When’s the last time you chased your dreams with everything you had? We aren’t talking a halfhearted chase, but a full on hunt to capture. It’s this kind of behaviour that inspires the world around us to go after their own dreams and it’s the kind behaviour that makes our peers proud of who we are.
It’s one thing to say you want something and another entirely to be willing to put everything you have on the line to try to get it. Would you risk losing other things that you’ve grown fond of? Are you willing to invest your own hard earned cash into making your dream a reality?
Fear of failure stops us from doing all sorts of wonderful things, and usually falling on our faces isn’t that bad. It’s the never trying that kills the spring in our steps and sucks joy from our lives. Even learning how to ride a bike came with skinned knees for nearly everyone who tried. And what about adult dreams and their versions of skinned knees? Are we so afraid of a little road rash that we aren’t willing to even attempt the chase?
Let’s all make a promise to live a bit more fearlessly and chase the things we want with more conviction. After all, skinned knees tend to heal rather quickly.
