Live daringly, boldly, fearlessly. Taste the relish to be found in competition in having put forth the best within you.
Henry J. Kaiser
Living daringly, boldly, fearlessly; sounds really great, doesnt it? But what is this kind of super charged living all about? For starters, it means that you are willing to roll the dice and give life your very best shot, without giving a second thought to hesitation or doubts. And that requires exhibiting a steely resolve that refuses to bend or break when the going gets rough, a dogged determination that simply will not wilt or cave under pressure.
To the surprise of many, we all possess a wellspring of wondrous willpower that can power through virtually anything tossed in our paths. Not as surprisingly, very few ever display the bravado needed to take a dare and take on the challenges life presents to us daily. After all, its a lot easier to stick one foot in the water to see if the temperature fits our fancy or to come out of hiding once the coast is clear. But is this living life in a daring or fearless fashion? Hardly.
Who dares nothing, need hope for nothing.
Johann Friedrich Von Schiller
Helen Keller, well known around the world as a symbol of courage in the face of overwhelming odds, espoused the value of living life in a bold, fearless and daring manner when she said, Life is either a daring adventure or nothing. Without question, very few worthwhile accomplishments have ever been achieved by those who refused to believe that they held within themselves something great, something powerful, something bigger than life itself.
Im sure you have heard the familiar saying Ill believe it when I see it on countless occasions. Seems like sound advice or is it? Ms. Keller, who lost her sight and hearing at the age of nineteen months, didnt have to see it to believe it. She believed anything was possible because she could FEEL it! And it was these feelings that allowed her to best the unbeatable odds and lead an almost unbelievably productive life. Even though she couldnt see it, at least not with her eyes, she left a lasting legacy that endures to this day.
Be daring, be different, be impractical, be anything that will assert integrity of purpose and imaginative vision against the play-it-safers, the creatures of the commonplace, the slaves of the ordinary.
Sir Cecil Beaton
The capacity to believe can allow each of us the opportunity to unlock the vault to a lifetime of daring, exciting, hold on to your hat adventures day after adrenaline pumping day. When you believe you can do it, nothing on earth can stop you or even slow you down. When you dare to push the envelope and beyond, you can live a limitless adventure that knows no bounds. By being daring and willing to be a bit different, you can run circles around those who choose to play it safe.
If you are not presently living that daring adventure, passionately pursuing your dreams with all of your might, Id like to issue you this dare. I dare you to knock down the barriers that have kept you in your place and replace those obstacles with a dare to be great approach to living.
It is not because things are difficult that we do not dare; it is because we do not dare that they are difficult.
Lucius Annaeus Seneca
Are you willing to consign yourself to a life of playing it close to the vest, never really knowing just how much you could have achieved if you were only willing to take a dare now and again? Wouldnt you just once love to feel the unequalled exhilaration reserved exclusively for those risk takers who took a dare and came out victorious?
Theodore Roosevelt said that it is far better is it to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checkered by failure than to rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy much nor suffer much, because they live in a gray twilight that knows not victory nor defeat. You need to dare to think big, dare to act even bigger and dare to make your biggest dreams come true. Are you up to the challenge?
Isnt it high time that you forged that lifetime of achievement, that incredible lifelong adventure that you have pictured in your mind at least a thousand times? You need to feel it, deep down where it really counts, and then get busy making it come alive. I dare you to make your life everything it could be and should be. In fact, I double dare you.
The Bottom Line: Lifes most incredible opportunities are unveiled only to the most daring among us.
