Taking risks in life is scary.
What if you fail? What if your plan doesn’t work out? What if success doesn’t look the way you’d hoped? What if your heart gets broken? What if? It’s scary stuff.
But you know what is even scarier? Settling.
Settling for a career you hate just because it pays wells. Settling for a guy that doesn’t give you that melted chocolate chip cookie feeling. Settling for a life that doesn’t live up to your standard of awesome.
Because here’s the thing, your life isn’t going to wait for you. It just keeps on going, whether you’ve got your shit figured out or not. So dream, but don’t just keep dreaming- DO! Do the things you’ve always wanted. Take the risks. Fail. Dust yourself off and try again. Imagine the life you want, then figure out how you’re going to get it!
You are the designer of your life.
You chose the people, the places, the careers, the things, the feelings. Why not design a life you love? It might take time. It might mean making sacrifices in the short term. It might mean taking some risks. It might mean you have some setbacks. But it also might mean you build the life you’ve always wanted. A life that upholds your definition of awesome! This is your life and it’s only going to be as great as you make it!
Every moment holds opportunity. Seize it! Focus. Fight for it. Love the journey.
Just like the man wandering the streets in Pretty Woman, today I ask you, “What’s your dream?”
