Take a Chance

You know that thing deep inside that you really want to do?  Yes, that one.  What is stopping you from doing it?

Are you worried that it may not work out?  That the risk is too high? Or that you just aren’t ready?

We don’t take enough chances in life.   We have dreams, desires and wishes that die inside us.   The truth is that we have everything we need right now to achieve our wildest dreams.  All we need to do is make a plan and take action.  But we don’t do it.  We don’t cross that line between where we are now and where we want to be.

What stops us from taking that chance?  In order to get what we’ve never gotten we must do what we’ve never done.  That means venturing outside of our comfy zone and doing things that make us feel uneasy. 

We want security.  We like knowing what’s going to happen, even if it’s not our ideal situation.  A regular paycheck feels good.  A relationship that isn’t working is better than no relationship at all.  Our desire for certainty makes us feel safe, but it also kills our dreams.

You have to take your first step in faith, even when you don’t see the whole staircase.  You have to accept that you don’t know exactly how or when you will get there or what it will look like when you do.

You are embarking on a journey and you will be experimenting along the way.   You will fail, learn and grow.  You will be frustrated, afraid and at times wonder if you made the right decision.  It’s all part of the process.

Focus on the desired outcome and expect to be successful.  Weather the storms and don’t give up.
jump and build your wingsThat dream is inside you because it is possible.  Now is the time to believe in yourself and go for it.

It may not be easy, but it will be worth it.

The only way to get what you want in life is by taking a risk.  You will not achieve your dreams by playing it safe.   Being reasonable will get you nowhere.

Take a chance…. Leap and build your wings on the way down.  Your destiny awaits!
