Falling Forward

3 Feb

We can do anything as we navigate through our lives. There will always be chances to try something new, and expand our horizons. The world is huge and the opportunities around us are limitless, but we must decide what we want, and what we’ll do. If we’re comfortable where we are, and are afraid of change or concerned about failure, we may stay in place and do the same things indefinitely. But doing the same things will never bring us anything new that refreshes, moves us forward, or brings new horizons into focus. It’s easy to remain in our routine and keep our lives small, but our dreams can only come true if we step out of our comfort zone and push toward them. There is risk in everything, and if we try something new we might fail. But if we do, we won’t fall back to where we were, but will fall forward. We’ll gain new insight and experiences and take them ahead with us. Falling forward, unafraid of failure, will bring us great enrichment and expand our understanding of ourselves and the world around us. If we allow the fear of failure to control our decisions, we will never be able to reach our most desired goals. There is greatness inside all of us, and we are capable of achieving more than we imagine. By courageously stepping into the unknown, and taking a chance on something new, our lives will be enriched and no matter the outcome, our outlook will be expanded and we’ll have more knowledge and experience. Every blessing is possible, and if we trust ourselves to move toward something new, we may discover unexpected benefits. The whole world is there for us and every destination awaits. We can have the lives we dream of, reach every goal, and realize every dream.

The traditions of our families and cultures are very powerful. If things have been done a certain way for a long time, and we want something different, we may face opposition. There may be pressure to go along and not rock the boat. We can certainly comply with any suggestions, keep our heads down, and simply follow along. But following someone else’s path will never take us where we want to go. Our lives are important, and we can design them any way we like, even if they are different than those around us. Our uniqueness brings great depth and richness to the world, and by honoring what we really want, we’ll find great satisfaction and happiness.

Fear of the unknown can be paralyzing. Just because we can’t read the future or see what lies around the next corner, that doesn’t mean we can’t handle it. Stepping into foreign territory may be unsettling, but it will only be foreign at the beginning. As we move forward, we will make the journey ours. We have all the wisdom and courage needed to move toward any goal we desire, and can reach every success.

Today if you want something new but are afraid of reaching for it, remember how capable and strong you are. Nothing is too hard or too complicated for you to figure out. Decide what you want the most, and begin moving forward. Your life is yours to design, and everything is possible. Be confident and start now. There is greatness in you, and you will win.
