Imagine What Could Happen

Fear often keeps us from reaching for those things that we ought to. Many of us simply are afraid to fail. I like Wayne Gretzky's quote that says, "You miss 100% of the shots you don't take." When we fail to go after those things that we ought to, it has a tendency to create bitterness in our latter years. A life of mediocrity is often at the root of most bitterness you find as people age. When you feel like you've missed multiple opportunities to reach your destiny, being bitter appears to be the only option left.

Imagine what could happen if you lived your life with no fear of failing. Babies fail countless times as they learn to walk but I've never seen a single one give up yet on that endeavor. They just get back up again and keep trying till they master the art of walking. Thomas Edison handled failure well. He described it saying, "I have not failed. I've just found 10,000 ways that won't work." You should say the same when things don't work out the first,second, third, fourth and fifth time. Just imagine how your life could change when you finally get it right. Believe that when things finally come together, it will be truly amazing.

Get up and get moving on those things that plague your mind. Make your life count. Don't just count your years, make your years count (George Meredith).
