Happy Monday my friends,
Throughout our lives we all have probably been challenged to take a leap of faith and try something new. We go through our day, almost mechanically, with our same routines. But in order to grow and possibly help make this world a better place, we need to take that step and give it the best we have. It may be a bit uncomfortable or even cause some anxiety but you will never know how much more capable of things you are unless you take that leap.
A LEAP IN THE DARK
“All growth is a leap in the dark, a spontaneous, unpremeditated act without benefit of experience.” (Henry Miller)
Our experience helps us make wise choices, and making wiser choices allows us to take fewer risks. But we stagnate unless we take an occasional leap in the dark-without planning for it, without analyzing it in advance. We don’t know exactly where we’re going to land. We just know we have to reach out, take a chance and see what happens.
NOTE TO SELF:
I’m generally cautious, and that’s a good thing. But I recognize that sometimes I just have to go ahead and try something new. Even if things don’t go well, I will have learned something important from taking the chance. (Linda Picone)
Outstanding leaders go out of their way to boost the self-esteem of their personnel. If people believe in themselves, it’s amazing what they can accomplish. (Sam Walton)
Only those who will risk going too far can possibly find out how far one can go.(T.S. Eliot)
If you could hit the mark, you must aim a little above it; every arrow that flies feels the attraction of earth. (Henry Wadsworth Longfellow)
The time for action is now. It’s never too late to do something. (Carl Sandburg)
There is no such thing as failure. You either succeed or learn.(Kevin Kruse)
Wishing everyone a wonderful week,
