Metaphorically speaking only!
Sometimes you just have to take the bull by the horns and face your fears…….
It is scary, but at the same time exciting, thinking of the rewards if you succeed. And, there is no reason why you can’t succeed if you are determined enough. Sometimes life has a way of forcing us to confront our fears and then it could be a ‘do or die’ situation….. The stick! The ‘do or die’ stick is a powerful motivator to face those fears. And what do you really have to lose? The forever after ‘what if’!
We all have dreams and aspirations in life, however to achieve these dreams, we will eventually have to take action. No matter how overwhelming the task may be, it’s just a matter of taking a deep breath and taking one step at a time. It is hard and often a huge learning curve, often full of obstacles and setbacks, but we have to remind ourselves that it’s just like learning to drive. There was so much to remember to do when we were learning to drive…… to accelerate, to brake, the review mirror, indicator and not to mention the other cars on the road, etc. After constant practice and repetition, it became automatic and now seems natural to drive. The other piece of the puzzle is an instructor or mentor to help us through the obstacles and setbacks.
Sometimes we need to do things the hard way, on our own, to learn the lessons we need in life. Just like learning to ride a bike; after so many failures we eventually learnt to balance and to ride that bike. The easy way is to have a mentor to guide and encourage us and keep the momentum going through the learning process.
But most of all, what we need to do….. We need to take that first step and have the resolve – ‘My Word is Law’! The momentum will propel us with each step or action that we take, just like learning to drive or riding a bike and the rest will all fall into place. So what we feared the most – failure, is not really failure, but lessons we need to learn, to get to where we wanted to go.
Time to take that bull by the horns and do or die!
Until next time,
Laugh, Love & Live!
