"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do."
Just once. How many times have we uttered that all too familiar phrase? More than just once, that's for sure. Fact is the majority of us have more than a few things we wished we would have tried just once in our lifetimes... but didn't. For one reason or another, we didn't have the courage to just give it a shot, to give it a try, to just go for broke and let it rip.
Many of us go to our graves with lifelong dreams left undone and lifetime goals left unfinished because we never even tried to make them happen... just once. A lifetime of wishing we had done this just once, but didn't. A lifetime of wishing we had tried that just once, but couldn't. A lifetime of too much said and too little done left in our wake, our limitless promise and unfulfilled potential sadly laid to rest.
"Life is not lost by dying; life is lost minute by minute, day by dragging day, in all the thousand small uncaring ways."
Stephen Vincent Benet
A lifetime of unfulfilled hopes having vanished right before our eyes because we never stepped forward... just once. A lifetime of unlimited opportunity never realized because we never had the audacity to live life to the hilt... just once. A lifetime of could have, should have, wished we would have done all sorts of things but didn't... just once.
Is this the legacy you want to leave behind, a lifetime dotted with near misses, never really tasting the best life has to offer? Do you really want to reach the end of the line knowing you never reached out and gave it your very best shot... just once? Of course not.
"Life is a great big canvas and you should throw all the paint on it you can."
What is it that holds so many of us back, that keeps us from reaching deep down inside and giving our best, that prevents us from laying it all on the line... just once? Are we so scared of losing that we hold ourselves back a little, maybe even a lot? Or are we so afraid of the unknown, the unfamiliar that awaits out there, that we choose to stay right where we are now? I guess it depends on who you ask.
But let's talk about you. Are there some things you really want to experience but lack the courage to try... just once? And are there some ideas that you would like to pursue right now but you lack the nerve to give them a fling... just once? If you never, ever reach down and give life the very best you have to offer, what's going to become of your dreams, aspirations and most cherished of goals? They are going to slowly but surely slip away and slip out of sight.
"It's not what you do once in a while, it's what you do day in and day out that makes the difference."
Just once... you need to stop playing it safe and take some risks and see what happens. You may be astonished at what you can accomplish when you throw caution to the wind and just do what you have always wanted to do. Stop worrying and fretting about what might happen should you fall down or falter along the way. If you fall down, get up. If you falter, refocus. As long as you get moving and keep moving towards the attainment of your goals, you will generate a surge of positive paced momentum that cannot be stopped.
Just once... you need to boldly go where you have always dreamed of going; for it is the only way you can make your life what is destined to become. Just once... you must dare to be what you have always wanted to be; for it is the only way to fulfill your rendezvous with destiny. And just once... you need to throw your entire heart and soul into the relentless pursuit of your dreams, leaving absolutely nothing left in your gas tank.
That's right, you have got to give it everything you've got and keep on giving it until you get where you have always dreamed you could go. This is your time, this is your place. You CAN have, do and be anything and everything you have imagined. It's right there, well within your reach. You simply need to reach out and grab them... just once.
