Everyday just like an old videocassette, hit play, rewind and repeat. We similarly settle in the vicious cycle of life, looking for the familiar and leaving dreams in the back burner. If we think, the only obstacle between your dreams and you, is fear. Therefore, Actions will overcome your terrors, not your conscious. Michelle Poler challenged herself, and embarked in the journey of living and making a habit 100 days without fear.
After leaving a stable, boring life, She decided to step out of her comfort
zone. The first footstep was to take on the challenge.That was just the beginning. First she made a list of 40 fears, and along the way they extended by the suggestions of her fans. She started to see opportunities on ongoing events, likewise. Some of the fears are:
Dance like nobody is watching
Eat spiciness food
Jump off a plane
Hold a tarantula
She epitomizes many of the fears we inherently have as humans. Many others basically are an encouragement to halt monotony. All of the dares were measured by smiley faces to show how fearful she felt before, during and after the challenge.
Most challenges we can relate very easily by the terror or simply excitement to be over, and cross it out of our list. Poler became viral by the day 46; it wasn’t planned to happen, she has expressed in many interviews. Her goal has been to live life to the fullest in order to know better herself and her limits.
