It’s unnerving to know that some will always live their lives in fear. Perhaps it’s because past failures have taken precedent over tactical thinking. Or maybe because it’s less daunting to continue to live a life of complacency. Whatever the reason may be, THIS ENDS TODAY! Tell me, if you found out that you only had one week to live, would you be satisfied with all that you have accomplished? Would you be able to say that you’ve lived your best life?
Anais Nin quotes that life shrinks or expands in proportion to one’s courage. Allow this to linger as you think about how it applies to your own life. Do you understand the simplicity, yet complexity that lies in the meaning of this quote? If not, allow me to briefly explain.
You only get one life. You can live frivolously in fear, or you can proceed progressively in your purpose. The older I get the more I learn that life is about taking chances. When you learn to take chances on yourself, you discover who you are truly destined to become. Of course, sticking to the “safe side” of things feels just that…safe. And it’s supposed to! But when you dare to dream and work earnestly to ensure that those dreams actualize, you will begin to create life-changing opportunities for yourself! So, I command you to stop settling in your circumstance and indulging in inaction. You were created for more than just accepting what is!
Once you become fearless, life becomes limitless.
