Fortune Favors the Bold

We’ve all stood at the precipice. It’s high up here and we have no idea what’s at the bottom. Fear tells us to stay where we are. Why should we take the leap? It’s safe and comfortable here in our rut.

Heart pounding, we hold our breath and jump. Here it comes! This unbridled excitement can only come when we take a risk. Sometimes we hit the target and land like an Olympic gymnast on our feet. Nailed it!

Sometimes we bounce on our backsides, missing the mark completely. Now what? We get back on our feet, brush ourselves off and try again like a boss! Go ask the barista you’re crushing on for a date. Speak to your boss about a promotion. Run that marathon. Okay. Start with the 5K, but don’t be afraid to train for the marathon.

Be Positive. Be Happy. Be Well.
