What are you willing to risk to live your life at the highest level?
No one goes from ordinary to extraordinary without taking a risk. Some put financial security on the line. Others, physical safety. For the majority of us, it is the little things that stop us from moving towards excellency.
We don’t want to offend anyone. Our spouse may not like it. Too much time and energy focused on our dreams instead of on our families. There is the risk of embarrassment, failure, loss of friends, having the spotlight put on us when we feel more comfortable in the shadows. All seeming too steep a price to pay for a slim chance at being the person you see in your dreams.
But, what if we try and fail and get humiliated and lose friends and feel uncomfortable and we are still okay? What if we then try again and get a little closer to where we want to go? What if the best thing to do for our family is to show them how to follow your dreams? What if new friends come into our lives to cheer us on and make us feel invincible? What if we start feeling sort of comfortable in the light, enough to start speaking without sweaty palms and a tremble in our voice?
Most importantly, what happens when you realize that the only fatal mistake you can make is to not go after your dreams, that to live your life playing it safe is ultimately a fail?
Everyday has a new opportunity to go for it. Don’t let it pass you by today!
You can do it.
I am living proof.
