I’m sure much like myself you have sat down at some point in your life and written out your goals. You’ve looked at them and then did nothing. Fear of the unknown is quite scary. It can be down right crippling sometimes and keep us from going after our dreams. But what is it that we’re afraid of? The number one thing that comes to mind is “failure”. We fear that we will fail and all of the people that never believed in us will laugh and say, “I told you so”.
What if we couldn’t fail? I know there is always a possibility of failure and that’s fine but lets talk hypothetically for a moment. What if we couldn’t fail and we knew it? Then what? Would we then go for what we want? Would our hopes and dreams seem easier to grasp? If we felt like we couldn’t fail then we would get off our asses and make life happen. That’s what I think. So let’s throw caution to the wind, tell fear to take a hike and ignore the naysayers.
Starting today lets do at least one thing that will get us closer to our goals. We’ll take baby steps together and we will not be afraid because failure is not an option.
