Wisdom is knowing that you may not succeed,
Courage is trying when you probably won’t.
When we are young we tend to lack wisdom and try things that are beyond our grasp, and sometimes we accomplish those goals. This sense of adventure, daredevil attitude, gets worn off most of us as we get older. We end up in our comfort zone, as we call it.
Is there something you have been thinking about doing, but haven’t gotten around to trying. If the thought of failure is holding you back, let me make a few points. If going beyond what we can see was a limiting factor Columbus and other sailors would never have discovered new worlds, as they were always beyond the horizon. If daring to dream of flying high, was to be doomed to crash we wouldn’t be travelling from Vancouver to hong Kong in about 12 hours, it would be many days on a ship. Man has always wondered about the moon, and stars. So far we have been to the moon several times, and now there is talk maybe the red planet is next. Yes in some cases there have been tragedies, but mankind has advanced by daring to try the inconceivable, or impossible.
So what are you not attempting that you think is too hard to accomplish. Is it needing to lose weight, millions have done it, and millions are working at it, change your attitude, change your diet and change the amount of physical exercise you get, and lean to meditate. Yes meditate, as if you leave that stress behind, you will achieve a healthier weight. Is it a relationship issue? Did you do something that hurt that special someone in your life. Sit down and have an open and honest discussion about the issue. Yes there will be pain, but once the pain is revealed the healing will start. Keeping your thoughts and emotions bottled up, hurts you and them. If we feel someone won’t love us, because of what we did or said, then we will probably get our wish. Make things right, then work twice as hard at making then stay that way. If it is someone else who has hurt us, we need to not hold their past actions against them, forgive and move forward. If we continually bring up the past, we are not living in the present, and will possibly not have a future together. Honesty, and effort are needed for a relationship to grow.
