There comes a time to throw down

You know a lot of the time we are saving up things for an event, action, time or place somewhere in the future... whether we are trying to save time, money, energy or whatever... it always seems people are waiting... Trying some big artistic or filMIC venture is scary and will probably eat up all your time, money and energy... So I can see why people hesitate to jump in...

I used to mosh a lot when I was younger....  you stand at the side of "the pit" it seems chaotic and dangerous...certainly too fast for you to jump in without getting hurt or something... you can wait and wait for a perfect looking moment when it seems like theres enough of a gap but IT NEVER COMES... you just have to make a decision and jump in anyway... you'll get thrashed around for a bit but after you get centered you'll do the thrashing IF you have readily prepared your core skills/abilities for such a venture ^ ^

With art/film life... it always seems like people are waiting for that "safe" gap that never comes... There comes a time after you have been waiting on the side for awhile when you just need to GO FOR IT... YOU NEED TO THROW DOWN!!!  Because if you wait for too long YOUR LIFE WILL BE OVER then what? Yeh your safe but WHAT WAS LIFE FOR?! To simply survive and be safe? Or to at least do your best and GO ALL OUT FOR SOMETHING SOME TIME! Too many people are too afraid to THROW DOWN yeh I mean what is the money for? So you can retire er some shit? Then what? Sit around and die? Thats the way to create REGRET and thats the worse thing that could ever happen if you ask meH.... COULD OF, WOULD OF, SHOULD OF... FUCK THAT don't lean on those things! Kick them in the FACE and throw down whilst everyone around you is cowering in fear...thats what a real hero does! Discover your inner hero and act accordingly...see the "Power of Myth" some where to discover this within you...

I was listening to the Accidental Creative podcast last week and Seth Godin was on talking about his new book "The Linchpin"

He was saying that the part of our brain that we needed for survival is the one that stops us from being great in life... its the part that creates the fear of "what if" Its the thing we need to fight to do great things in life... BECAUSE if your held back by fear and survival instincts you will never escape the prison of MEDIOCRITY because you will NEVER throw it down! YOu will NEVER GO ALL OUT! Now EVERYONE around you might be teh BETCH of they reptilian brain but that doesn't mean you have tO be!

So if you've been waiting or saving up to do something for a while and you are starting to feel stagnant or uninspired that probably means you NEED TO THROW IT DOWN! I'm throwing it down on HSM.... spending all my time, money, and energy and then some... because if not NOW then WHEN!?!?! Your life is made up of what you do TODAY and in the REAL FUTURE not some ideal imaginary future that is just going to magically come about through you waiting and worrying...

I know SO MANY PEOPLE that just need to throw down...I also know a lot of people who threw down too soon... so theres a fine line... as with anything its all about timing... being in sync... being on your path... if you doES that you will know when the time is right and YOU WILL NOT hesitate! ^ ^
