Take risks…….for at the end of your days it will not be the risks you took that you regret the most, it will be the risks that you didn’t take that fill your heart with remorse. It will be all of those opportunities that you didn’t seize, all of those fears you didn’t face, and all of those steps that you might have taken that would have ensured that you lived your best life. Because on the other side of fear, lies your freedom. Each new day has a past, present, and future and sometimes we lose our way with worry. The truth is you will not defeat tomorrow’s difficulties by worrying; you will only serve to drain today of its strength.
Abundance does not come from an endless search for security. It comes because we are willing to leave the safe harbour of what we know and think is secure. Because we are willing to head out into the blue ocean of life and find the gems that it has to offer, and while we may have our share of failures….those failures will teach us how to win. So what will you do today? Sit on the shores of safety or dip your toes into the water and head out for an adventure. For the moment we can do what we fear, our fear disappears.
Theodore Roosevelt said “It is not the critic who counts, not the man who points out how the strong man stumbled, or where the doer of deeds could have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly, who errs and comes short again and again, who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions, and spends himself in a worthy cause, who at best knows in the end the triumphs of high achievement and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat.”
