There is a remarkable minority quietly taking over the World. Art. Commerce. T echnology. Children of the continent are setting the pace for the future. This is a good time to be in Africa.
Yet in contrast, we now have more than ever before, more sad, unhappy, unfulfilled, frustrated, addicted people, both among the wealthy and poor alike.

Are there people destined to unhappiness and unfulfilment?


What are those who are living remarkably doing that the rest arent?

Theres a particular place in the World that God created for you to plug into and occupy!
This is your own path to explore, your own purpose to live for. You might already know what that is. Or you might need to put in time and conscious effort to find it. And even when you do find it, your fears, your past, they might get in the way. Sometimes youll not be sure you can make it.

But you must stay determined.


YOU HAVE TO. ITS YOUR DREAM.

I dare you to BE MORE.
Go beyond your comfort zone and follow your dream. Pursue passion wherever the road leads; not settle for what is comfortable or within reach. Take every opportunity to create, be the best you can be, all God created you to be.

I dare you to DO MORE.


Go out and conquer the World and be remembered for something bold; to find your place in the World and thrive in it. Embrace new people, learn new things and enjoy every moment.

However small, I dare you to make a difference

LIVE FOR MORE THAN JUST YOURSELF.

When a seed is planted in the ground, all you can do is water it. You cannot control the sunshine, the weather or whether pests will destroy it.
You can chase your dream all-day long and still nothing happens: give business cards, network with the right people, tweet, blog, interview, knock on doors, do your hustle every day of your life. The person who both knows the purpose of your existence and the path that you should follow is He that created you.

Spend time with the dream-giver, learn to listen to His distinct voice HOLD ONTO HIM, HE KNOWS YOUR PATH BETTER THAN ANYONE ELSE.

The pursuit of your dream will most likely be the single most intense thing you will do.
Interestingly, most dreams end before they even start. Whats the #1 killer? FEAR.
Fear that youre not good enough, ready enough, or qualified enough

... That its too much work, too hard or too painful; ... That others wont understand you, or that you may lose face with family or friends;
That list goes on and on, but most common of all, is to fear that you will fail. But we wouldnt want to accept were afraid...

logical sense, that help us feel better about not doing what we know we need to. For example, I dont have enough capital or I dont know the right people or I have a family now.

So we make excuses. Explanations that most times actually make

Instead we say, I am going to; Im just going to start tomorrow. Or when I have enough money/experience or (insert other excuse).

Then we procrastinate. We dont tell ourselves, Im never going to.

Finally we settle for less. Eventually its so much easier to just


settle for whats less risky, more widely acceptable or perhaps much more familiar.

And, fear wins.

I want to offer you TWO THINGS:
to take with you on your journey. Perhaps the two best things anyone could possibly give you

1. 2.

A reminder that youre strong enough to go out and live your dream.
You can live your God-given dream. No matter what anybody says, do not stop believing. It may not always be smooth, but itll be the best decision you ever make.

A space to connect with others who are following their dreams.


Personally, I learn best from people I can relate to. Men and women who are going beyond their comfort zone, to be all God created them to be. You are not alone.

Our forefathers, perhaps during one of those wisdom-laden folk-story evenings by the fire, said:

the easiest way to go anywhere is to find someone a few steps ahead and follow them

At DareToFearLESS. we tell real-life African stories of remarkable lives across the continent to share wisdom on life, love, happiness and living remarkably.

We all have moments of retrospect.
Moments to evaluate where we are in relation to where we need to be. This can be a scary and dark place and most times were afraid we might not like what we see. Were wrong if we think were the only ones struggling with fear. Everyone who has a body experiences fear. We dont stop to fear; we face it, we learn to master it and then we step out despite fear.
courage | krd [noun]

the ability to do something that frightens one;

FearLESS is not the absence of fear. Rather, despite of it.
