Sometimes I wish I was 10 years old without a care in the world. Sometimes I wish I was 40 with everything all figured out. And sometimes I wish I would just stop wishing all the time.
To those who stay put, the world is but an imaginary place. But to the movers, the makers, and the shakers, the world is all around them, an endless invitation.
That moment when a trail starts feeling more like a path to a new world.
Dig deep and you’ll see your path but you’ll never be able to see where it leads. That’s what makes the first step so exciting.
Feel the rush that comes with removing the safety net, giving everything you have and allowing your confidence to land you safely.
If you’re going through a difficult time, consider the possibility that right now you’re exactly where you need to be.
When parasites slip into oysters and threaten their survival, their natural reaction is not to fight it off. Instead they cover it up with the same substance that is used to create their protective shell. Overtime this process creates one of the most admired objects in the world, the pearl.
Instead of trying to eliminate problems or avoid fears; run towards them. They’re your stepping stones to greatness.
Take on a challenge that you always thought was beyond your capability. Pursue an idea despite not knowing if people will respond positively. Dive into a relationship even if you've been hurt. Embrace vulnerability and reveal yourself without holding back.
Exposing who we are (good and bad) takes lots of courage. The root of the word courage is cor—the Latin word for heart. It's originally meaning was “To connect by revealing all of your heart.” For more on this watch Brene Brown's Ted talk.
