A Bundle of Powerful Maxims from Osho, Author of Courage: The Joy of Living Dangerously.
I love Osho. I read his book a couple of months ago and saw immense amounts of wisdom contained within it that certainly had potential to help me in my personal and business ventures. Being the nice guy that I am, I will share some of the love just in case you can’t make it out to your local library or purchase it. So, here are a few of his ideas to ponder on as you think about your life and why it is where it is in relation to the notion of fear. Hopefully one of these maxims will serve you in going more confidently in a direction which you feel uncertain about, or through issues which have caused you discomfort and insecurity in your personal life or business life. Enjoy!!
“Why are you afraid? What can the world do to you? People can laugh at you; it will do them good – laughter is always a medicine, …healthful”
“Commit as many mistakes as possible, remembering only one thing: don’t commit the same mistake again, and you will be growing”
“But in the beginning there is not much difference between the coward and the courageous person. The only difference is that the coward listens to his fears and follows them, and the courageous person puts them aside and goes ahead”
“Trust is the greatest intelligence, Why don’t people trust? Because they don’t trust their intelligence. They are afraid, they are afraid they may be cheated.”
“The man of understanding dies every moment to the past and is reborn again to the future. His present is always a transformation, a rebirth, a resurrection”
“A man really becomes a man when he accepts total responsibility – he is responsible for whatsoever he is. This is the first courage, the greatest courage.”
“The more alive the person, the more problems there are – But there is nothing wrong in it because struggling with problems fighting with the challenges, is how you grow”
“Don’t call it uncertainty – call it wonder. Don’t call it insecurity – call it freedom.”
So…. What are you so afraid of?
