I Dare You

By Oscar Bruce

The world at large steals your youthful enthusiasm and unbridled confidence, piece by piece, bit by bit. Friends and relatives throw sand in your dream machine. They've conformed to the pressures to become ordinary, and insist that you do the same. They compromised by downsizing their dreams and restricting their field of vision.

I DARE YOU to free your mind from these cultural constraints. To RESIST the pressure to become ordinary. To IGNORE those who give you're their version of why you can not rise above mediocrity.

I WANT TO CHALLENGE YOU to free yourself from the shackles of your past conditioning, to break the chains that bind you to false beliefs about what you can do with your life.

I DARE YOU to aim at something worthy of the best that is in you. I maintain that you are a better, more capable person than you have experienced so far, or that others have led you to believe you are.

TODAYS PREVAILING IDEOLOGY IS NOT SELF IMPROVEMENT. It is self preservation. People no longer dream of surmounting difficulties to gain all they desire. Most people live in complete servitude to the "survival mentality". They hope merely for "coping".

I AM PROMISING YOU that living aggressively changes the whole complexion of life. Not until you dare to attack will you master your fears completely. Suddenly you step into a new world of adventure. Horizons are pushed back on all sides. Opportunities open up that were previously unseen. The sleeping giant within you is stirred and awakened. On that priceless day you will discover that have a new power, the power to rise above the lives of those around you.

CHALLENGES ARE THE STUFF OF LIFE. Going after what you want, pursuing what is important to you, these are keys to happiness. Everybody loves to be a winner, a star, a hero. Nobody wants to be a loser, a failure. Americans love to be number one.

IT IS THE BASIC NATURE OF MAN TO ACHIEVE, to explore the full potential of the human spirit. Deep down in every heart is the desire to be somebody, to get somewhere, to be respected. Every individual yearns to make something of his or her life.

NO PERSON CAN BE HAPPY unless they are expressing their inherent potential, fully and completely. A life that satisfies is impossible without a sense of achievement and fulfillment.

THE BRAIN NEEDS OBJECTIVES. Most of us begin our journey with no end in mind. Then one day we find ourselves somewhere we don't want to be and don't have a clue how we got there. Nothing diminishes a life more than having nowhere to go. A mind with idle time and nowhere to go becomes filled with contradiction and doubt. On the other hand, nothing enriches a life like being a part of something big.

THINK WHAT IT WILL MEAN TO YOU to possess the calm assurance that you are one of the few people in the world who know exactly where they are going and how they are going to get there - and that attainment is only a matter of time. That you have something to believe in, a mission that gives purpose to your life, your days filled with meaningful tasks.

I DARE YOU to think bigger, to act bigger and to become bigger and I promise you a richer life, a more exciting life. The rewards for daring in this world teeming with opportunity were never so rich or so plentiful. Science, business, education are all looking for rare individuals who dare to face life creatively and aggressively, who dare to attach, rather than to defend or compromise.


I DARE you to stop putting conditions on the words commitment and dedication. I dare you to stop putting limitations on your dreams!

"I want to just say 'WOW!' This collection is probably the best money I ever spent! I've already received many times over in personal enrichment after just 9 days. I've had a past metaphysical background, but even newcomers to this material will really benefit. Thanks again." ~ J.S. (Pennsylvania, USA)
"The collection is everything which you promised. And more! A superb contribution to the good of the world. Many thanks indeed." ~ R.P. (Georgia, USA)
"Just a short note of thanks for the library. I've only had membership for several days now but I already feel this is perhaps the most interesting compilation I have yet seen. Worth far more than the price of admission. The browser linked structure works well and makes it easy to manage such a large storehouse of information. It is rarely that I find something I like as much as this or that I feel strongly enough to write a note like this." ~ P.W. (Minnesota, USA)
