Awesome Is The Enemy.

Awesome is the enemy of complacency. Awesome is the enemy of comfort and satisfaction.

Awesome is the enemy of pettiness.

Awesome is the enemy of being paralyzed by fear.

Awesome is the enemy of ego and an inflated pride.

Awesome is the enemy of playing it safe.

Awesome is the enemy of willful ignorance.

Awesome is the enemy of playing it safe.

Awesome is the enemy of never getting it wrong.

Awesome is the enemy of avoiding failure.

Awesome is the enemy of doubt.

Awesome is the enemy of just trying once.

Awesome is the enemy of always having it all figured out.

Awesome is the enemy of negativity.

Awesome is the enemy of most things that come naturally. Your weak moments. Your tired moments. Your automatic responses when you feel threatened, discouraged, or hurt.

What comes easily is to avoid doing the awesome thing.

It just happens. Because that’s how you’re wired.

Awesome is the enemy. It’s also everything you’ve ever been looking for.
