Hans Keeling worked in a law firm in Century City, Los Angeles, and he knew that he could not spend more days as a living dead. The very thought of having to do the same for 40 or 45 years startled him. He resigned one morning and founded Nexus Surf, a company based in Florian√≥polis, Brazil, dedicated to surfing and adventure tourism. Hans found that Risks They’re not that terrible when you face them, and that stopping your trip indefinitely doesn’t mean “throwing in the towel”. If you’re still not in control of your own destiny, follow these steps.

1. Define the nightmare

To do it or not? Try or not try? Most people would vote, would go for no. Uncertainty and the possibility of failure can lead to terrible noises in the shade. It is easier to choose bad luck than uncertainty. To break this, ask yourself a question: what exactly would be my nightmare, the worst thing that could happen to me if I choose to change my life course?

2. Defeat fear

Once you get rid of the restlessness and ambiguity Pain If you define the worst scenario, you will see that you can imagine the simple steps you have to take to save the situation when hell suddenly breaks loose.

You will find that on a scale of one to ten – where one is nothing and 10 is a permanent life change – your worst-case scenario would have a temporary effect of three or four. And when you get the best possible scenario, or even one of the likely ones, you have a positive and lasting change in life of nine or ten. Dare! You can risk a scenario of three improbable and temporary to get one out of nine or ten, likely and permanent.

3. Questions and actions

If you are worried about making the jump, or postponing it, answer these questions in writing: 1) What doubts, fears, and when come to mind when you think about the big changes you can make ( or must)? 2) What steps would you take to repair the damage or get things going again? 3) What are the temporary and lasting results or benefits of your likely scenarios? 4) If you were fired from work today, what would you do to regain financial control over your life? 5) What are you moving for fear? What we fear most is usually what we have to do most. 6) How much does it cost you (financially, emotionally and physically) to postpone your performance? 7) What are you waiting for? If your answer is “not time” then you are afraid just like the rest of the world.
