It is courageous to take a step on a new, untried path.
Yes, it is simpler and easier to walk down the same old road, keep doing things the way you always have, and just leave well enough alone.
If we want to create something of value, of relevance, of worth, to give the world our greatness, then playing it safe just doesn’t cut it.
Yes, it is scary. Yes, it is hard. Yes, it is not what most people do. And that is why we must do it.
To truly contribute to people’s lives we must show up. We must display our commitment to growth by keeping our commitment to be bold, to be different, to be honest.
We may fail. We may crash and burn. There is no safety in traveling down a new path. And we may find diamonds there. We may find treasure beyond our imagination. We may find insight that opens a whole new world to us.
Of course you can decide to play it safe, and no one will ever know that you didn’t take that precarious step into the unknown. Except for one person…yourself.
The world is waiting for you…
