When you decide to go ALL IN on your passion, there can’t be any turning back.
Or you won’t get there.
With each step that you take, you have to burn the bridge behind you.
Set fire to the fears and excuses and bullshit and false promises and insecurities and inactions and everything else that’s held you captive for so long.
There’s only one way: forward.
Forward toward that big, crazy dream. Your passion… And if you believe it. If you work your ass off for it. If you go ALL IN on it. You will reach it.
That’s what’s necessary.
That’s what’s required to truly assess the circumstance, understand the obstacle, and embrace the opportunity. It’s what’s needed to learn the environment and create the vision.
Touch, see, hear, feel, taste. Literally and metaphorically. All five. You have to be completely turned on to live your biggest life and do your greatest work.
Step outside your safe circle, and everything changes.
Parts of the view appear the same, but your entire perspective is rearranged.
Your priorities shift as you step and search and seek. All the angles and issues and opportunities and feelings instantly evolve.
When you take action that is uncomfortable and unconventional and scary, you lose the security of familiar footing.
But you feel the freedom of untouched air. And that is the only way you can fly…
Make your move.
I know it’s not fun. I know it’s painful and awkward and uncomfortable at times. I know it hurts.
But the only way to rise high, is to dive deep.
You have to fall into the depths of you. Sink into yourself, and start to discover everything about you that’s not sitting on the surface.
Your fears, your failures, your insecurities. Your passions, your purpose, your beliefs. Your secrets and regrets. Your “why.”
Everything that’s been hidden by time, turmoil or circumstance. All that’s buried beneath your garden of excuses. All that’s waiting to be found.
You have to ask yourself the tough questions and accept the harsh answers.
The deeper we go into the origins of how we feel and what we think and what we do and why we do it and who we are doing it for, the clearer our paths become.
Some chances are too fleeting to feel often.
Some choices are too rare to reoccur regularly.
Opportunities that appear in an instant, and then escape in a flash.
Moments that are meant to be earned, and learned, and appreciated.
Invisible openings into a world of potential and possibility. Unscripted. Uncommon. And unseen…
Today, is that day. Today, Hope comes out of hiding. And Belief meets us for breakfast. Promise drives us to work, and Time is FINALLY on our side…
Three-quarters of our life, we are denied this day.
Today, it’s in our hands. Given and gifted. Wrapped and ready. No strings attached. An extra day to dream, and do, and fix, and finish. An added occasion to begin rebuilding what’s been broken, and start seizing what we’ve let slide.
Twenty-four more hours to claim what’s truly ours…
What will you do with them?
