Aude aliquid dignum is Latin for DARE SOMETHING WORTHY…and it is the purpose of this message to show you how.
There is no purer form of success, no more exact and demanding test of what you are capable of, than to dare something worthy and find joy in the capacity to achieve it.
While we all have different goals and aspirations, we all love and benefit from doing something big—something that inspires us to reach the peak of our potential, jailbreaks us from our comfort zone, and transforms us into a better, far more capable version of ourselves.
The ultimate reason to dare something worthy is to entice you to become the person it takes to actually deliver on your dare. As you are about to find out, who you become, as well as the traits and skill sets you develop in daring something worthy, are much more important than the nature of the dare itself.
The Rewards for Daring Something Worthy
1. You Develop Mental Toughness
It’s actually pretty simple. You either rise to meet the mental demands and physical rigors of daring something worthy, or you succumb to them.
The very nature of daring something worthy sets an appropriate stage for practicing mental toughness, which by definition means a psychological edge that enables one to remain focused and confident during high-pressure situations to perform at one’s full potential.
2. You Confront and Conquer Fear
The very act of daring something worthy is unique in that it immediately engages the fight-or-flight mechanism, and you never know how you are going to react until you are faced with the fear.
If I fear it, I must do it…must become your battle cry as fear is never a reason for quitting.
It’s only an excuse for those unwilling to face their doubts, insecurities, and mental boogie man. Therefore, your first duty in daring something worthy is to conquer fear and the mental resistance it brings along with it. Get rid of it quickly, or get steamrolled by it.
If you’re ever going to dare something worthy, you must decide that what you want is BIGGER and far more important than the fear which prevents you from achieving it.
3. You Become More Courageous
Courage is the greatest resource you have when daring something worthy. What good is a worthy ideal or a big, ambitious goal if there is no willingness to overcome fear, mental and physical resistance, adversity, or self-doubt?
The conceptual opposite of courage is cowardice. We are therefore confronted with the reality that we either habitually practice courage, or we habitually practice cowardice.
4. You Get to Test Your Limits
It is imperative that you accept this reality: when you dare something worthy, you will never be the same again. You either cope or crumble. You become better or bitter. You emerge stronger or weaker.
It has to be this way, as a big worthy goal exists to tests your limits, to push you beyond the breaking point, and to separate you from the herd.
You’ll never know the full measure of your potential until you are tested. You can never be sure whether you’ll step up or falter in any given situation.
Passing the tests presented by daring something worthy proves that you are tougher, more resilient, and far more capable than you ever imagined.
5. You Intensify Your Focus
A worthy dare is like a great romance. It calls for your passion and your devotion, and it demands to be the center of your attention.
Daring something worthy is a form of seduction. It means concentrating your energy and resources on what’s most important: keeping the fire burning!
You do that by making everything count. Everything you think, say, and do must be focused on worthy goal and on leveraging all available resources.
Focus is best seen as a preemptive strike against mediocrity. The moment you dare something worthy, your goal becomes a magnet that pulls you and your resources toward it.
The more focused your energies, the more power you generate, and the sooner you will live happily ever after.
6. You Build Supreme Self-Confidence
Think of a worthy dare—any kind of challenging goal. Ask yourself, what role does self-confidence play in daring something worthy?
The fact is that no mountains can be climbed, no hearts won, no opportunities seized, no books written, no elections won, and no victories enjoyed without self-confidence.
Now think of something you fear—anything that makes you flinch. Ask yourself, what role does self-confidence play in overcoming fear?
Fear is the greatest enemy you will ever face. It impedes your ability to succeed physically, emotional, spiritually, and financially. Fear negatively impacts everything you want to be, do, and have.
The inspired ability to dare something worthy and climb great heights is directly attributable to your self-confidence. As your challenges build, so does your self-confidence.
7. You Turn Pro
Few things in life are capable of radically altering your perspective, but developing the capacity to dare something worthy not only impacts the size of your results, it transforms your mind and expands your worldview.
It changes everything. The way you walk, talk, and communicate all exude a level of self-confidence and self-assuredness that’s impossible not to notice.
Daring something worthy involves psychological trauma that induces fear, self-doubt, and insecurity, while simultaneously dislodging you from your comfort zone, ultimately bringing about a superior performance.
By daring something worthy, you are pushing yourself beyond any previously imagined comfort zone and performance standard.
You will be expected to pass tests which tempt you to quit. And you will be required to pay the high price that success demands while entering new psychological waters.
By daring something worthy, you provide yourself with undeniable proof that you have what it takes to become one of the great ones of your generation.
This proof cements in your mind that you are the type of person capable of performing great acts, and that you really can do anything you set your mind to.
Allow me to wrap this up with a close worthy of this subject…
The ultimate test of the impact of your life is twofold: whether the world you leave behind is qualitatively different from that which you inherited, and what grand contribution you made to that change.
This is the only life you’ve got, dare something worthy with the time and talents you have be gifted, and always remember that…
