"The person who gets the farthest is generally the one who is willing to do and dare. The sure-thing boat never gets far from shore."
~ Dale Carnegie
If you are looking for a "sure thing," you are likely to miss out on your dreams and the possibilities life has to offer you. In order to grab what you want from your life, you need to be willing to take action--to do--as well as to take a chance--to dare. There is no way of controlling everything, and in order to move forward, you often must leave the comfort of where you are. You have to be willing to let go the sure thing and the comfort it offers and be willing to take that leap of faith that you can do what needs to be done to get you what you want in your life. Taking chances and taking action are the only way to move yourself forward.
This week: Examine your current situation. Are you moving forward the way you would like to? Is something holding you back? Evaluate whether you are taking the actions necessary to get you where you really want to go in your life. Are you having trouble taking the chances you need to? Are you hoping that "life the way you want it" will be a sure thing? If you are stuck hoping for a sure thing, determine what sorts of risks you will need to be able to take in order to move forward. What needs to happen for you to be willing to "do and dare?" Once you have figured this out, decide if you are willing to do what is necessary. You don't have to do it yet, but begin to figure out ways to take SMALL STEPS to more yourself forward.
