Top 10 List?

Top Ten List?

I mentioned on my LinkedIn profile a week or so ago that I’d reveal the unacknowledged, biggest fear humans have.  And by the way, it’s simply my opinion – based on 50 years of dreaming, doing and teaching.

Still wanna know what it is?   Is the truth something we should fear?

It’s OK to be afraid.  Fear is a gift to help humans survive.   It can also paralyze us, imposing the opposite effect, and destroy our potential.

Drum roll please…………………………………..

And the number one, (and invisible), human fear of all time?

The Fear of Living!

When this was revealed to me, I discounted it.  Seriously.   I denied that I was living my life “in fear” of living.

I’ll bet a dollar that many who read this will immediately dismiss the notion.   This is exactly why I call it invisible, or unacknowledged.

That’s what I think, which actually means nothing to anyone really.   I challenge you to make up your own mind.

Here’s what I ask myself every moment of every day:  “Am I living as if I want to leave a legacy for my organization“?

The challenge at work and at home, is to figure out how to live without regret.  Not doing it, is what really scares me.  Carpe diem, jungle jeff 🙂
