Mastin interviews Gabby Bernstein about how she turned rock bottom into her life's purpose! → Check it out!

If you're doing it right, you are going to be totally scared!

The great lesson of life is being able to dive HEAD FIRST into the unknown with the faith that all is working out for your best interest. The unknown is where EVERYTHING that you truly desire resides! It’s true.

No one you know who has achieved anything worthwhile has done so with the certainty that they were going to make it. This is why life is both a MYSTERY and an adventure.

The question truly is, are you going to say YES to the adventure, or not?

I think I have been more scared this year than any other year of my life. There’s been so much expansion, which is RAD – but it’s REALLY forced me to take a huge dive into the unknown. All these things that are so rad that are happening in my life are firsts… and it’s a LEAP into the unknown. I have no idea if the book I’m writing for Hay House is gonna be any good; I have NO idea if the series I am doing with AirBnb is going to be any good; I have NO idea if people are going to like what I have to say at Marie Forleo’s “Rich, Happy, Hot LIVE” in NYC or at the Hay House Ignite conference in NYC. When I do online courses, I have no idea if they will ever make a profit. I have ZERO control over my mentoring clients and if they choose to stay or go.

All that I do I do every day facing the unknown with a smile. I believe that The Uni-verse has my back and as long as I am adding amazing value to the world, then value will be provided back to me.

It was really scary and hard to get to this point, and it’s still scary and hard. There’s no certainty that anything will keep going the way that it has. And, I tell you what, it’s REALLY scary. And at the same time, I would have it NO other way! This IS the adventure of life and it’s what we are being called out into.

It’s time to face the unknown with a smile and with the faith that your gift WILL sustain you as you add value to the lives of others. The Uni-verse LOVES to support a GIVER and someone who makes the world a better place. It’s hard to trust this when we’ve never tried, I am still not quite used to it, but it’s getting easier.

Also, when we face the unknown, we are always on our toes and forced to be more creative and work from a place of hunger. That hunger and creativity, combined with the genuine desire to serve is the magical formula for innovation and creating a life lived on YOUR terms.

So – what uncertainty can you face today and how can you add value to the lives of others? Leave a comment on the blog and let me know!

Love from London!

    Love that, Mastin! Your comments about creativity, innovation, diving head first into the unknown and saying yes to the adventure remind me of improvisation – I’m a member of a comedy improvisation troupe, and I find that the principles of improv (including “Yes, and…” and “Make your team-mates look good”) apply beautifully to life and business.

    • http://www.facebook.com/mastinkipp Mastin Kipp

      yes Kay! exactly! so how are you applying this in your life?

      • http://twitter.com/kayross Kay Ross

        On good days (and not every day is a good day), I remember to say “Yes, and…” to whatever is showing up in my life and my business. I jump in boldly, make a choice and take action, even if I don’t know and can’t control what’s going to happen next. Then I listen for the world’s response, and take a new action. Specifically, in my life and business right now (I’m a marketing consultant/trainer, an editor and a copywriter), I’m exploring ways to offer a new service: leading corporate training workshops using  “applied improv”, i.e., using the principles and processes of improv to help people and companies to develop skills in leadership, teamwork, communication, creativity,  dealing with change and complexity and uncertainty… That’s certainly a big adventure!

    Mastin, thank you this post. I am up at 3:30am and scared, scared of what I’m working toward and your post was perfect for me to read. I am now gratefully feeling connected, smiling and giving you a virtual high five. I’m headed to London August 25th with a accredited journalist hat and coat on to report to the world of the Paralympic Games. I have been an athlete in the Games many times and know the mystery that surrounds these Games and the athletes with disabilities that abound in these Games. I know now is the time to pull back the curtain of separation with my writing to reveal the truth of connection. I trust that the Uni-verse has my back, as I have trusted before when I leapt off the high dive of my life and learned how to swim on the way toward the water. I will add value to these athletes quests and to my readers lives as I take my first crack at this kind of writing and I’m scared. xo In Joy Candace

    • http://www.facebook.com/mastinkipp Mastin Kipp

      wow, that is truly amazing Candace! Just remember, there is no where where the Uni-verse or Divine is not. See a bond w/ every person you meet. Howexciting! I just got back from London, it’s MAGICAL!

    It’s like you know what’s going on in my life! This post is so perfect for me and so certain in every way. 

    I’m struggling with making a life changing decision. I’m afraid of the change and the uncertainy of being successfull. Even though this big life event can’t happen until 1 year from now. Now is my time to decide if I’ll go for it or not. And you know what? I will. I’m going and not looking back. Thank you so much Mastin. You can’t imagine how your words mmotivate and inspire me. xoxo, GABY

    I´m afraid to become even more afraid. I dont think I can be brave enough to go through with anything if i´m scared so much because fear tells you you shouldnt do it, so I dont know if I´m making big mistakes or not.

    • http://www.facebook.com/mastinkipp Mastin Kipp

      the whole idea is to know you are going to be afraid and keep going anyways! :o)

    • http://www.magicofdreaming.com/ Philippe Tremblay

      There is what you believe is possible for you, and what is truly possible. You can accomplish great things, because the truth is that it does not matter who you think yourself to be. Fear and doubt can’t stop you, only how you choose to respond to it can. Your fear is only a reflection of your own insecurity, it says nothing about whether you can or cannot take on a particular thing. There is power in you.

