Here is another good question to ask yourself, is the hesitancy of moving forward fear disguised as wisdom?
Too many people fearfully write off why they can’t do what they know they’re called to do. Then they reason it away as if it is wisdom when it is usually just fear disguising itself as wisdom.
Remember the #1 regret of the dying from the Huffington Post article, “I wish I’d had the courage to live a life true to myself, not the life others expected of me.” It would be a terrible “aha moment” to realize late in life that fear was masking itself as wisdom and it had held you back from your dreams.
Standing on one side of the river and projecting how bad it will be on the other side of the river is akin to basing future successful opportunities on past failures. There is no way to know what favor awaits you until you go explore the new land of opportunity. You cannot account for all the amazing people and things that will be attracted to you after you take a few steps in the direction of your dreams.
Sometimes what you need to maintain and walk out your purpose doesn’t find you until you try and find it. If you really want to know what it is like on the other side of the river, it’s simple, you will need to cross the river and explore.
Things can change in a quick and dramatic fashion when you let your self acclimate in new territories. Just look how it played out in the life of Babe Ruth.
