It's amazing how much life can change for the better when you take risks on behalf of your dreams.
This isn't some airy-fairy statement. The Uni-verse made you to fulfill your purpose, so It WILL support you in doing so.
So many of us live lives that are cut off, shut down and in our comfort zone. We value certainty over love & our happiness. In the end, we'll come to see that there is no certainty in life, only the appearance of certainty. In reality, its actually riskier to not take risks 'cuz when you get to the end of you're life, when you take your final breath, a thought that should cross no one's mind will come up - "what if I had...".
Coming to the end of your life and wondering "what if " is a fate worse than any risk you can take now. None of us get out of life alive, so what we must remember is that it is the loving risks, adventure and our contributions to the world that count. Everything else is secondary.
The people who change the world and who truly have happiness live consciously or unconsciously like this every day. They choose to expand outside their comfort zone, instead of retreat into it. They choose to let Love win and focus on being kind instead of being right. They value scars over perfection. They add more value to life than they take from it. They let The Uni-verse guide them through their heart, instead of letting the fears of their head run their life. And when they come to the end, they rejoice, for they have been used up completely, given everything and extracted every bit of love, joy and adventure from life.
Don't shut down. Let's us not retreat into our comfort zones. Let's step out. Let's stand up. Let's make a stand that today and everyday forward to let our faith be stronger than our fear. We prove this to ourselves through action, not just words. We back up our faith through taking constant and persistent action towards the things we say we believe and have faith in.
We set an intention to not be one of those people who gets to the end of life and wonders "what if ?", but instead we say, "I stood for something and I made a difference".
The promise of Life is that you are taken care of, you are supported and dreams are real. We have been given a life not to live in fear, but to step forward and live out of gifts and our dreams. This cannot happen if you do not make the choice in every moment to be ALL IN when it comes to your dreams.
There is a mysterious force that helps us when we risk on behalf of our dreams. This is The Uni-verse silently guiding our paths, opening the perfect doors for us and closing the dead ends.
Roll with the punches, go with the flow, let go and consciously design your life to be lived on behalf of your dreams instead of your fear. And remember, how long must you try? That's right. Until.
Who do you want to be when you look back on your life? Do you want to wonder "what if"? Or smile knowing you gave it your all. Right now, you have a choice to change the outcome of that moment. What'll it be?
