“I’d rather end up wishing I hadn’t than end up wishing I had.” – Leo Tolstoy
I love this quote. It tells you to take risks and chances, without allowing fear to debilitate you. Are you always going to land on your feet? Probably not… but that’s alright, at least you tried. How will you ever get anywhere or anything that you want from life without courage? Would you rather regret the decisions that you didn’t make and wonder “what if”, or would you rather overcome your fears and go after what you really want — whatever the outcome of that choice, there is success in choosing the second option.
We all have fear in our lives but once we’re able to open our eyes to the bigger picture and realise that we’re responsible for creating it, how fearful is it then? Show fear that you’re in control, then you might find that the fear goes away.
There’s a fantastic video voiced by talented actor Jim Carrey that embodies this message, listen carefully from 1.25 onwards:
You decide how much of a role fear plays in your life. Choose your path; choose love.
If there’s something that you want to do with your life, do it. If there’s something that you need to share with the world, share it. If there’s something you need to tell someone, say it. If there’s something that your heart desires, follow it. Don’t hold back.
I motivate and encourage you all to do one courageous thing this week, step out of your comfort zone and see what’s out there. You can be whoever you want and do whatever you want. You are ready and able, I want to see you be brave…