    Thank you for another very inspiring read. This one was very timely for me, I’ve recently started up my own business, finally taking the plunge and saying yes yes yes all the way, but being scared every step whether it’s gonna work out, whether people are gonna like what I’m offering, etc! Now especially, I am running my first fully booked course starting on Monday and I am so excited, but scared also. Thanks for reassuring me that as long as I’m in it for the right reasons, wanting to serve, share my knowledge with the world, and add value to other people’s lives, that it’s all good! Love your work :-)

    Thank you AGAIN Mastin! For delivering the exact message I need to hear!

  • Mom

    how do you take these steps with little kids that SO much depend on you: balance of mind and emotions, time and open mind for complete chaos and unexpected situation in THEIR life?…. imagine your exact situation… but with two children 4 & 6 who are also daily experiencing their unknown world with 10 times the emotional roller coaster that we experience … and who 100% depend on you…. how?

    • http://www.facebook.com/mastinkipp Mastin Kipp

      hey there, I’m not too sure b/c I don’t have kids, but what I can say is that I believe children are like sponges and your being the example and setting the example is probably the best way to teach them.

    • Anna

      I have a child and I can tell you it isn’t easy. I spend most of my days exhausted but I keep going. Some days just slower than others. LOL! We are the example as Mastin stated. I can say I spend a lot of time exhausted because I usually do whatever I’m doing when everyone else is sleeping. That is truly my quiet time and I can hear myself think or I get up extra early. It’s gets easier as they get older and become more self-sufficient. Schedule time for them and be ok with saying, “Mommy needs some time.” We all feel guilty about doing so, but it’s needed even if it’s just to re-fuel. Keep moving towards your goals!!! Good luck to you!

    • Madelain Burgoyne

      I have a kid and although I’m lucky enough to have a child who is also supported by the father, I had to make a choice to leave because I have a bigger purpose that’s calling. 

      The uni-verse really does have a way of opening a way for you when you step out into your fears.
      Before I decided to leave or separate from hubby, I would sit up into the night, sneak inot my 3 year old’s bed room and watch his beautiful face sleep as I stared with fear and uncertainty about how things would work out.

      It’s now 5 months later since, and I couldn’t take my son with me as i left. But you know what? I had this opportunity for growth, It happened that I found a place to house share with friends just down the road from where my son lives, where I teach yoga, and this is all exactly what I need as I grow my business. A place to focus away from the chaos.

      Sure, it’s not ideal and a l ot of people judge me and call me an unfit mother turning her back on her kid, but they don’t know me. Only i really know what’s going on in my head and heart. 
      I stared fear in the face and did it anyway. I didn’t see how exactly I’d get to what i wanted but it’s now happening. I made a choice and I work with it.

      If you want something to get better… You have got to do the shitty stuff first… whatever it is.

      Good luck mom… from the other mom

    this morning i was awaken from a strange and scary dream. not like nightmare i can’t breathe scary but everything that i valued  or put effort into was no where in sight. everything that i set out to do i was late for. my insecurities were at an all time high…in the dream. There were doors i wouldn’t open, stairs that led me in circles. But in this huge space with what seemed like thousands of rooms, the colors and textures were so vivid and comforting. There was an older woman who seemed to be guiding me to see my mistakes. What scared me the most was i had let down so many people…in the dream. i hadn’t accomplished what i set out to do and got sidetracked by a beautiful Con man…in the dream. when i woke up, although totally scared out of my freaking mind, i felt like i was being shown direction….somehow… I start art school in less than 20 days practically on full scholarship at 34yrs old, moved my husband and daughter 1507 miles from home to reach my dreams of becoming a world traveling photographer. for the first time in my life iAM super scared. But i know this is what i want to do.

    Thank you for sharing your light DAILY with us – I look forward to this inspiration every morning and take my favorite “blurb” of insight and share that on Facebook, quoting YOU! You are doing wonderful work and your enthusiasm for life and striving towards your fullest potential is contagious. Thanks for keeping me inspired while I look towards leaving my corporate desk job and becoming a “lightworker” myself:-)

  • Akira Binns

    I’ve been scared for a LONG time… Scared not knowing, sun or even IF things were going to manifest for me. Scared of failing, of letting my family down or not achieving what I said I would and having everyone thinking of me as a failure and unable to accomplish my desires and goals…. As I started to focus more on what I wanted and setting goals for me to achieve what I set out to do, I have noticed that everything is more clear and things are turning around sih each new day and all for the better, because I am no longer trying to “prove” to anyone my worth, or my ability, but solely believing in what I know myself to be. Now that things are going so wonderfully I hav a new fear of what tomorrow will bring but now I face my tomorrow’s with smiles and open arms and belief that everything will work out.

