Are You Going to Take a Leap of Faith in 2014?


Recently, I discovered, there is no way around it. Sometimes, you have to step out on faith and see where it takes you.  Let’s face it, people who play it safe often go nowhere.  It’s the risk takers who find success and/or change the world.  Think Steve Jobs, Oprah Winfrey, Bill Gates, and Sam Walton.  At one point in their lives, they were told,  ” You can’t do that! it would be crazy to go and start your own_________.”  If they would have listened to the naysayers, then there may not have been an Apple, OWN Network, Microsoft, or Walmart. So maybe your dreams aren’t that big, you just want to open a little cafe, land a new job, lose weight, or write that bestselling novel.  None of that is going to happen if you don’t do something about it.  Change begins with you. The road to nowhere sometimes takes you to places that you may have never imagined. Life is about chances.  Life is about choices.  And guess what, you are the sole decision-maker in your life, but sometimes we give that important role to others, knowingly and unknowingly,  and we allow them to define us and tell us what we should be doing, when we know we should be doing the very opposite.  Are you going to take your role back in 2014? Are you going to keep living the same way in 2014, even though you know it’s not working and hasn’t been for a very LONG time, or are you going to that leap of faith and see where it takes you? Make the impossible possible.
