
@nisrom, How are you finding the Tibetan rites? That’s gonna be what I start tomorrow!
Day 1: Flying on my own for the first time. Not a biggy, but still a first.
Safety first! I’d like to mention that if someone really tries to face all of their fears in a month, it may lead to complete turning point in their lives, so take it easy… and really check out your stress levels, facing a fear EVERY single day could be riskier than you think and some stuff just takes more time to adapt to. I still can’t believe that for two months I spoke in front unfamiliar group of people and improvised, did fairly well, learned how to cook almost everything I could think of, made a hundred new contacts, and now I’m basically losing myself and my new lifestyle of living on my own. I’m starting to feel the need for some kind of entertainment or I’m afraid I’m gonna break down dramatically.
Day 1: Not being afraid of losing my mind.
Day 1: no tobacco, booze, weed, television or video games. Here we gooo
Gonna start this on monday :)
Today I stopped procrastinating and recorded some videos of myself and wrote a blog post on my website which should be up and running in the near future