    As for adding value to others lives… I listen more instead of always trying to be “right”.. I give more patience with people and let them be who they are instead of trying to fit them into a mold of who I’d like them to be, just as they all accept me for who I am. I smile more… Maybe my smile will change someone’s day for the better who wasn’t having such a good day. This is only he beginning…

    Hi Mastin. I just got the job of my dreams today. I started as a volunteer & every day I would say to the Uni-verse ‘I love this work. I wish they would give me a job already.’ And today, they did! I’m scared. I don’t know if I’ll be any good at it. I have to learn new scary systems. I have to do things I have never done before. Despite all this fear, I’m going to try it anyway. Thank you for TDL. It is my daily inspiration & reminder of why I’m here to do what I have to do. Lots of love from Sydney, Australia.

    Thanks for this reminder on a day I don’t feel so great !  Today I’m going to face what I feel and accept that my body and emotions hurt, and act on what matters to me. I’m goin’ to work on the product I’m developping, I have some new directions, I like where it’s going. I’m probably goin’ to question myself as what I really need, as I do every other day to be sure I’m living in alignment with my deepest needs and desires. 

    I want to share something I posted on my twitter (my own words), which I think is related to the message of your post:  “Drink from the unknown, it’s nourishment.”And I just had my first coaching session with someone (I’m doing the coaching), between the time I started writing this comment and me ending it. It went great. The person did receive something from the session, which is good. :) I’m looking forward to see what kind of an impact it will have made with time.

    Thanks for this reminder on a day I don’t feel so great !  Today I’m going to face what I feel and accept that my body and emotions hurt, and act on what matters to me. I’m goin’ to work on the product I’m developping, I have some new directions, I like where it’s going. I’m probably goin’ to question myself as what I really need, as I do every other day to be sure I’m living in alignment with my deepest needs and desires.

    I have recently experienced so much change and unknown, that frankly a little “known” is good for the soul. Each day a MAJOR life change seems to be happening and spinning me out of control. I love your posts and they are inspirational, but sometimes the universe seems to be throwing lemons at us. I do try to look for the lesson, or what I can benefit from the new experience. I would have preferred to not be learning about divorce, elder care and family challenges all at once though.  I cant handle anymore lemonaid!!

    Great message Mastin, you are saying what most of us are experiencing but perhaps can’t really explain or put into words like you so magically do.  I believe you are speaking truth when you say, ”
    The Uni-verse LOVES to support a GIVER and someone who makes the world a better place.”  The challenge for me is to stay the course when others take advantage of your giving.  It’s hard to not feel hurt or taken advantage of.  I’m not saying I gave with the expectation to receive something.  I’m talking about you deliver your services and even go beyond what you signed up to give and some people just walk all over you leaving you empty handed and not honoring their obligations.  It’s hard to pick yourself up, try not to have negativity about the situation and WANT to help the next person hoping you’re not wasting your time just to prepare yourself for another let down.  All I can do is be true to myself and treat others the way I hope they would treat me back.  Not always easy.

    Hey Mastin-I am a 52 year old woman struggling to find my souls’ purpose. This message was great and really struck a chord with me. I suffer from a panic and anxiety disorder which can at times freeze me in my tracks. I am trying to forge ahead and jump into things that would normally make me shiver. I believe the UNi-verse has a plan for me and am trying hard not to live every day in fear-hard at best. But I know it can be done! Thanks again for the supportive message! Mary

    Greetings Mastin, I have no idea how I’m going to get the money to move to my dream city and start my career..I’m soooo scared cause I have failed in the past in many attempts to move, but they never worked. It feels very different this time around, and have a very scary feeling. But I know I will be taken care of. Thank You For Your Continuous Inspiration!

    I’m so glad I stumbled upon this article this morning.  I recently got an offer of acceptance for a masters in another city here in Canada.  I have a three year old son who mainly lives with me but also stays with his father.  After his father did not give me permission to leave with our son and offered to stay with him, I decided to take the offer anyway, and travel as often as I can.  Now I am two weeks away from leaving and it is really scary.  My life is really going to change for the next two years.  But I believe that only a positive experience can come out of this.  And when I am finished I will be a professional and provide a better life for my son.  Thank you for this article.

    Oh man I love this! 
    In Feb this year I quit my full time job (as a graphic designer), to go full time freelance, and start living the life I want to. It’s been incredibly scary ever since that last day, but I’m with you, thats how it should be. 
    It still scares the shit out of me every day, wether I’ll be able to make it work, wether I’ll be able to make enough money, wether I’ll be able to travel the world & freelance as I go… 
    But that’s all part of the adventure! Getting out of your comfort zone and facing those fears. 

    So I’m just focusing on doing the absolute best work I can, and aiming for awesomeness instead of perfection. Just constantly upping my game at every turn… That’s how I’m rolling from now on! 

    Thanks heaps again for this. Nice reminder. ;)

    I can’t even begin to express how much I need this right now. Thank you for the message of faith, and remind us to trust in the process and go through it all with a big smile! Thank you Mastin! :)

    Hey Mastin! Thank you for the Daily Love. Here’s a very practical suggestion for you with regard to your back – get the book “Pain Free” by Pete Egoscue, and find a practitioner. His method of postural alignment has helped me (in a very short time) with a knee problem that chiropractic and conventional therapy were unsuccessful with. More information also at Egoscue.com.
