Safety First

Do you step one foot onto the ice….and hold your breath?

Do you walk around the edge of the pool….and dip your toe in the water?

Do you stand before the wall in front of you…..and eventually turn around?

Playing it safe is an easy choice. You won’t get hurt, disappointed, or rejected. If you play it safe, you can put things on cruise control. You won’t have to work as hard. You can do the “same old, same old” things that are familiar.

You also won’t reach your full potential. You won’t grow. You’ll miss out on opportunities. And all the great aspirations and dreams that you have will be just that….dreams that never come to fruition.

Be bold. Live on the edge. Take measured, calculated risks. Do something unpredictable. Ask for what you want.

When you’re standing in front of that huge wall again do something different. Go over it. Dig underneath it. Go around it. Better yet….bust right through it.

It’s time to pop the bubble.
