Let us ponder those things, and see where that leads us.

The Point of Transcending
by Brian Germain Jan
When we realize something that we
don't want; when we realize something that fuels us with abject terror, or
something that repulses us and motivates us and drives us, we can launch
ourselves forward with tremendous energy, and that can break us free from
situations that are painful and unpleasant and not to our liking. We must use
this kind of energy at times, but we must also remember that beyond that
feeling there is motivation that is called "inspiration": Not the fear; not the
dread that we are going to fall into a reality that we do not like, or worse
yet despise. That kind of motivation is not the only thing that can drive human
we as a species realized, independently, and then collectively, that we wanted
to leave our planet and set foot on another world, we were not motivated by the
fear of avoiding something like running out of money, or being destroyed in
war. We decided to explore this possibility, through our connection to a dream
that was so deep-seated in our souls; so universal, across culture, that we found ourselves unified in its inception. Throughout
the species, humankind looked up toward the moon, and said: "I believe we
can go there." We said: "I don't know how we are going to go there, but I
believe we can do this."
we saw, on television, that massive rocket rumbling on the launch pad, with those
three brave people sitting on top of it; when we watched this rocket launch
itself up into space, and our hearts were touched. We were touched because this
was a brave step towards something novel; towards something far beyond the
motivation of avoiding things distasteful. This was motivation toward something
that was absolutely beautiful.
It is this kind of inspirational motivation that
we must tap ourselves into, that we must allow to become the fundamental
motivating factor that drives us forward. We must have goals that anyone could
look at and say: "This is and authentic dream. This is worth investing time and
energy in. This is creating something that matters."
point of transcending fear, and the reason why it is so essential for our people to
survive, is because when we let go of our fear, we have the ability to dream bigger, we have the ability to
look beyond "what is" into "what could be?" Whether or not we are able
transcend fear is the pivotal factor that decides whether or not we as a
species can look beyond where we have been, beyond where we are, and hope for something
more, something so far beyond where we are that only a vision could offer us a
is something in your future that will occur to you, in a moment of calmness, in
a moment of silence, in a moment of brilliance; a dream that wakes you in the
night, a vision for your personal life. You must connect with this idea. You
must write it down. You must speak it to others, and you must speak it to
yourself. Your future will change as a result of letting a vision drive you
forward, instead of simply working with "what is," building with only that
which has been, to take a dream that doesn't seem possible and invest yourself
in it, and continue to believe in it, and imagine what it would be like to have
it and allow the emotion to develop within you; to bubble up and become more
specific, then the dream will become real. This rocket of your dream will
launch. Will you be on it?
the sake of your future happiness, I beg of you, build bigger rockets. Once this rocket is launched, please, be on
your rocket. Be with your dream. Invest yourself in it, and when it is in your
consciousness, allow yourself to feel that beautiful positive emotion that
connects you with who you are on the inside. From such experiences you will
discover what is inside you. When you do not feel inspired with who you are it is
simply because you have not yet realized a dream that shows you who you are.
Or you have realized it and you let it go; you simply forgot it and returned to more mundane things.
humans have dreams. If we let our dreams be our driving factors in life, we
deserve all of the resources that we use. We deserve our footprints in the
sand; our mark on this planet. But when we walk an uninspired life, when we use the
limited resources that furnish our bodies with fuel, and our lives with energy,
we are merely taking up space. We do not need more people on this planet. We
need more inspired people.
Brian Germain is available for keynote presentations. Brian relates the topic of transcending fear to fit the needs of nearly any business or organization.
Brian is on a mission.
His goal is to teach the truth
about fear, and the means to work with this powerful emotion. Fear diminishes
our ability to think clearly, and obscures our capacity to look beyond our
initial alarmist perspective to see solutions. As a professional skydiving
instructor, Brian has seen the dangerous effects of a negative state of mind,
and now offers his secrets to converting unconscious retreat into conscious
In an age
of economic hardship, climate change and the threat of terrorism, our ability
to work with fear has become pivotal for our progress as a species. If we do
not understand what is occurring within us, we will be unable to alter our
trend toward escalation. This will inevitably lead to more poverty, illness and
unhappiness. If, however, we cultivate our ability to control our minds and
look beyond the current situation to what is possible, we will remain the best
version of ourselves. This is the way in which we will create a better future.
The positive, fresh perspective that Brian offers can bring out the optimist in
