Because yes, where I want to go is against the stream. If I succeed, I will be celebrated. Still, there is the possibility of failing.
That's the risk.
In order to keep going, we need to look at our risks, accept them for what they are, and grow comfortable with them. Because just as there's a chance of failing, there's still a chance of succeeding too and with that comes rewards greater than we can imagine right now.
And you know what? I'd rather aim for the skies and miss, landing in the stars, than to stay on the ground wishing I was up there.
If you aren't taking charge of your life yet, why don't you investigate the risks and rewards involved?
If you are, have you also noticed that the punishment for failure is a lot smaller than the satisfaction of a life you love and the potential rewards that come with success?
