This week’s prompt is: Our Hidden Modus Operandi
“Do not let what you cannot do interfere with what you can do.”
– John Wooden
“Cowards die many times before their deaths; the valiant never taste of death but once.”
– William Shakespeare
“I learned that courage was not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it. The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid, but he who conquers that fear.”
– Nelson Mandela
These are all great viewpoints quoted above, but even if they inspire us, do we really live by them? There are philosophies we love and life paths that motivate us and then there are the mental habits that we always fall back on. This week don’t write about the philosophy that you want to live by, but rather the one that you actually practice. For example, a person could say that they believe in going after what they want, and walk this world with their head held high and their chest out, but on the inside they’re always playing it safe. Forget for a moment that we are constantly trying to project who we want the world to see, and let’s talk about the philosophies that we are really operating under. Give us a glimpse of your hidden modus operandi.
