Have you ever had an idea for a new project or wanted to learn a new skill or implement a new routine in your life but when you thought about it, you just got stuck?
Instead of jumping in and taking action, you pondered all the ways that something might go wrong or convinced yourself you weren’t really good enough or the right person to complete the task.
Surely I’m not the only one who has experienced this!
Here’s the thing.
When you first learned to ride a bike as a kid, what if you had hemmed and hawed over all the things that might go wrong? Instead of getting on the bike and peddling, what if you sat on the curb wondering what it would feel like if you fell and scraped your knee or how terrible it would be if the neighborhood kids saw you wobbling and laughed.
I’d venture to say you never would have learned to ride a bike. Then, think about all the fun you would have missed out on.
Sometimes to experience or new things in life as adults, we need to channel our inner kid and just jump!
So…what are you waiting for?
Today, take a leap of faith, take a risk.
Instead of sitting on the sidelines, enjoy this precious life we’ve been given!
