"You don't have to be great to start, but you have to start to be great." Joe Sabah
You'd love to try it, to get out there and see what you can accomplish.
You'd like to chance it, to buck the odds and really go for it with everything you've got.
You'd love to throw caution to the wind and go get the things you really want to have, see and be; to give life your very best shot.
But you don't.
Sound a little too familiar?
Many of us play and replay these scenes day after day. Instead of getting out there and pursuing our dreams with our hearts set on fire, we play it safe. Rather than chasing our aspirations with all of the purpose and passion we can muster, we play life close to the vest. Even though we want to make our move and make something happen, we never fully marshal the courage to pull the trigger and let ourselves go once and for all.
"All glory comes from daring to begin." Eugene F. Ware
When it comes to living, most of us never really push ourselves to the max; never truly discover out how far we can go. Truth be told, we never even come close. Not surprisingly, way too many of us miss out on the best life has to offer.
That's not to say we don't want to do better, because we do. We want to FEEL better, we want to BE better, we want to enjoy the best life has to offer. But our want power is frequently overpowered by our overwhelming fear of failure. We are so scared of failing or falling short (terrified may be a more accurate word), we never make our move. Instead of just going for the things we want out of life, we sit back and wait. Instead of pushing past our worries and doubts, we constantly hesitate and vacillate.
And we allow our fears to get the best of us.
Is this the way you want to go through life? Is this the legacy you want to leave behind? Is this how you want to be remembered; as a person who never pushed your limits, an individual who never gave life everything youve got? Do you really want to reach the end of your time on earth knowing you could have and should have done a whole lot better?
Or do you want to toss your fears aside and make your dreams come true?
"The distance is nothing; it's only the first step that is difficult." Marquise du Deffand
There is one and only one way to get what you want in life. And thats to go get it with everything youve got. With nothing held back, absolutely nothing left in reserve. In order to reach your desired destination, you've got to forget about what might happen if you come up short... and focus on doing your very best daily. That means concentrating your full attention and effort on doing better, getting better and yes, being better every single day.
You know what you want in life. After all, you have pictured it in your mind a thousand times over. You have felt it in your heart. you have touched it with your soul. The only thing standing between you and the life you seek is... you. So get out of your way and go make your life all it could be and more.
"The guy who takes a chance, who walks the line between the known and unknown, who is unafraid of failure, will succeed." Gordon Parks
You've got to get off of the couch. You've got to stop straddling the fence. And you've got to stop putting your life on indefinite hold.
Hey, you've got to start somewhere, why not get started right where you are today? You need to start making something happen today. Not tomorrow or next week, not when things look better or when the stars are perfectly aligned. You need to stop holding yourself back. You need to stop playing it safe. You need to stop worrying about the mistakes you may make or the difficulties you may encounter. And go make your move right here, right now.
Find something exciting, something challenging, something that really gets you goingand go get it.
You'll never really know how much you can have accomplished unless you just go do it. You'll never uncover all of the great things you can discover unless you just go find them. You'll never grow to be all that you were destined to become if you never have the courage to roll the dice and see what happens.
So what are you waiting on? Your success begins the moment you do.
The Bottom Line: The start of something great awaits.
