When we consider our dreams, goals and aspirations, we often procrastinate because we are afraid – afraid of critics of failure of ridicule, of success itself. We fear the commitment that following our dreams or fulfilling our goals demands.
Most of all we fear change, even though it is what we want. There is no lure in not changing, in living the same life we have lived so far, it neither excites nor fulfils us. It is often hard to find the courage we need to step out of the comfort zone of the habitual and into the journey of adventure that allows us to reach our full potential. To do this, we need courage and to have the courage we need to learn about risk, to recognise that it is an integral part of the change, of adventure, of achievement.
Accept that we have to engage with risk, accept that failure is part of any journey, and dare to take action.
