An Adventure of Balanced Courage and Fear

The creative Dennis Pitocco and his BIZCATALYST 360° Team started a new creative adventure. Dennis explained it in his post The Journey Begins: As BUCKETFEST 360° Premiers Worldwide.

In this adventure, more than 150 voices from eighteen countries share their voices in response to a singular question: “What’s On Your Bucket List?” It is the gathering of brains in one place. This adventure is more than a TED Talk with one presenter, it is a collection of presenters of different cultures covering this topic from different angles and providing a 360-degree view. To live the experience please watch the video embed below.

This effort reminds me of the visual fractal grid of Rod King. I wonder where the combination of the two adventures shall take us. One thing I am sure about is that it shall be a journey of discovery.

The other factor that urged me to write this post is the courage to initiate this new adventure. Dennis and his team must have had their fears too.

There is no courage with any fear; they coexist.

The question is how to bifurcate between the two so that fear does not paralyze you and courage does not lead you to taking extreme risks and still willing to step into the unknown.

I do not know the background of the initiative of Dennis and his team. It shall be a very interesting story to learn from. It is a story of balanced courage that I wish to discover more of its depth.

I know a similar case that made me clap with admiration. It is the case of Cara E. Yar Khan. She was told to limit her career ambitions and dial down her dreams. She ignored that advice and instead continued to pursue her biggest ambitions. Cara described her experience to discover the unknown in her Ted Talk.

Just watch this nine minutes video you shall applaud the woman and her balancing fear and courage. It is such an inspirational video to watch and learn from its wisdom.

I imagine now how rich it is if many brains share minutes of their journeys in life. The new adventure of Dennis is worthy.

  1. Fear is a feeling that everyone experiences, even the so-called heroes.
    But it is also true that there is a lot to be gained by embarking on new adventures.
    Personally, I have always considered that it is necessary to define fears in order to face them and therefore we must always ask ourselves what the price of inertia is and what is the price of action, and only then decide which one is worth paying.
    Courage is a feeling that cannot exist independently of fear. The courage to do something, the courage to say something, exist in contrast to the blocks that fear manages to insinuate, and if fear is stillness, courage is movement.
    There are many researches that have investigated the essential acceptance of risks when acting, trying to do something we are afraid to do and all have shown that fears often represent a real map that shows us exactly where we should go.
    Analyzing our thoughts at the time of choice can help us understand which beliefs affect the block we experience. So it is advisable to focus on fears, and only then on the risks we run, because we often suffer much more for our imagination than for reality.
    Wishing Dennis and his staff all the success they deserve.

    • This is a brilliant comment Aldo Delli Paoli. It reflects exactly what we need to do. Just watching the second video embed in the post adds much credibility to what you are saying here.

      Of particular importance to me is “Personally, I have always considered that it is necessary to define fears in order to face them and therefore we must always ask ourselves what the price of inertia is and what is the price of action, and only then decide which one is worth paying.”
      This is the way to us our balance and avoid going to either extremes of courage and fear. I find your comment in this respect valuable and need to be advertised on a larger scale. It is a guiding comment for all of us.

      I feel deep appreciation to you and your wisdom. Thank you.

    • “Analyzing our thoughts at the time of choice can help us understand which beliefs affect the block we experience.” This is very deep, Aldo. I think many people stop at the tension of fear, knowing that they are afraid; perhaps push through the fear because the outcome of showing courage is meaningful enough to overcome the fear, but going one layer deeper and understanding which beliefs inform the fear in the first place is meaningful and truly courageous inside work.

      I have often found that unless I understood what original service a now misplaced habit/thought pattern/hesitancy served, I may push through, but it will come up again in a different form. Until I know why it was there in the first place, can thank it for its service, and let it go – Marie Kondoing my mind.
