The third declaration refers to the inner demons within us that try to destroy our progress towards our dreams. You can recognise the demons within yourself when you let negative thoughts start to feed doubts. Insecurities, fears and worry begin to mount up and you second guess yourself. Maybe you try to delay your action until you can be more sure, procrastinating until tomorrow, and tomorrow and tomorrow. The biggest demon of all is division, when you forget the divine oneness, that we are all connected to one another.
These demons lurk within us all, but with diligence and presence we can see when they are taking the lead. We can easily overcome all of these aspects if we take courageous action, with faith that we can reach our dreams. Brendon reminds us that the most powerful weapon against our inner demons is love.
“Love is always the final and most complete cure to our inner demons.” – Brendon Burchard
Declaration 4 – We Shall Advance With Abandon
“Cowards die many times before their deaths; The valiant never taste of death but once.” – William Shakespeare, Julius Caesar
This step requires us to build some self discipline. Huge chunks of the population do not strive to attain their dreams because of some inconvenience that stands it their way. We have said many times on The Good Human that most people appear to be sleepwalking – maybe through no fault of their own when we consider the dumbing down and numbing that takes place to keep us within a low frequency. Burchard implores us to get up and advance ourselves, to stop plodding along aimlessly.
We do not need permission, nor all of the answers, nor perfect timing. We can rely on ourselves, we have everything we need and only need to take the first step today. Then tomorrow we can take the next, and the next. It is okay to behave in a way that society considers reckless. Think of your most inspirational achiever – I can bet that they did not simply follow societal norms in order to get where they are today.
