"LIFE is on the other side of fear"
It seems clear to all of us that depending on what we decide at a certain moment, our future will go in one or the other direction ... It is a linear and deterministic thinking concept that we have all accepted and therefore we have not questioned again. If I do not study to be a pilot, I will never be at the controls of an airplane. But there is another possible paradigm that allows us to reflect and deepen not on how our decisions determine our future, but on how they TRANSFORM a future that already existed in our present. Imagine now that since childhood, we have dreamed that when we were adults, we would be airline pilots. We saw each other in uniform, talking to passengers, traveling the world, etc ... That future was already in us !! It was already a certain and possible future in our present. But at the moment we had to start studying the pilot career, our family, friends, told us that this was not realistic, that it was very difficult, that we would not get it, etc ... and we believed it. We were afraid, and we left ... We just TRANSFORM the future that had to be in another. We were never pilots, even though that possible future was already in us forever. And it is the fear of fear, the fear of failure, ridicule, fear of rejection, fear of trust, the one that prevents us many times in our life from reaching where they were already waiting for us. The audiovisual and virtual reality can allow us to visualize and anticipate that future that was ours, help us overcome our fears and give us the conscience and the tools to achieve it.
