My Life Mission: The Constraint-Free Manifesto

Last post, I showed you the reason why I made this blog.

Now I’ll show you the intent of this blog.

It took me a couple of weeks but I finally found what my blog is about moving forwards.

I’ve been trying to connect three concepts together.
-Eliminate fear
-Create possibilities
-Contribute to the world.

All three form a feedback loop.

If you eliminate fear, you can make possibilities.
If you make possibilities, you can contribute to the world.
If you contribute to the world, you can help others eliminate their doubts.

So here’s how I’ll do that. I’ll be doing it through my artwork.

It isn’t the type you see in museums or hear on your ipod.

My artwork is human interaction and testing the limits of that interaction. My canvas is through those interactions, whether it’s a fleeting moment in time or a permanent friend.

My blog combines those elements of eliminating fear (becoming constraint-free), creating possibilities (because through repeated exposure, constraints will have no effect on me), and contributing to the world (to help others be constraint-free too.)

When you create all three of those elements together, life is truly constraint-free.

For example, when you connect with someone, there’s positive energy that is transferred between the two people.

That positive energy creates momentum.

So if person A and person B both got positive feedback on their visions, then it would reinforce them to actually do them. Then when A and B actually execute their visions it can inspire persons C, D, E, and F to get inspiration to do their visions and so forth.

I want to be that person who can create that ignition to help others towards their goals.

I’ll do it via the path of talking to strangers, doing my experiments, or making the difference I can in the world.

Those little ignition points of positivity could net a huge difference in the long-term. Even if they don’t, I made a difference to that one person.

But isn’t human interaction a dependent median? What if those people don’t want to talk to you?

I did my best to learn to not take it personally through my rejections.

I’m in full support of humanity.

The rest is about crushing the social barriers.

Why is this my ultimate passion?

I could help myself, help others, and create connections with others all in one. The 3 in 1 deal. The constraint-free deal.

I can take away my limits, other people’s limits, and create an open mind for more people.

Here’s the ultimate kicker: Since I get to do that, I get to figure out people’s core passion if they want to share it to me.

If I could hear everyone’s passion, then I’ve lived an infinite number of lives that I couldn’t have the time for.
-The countless number of different things that people do.
-The countless number of activities that people do.

There aren’t enough 10,000 hours in our lifetimes to master every skill.
But there are enough hours for me to speak to many people coming from many different backgrounds doing many amazing things.

So here’s to living!

Thanks! When you push yourself to face your fears, the worst that can happen is that you gain experience and learn. The best that can happen has no limits if you don't let fear give you a limit.

i think you're "killing it" or wait.. is it "crushing it"!?! sigh. i'm so uncool ;) but anyway, i love how you/this blog has come along and i love the ideas you're having! you inspire me to keep pushing my blog.. i'm still 'coming of age' ;P

The introspection of the introvert can make crazy ideas just pop along. But it did take a lot of time trying to create it. I had to think, write, think more, and write more. Keep pushing your blog. The worse that can happen is you're writing posts and helping yourself figure out where you want to go with your blog.

I so admire (and kind of envy) this mission. I used to have a section on my blog called "Acts of Awesomeness" that were along similar lines of pushing my comfort zone and conducting social experiments--but I decided it was trying to do too much and my particular focus should just be on making the Quits list the best I can. I'm really excited to see what you've got in store here. You really do have a unique and compelling idea for this blog that sets you apart from other blogs out there. No wonder Benny put you on that Top 40 to Follow post. :)

Hey Cordelia! No need to envy it! Whenever you have the time, you could always add it back or do one every so often ;) But I know how you feel. I have a bucket list tab thing as well and I am not sure if I should keep it because it doesn't have much to do with the social comfort zone stuff. But your Quits list is amazing, I always look forward to see new Quits from you :) Thanks for the kind words. It's a risk I'm willing to take...to not be that crazy adventurer and be more of a social experimenter. But some people like yourself resonate, then I've done the right thing. That top 40 post is still legendary and I'm so glad you were one of the 40 as well :)

I really like how unique you are. You are always trying to improve yourself and be better. Always testing yourself and experimenting new things. You are an example not only in the blogosphere but also in life.

I second that. I think it's more of the combination of always looking for that next level coupled with the willingness to do good to others that is inspiring. Neither one of these alone works that well.

Hey Hugo, Thanks for the positive comment. I had to sit back and think about what I wanted to do. Then it became clear to me. Now that I've figured out the concept, it's time to actually go out and do it.
