Moderation is for Cowards

Have you ever come across a quote that hits you right in the soul? It resonates so deeply that it takes days to fully process its meaning. Well, recently I stumbled upon one such quote: “Anything in life worth doing is worth overdoing; moderation is for cowards.” I can’t recall the author or where I heard it, but it instantly reminded me of another powerful saying by Hunter S. Thompson: “Anything worth doing is worth doing well.” And let’s not forget the inspiring words of David Goggins, urging us to choose uncommon paths among uncommon people. However, my personal favorite comes from Philippians 4:8: “Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think on these things.”

Giving It Our All

There’s something truly remarkable about giving our all to achieve what we desire in life. It’s about pouring our best effort and energy into our endeavors. Personally, I have a spirit of excellence that drives me. Half-hearted efforts have no place in my psyche. You could call me an A-type personality, OCD, or an over-thinker, but those labels are irrelevant. What truly defines me at my core is that I refuse to be a coward.

Sure, I have fears. Fear of failure, fear of disappointment, fear of judgment. I fear not being enough or being too much. But fear does not control me. Fear does not stop me. It might be true that everyone experiences fear in various aspects of life, but what sets us apart is our willingness to face those fears head-on. Moderation is for cowards.

The Moderation Coward

Cowards, they lie to themselves and everyone around them. They live in a fairy-tale, smoking their peace pipes while burying their heads in the sands of modern philosophy. They make excuses and settle for mediocrity. As Albert Einstein once said, “The world is a dangerous place, not because of those who do evil, but because of those who look on and do nothing.”

Hate is undoubtedly a destructive force, and the hatred that exists in our world breaks my heart. But, believe it or not, hate is better than indifference. Indifference is the cruelest emotion of all. Indifference doesn’t care. At least hate is filled with passion. It’s those who are indifferent, who don’t care or fear feeling emotions, love, or passion, those who approach everything with mediocrity and moderation—they are the true cowards. They are no more than yellow-bellied sap-sucking woodpeckers, making noise but effecting no change. They are nothing but a nuisance and a waste of space.

Embrace Excellence and Be Uncommon

I have no time, patience, or respect for moderation cowards. I don’t care what they do in life, but whatever it may be, it should be pursued with excellence, wholeheartedly and without reservation. Overdo it, do it well, and be uncommon. Make things happen, or step aside and make way for the real heroes. Take chances, dare to jump, fight the good fight, and seize opportunities. Life’s breadcrumbs are not worth fighting over. As for me, I am a warrior, and I aim to surround myself with fellow warriors who, like me, refuse to accept mediocrity.

Till next time,
