So I had a great Sunday yesterday.
I took part in another battle. Woo!
That’s me and my two team mates up there. Our team was called… We Came to Smoke Bitches.
We smoked like three rounds worth and then got smoked ourselves.
But it was all good. It was all good fun.
We Came to Smoke Bitches was a random team which was created like a week and a half before. We only met up to practice once. And that was the first time I met one of them (the guy in black).
I figured I jumped in and took part in the battle to increase my experience.
Normally I’d be all nervous and shit before a battle. It was unnerving to watch so many other dope bboys and dancers around. It was very easy to keep second guessing yourself. It was also very easy to be taken over by fear, that you’d screw up non-stop.
But this, I was like, “Okay fuck this” and went all out.
I stopped thinking. I let loose. I let it go. And did my best.
Of course, some feelings of nervousness remained, but then I kept quieting my mind. Anytime I caught myself thinking, I said “Fuck it.”
That’s all. Seriously.
That’s how you can get out of your comfort zone.
All the thinking, rationalizing, analyzing and weighing your pros and cons and shit? Fuck that.
Sometimes, it’s just time to say, “Fuck it”. And do whatever the fuck you want.
This is where the art of, “Faking it till you make it” comes from.
Yep, faking it till you make it works. It may sound like a bloody cliché and it may sound… fake, but it works.
Hear me out. When you fake it to make it? You know what happens?
You’re allowing your body and mind to do the shit you always held back from doing. When that happens, you’re essentially doing everything that is actually possible.
The only trick is to allow yourself to realize you’re full capable of pulling that shit off.
The only trick is to look forward and stop going back to second guess yourself.
The only trick is to realize that the mind is powerful. It’s powerful enough to always hold you back from being awesome (which is what 99% of the world is doing). But being in that 1%, really isn’t that hard.
You got to be like, “Hey, I didn’t feel ready to do this, but I did it anyway! It’s weird. But… I DID IT ANYWAY!”
Fuck it. Go do something. That’s why I don’t even want to write any more for this post. Stop reading it actually. Just fuck it.
BAM! Books galore to help you fuck it and get out of your comfort zone.
Anyone had any good times of saying, “Fuck it!”????
Let me know!
