I am not afraid of failure. It’s not that big of a deal for me. However, what I am most of afraid of is something similar, but yet very far away at the same time.
I am afraid of mediocrity. I don’t want to live my whole life, get to the end, and say, “Well, that was OK.” I don’t want to wonder, wish, or pine over what “might have been”. I want to lay it all out on the table, step off the cliff, throw caution to the wind, and do what isn’t always the “safest” idea.
Risk is far less of a challenge for me than doing nothing. Nothing terrifies me…and I hope it terrifies you, too! I think that we are so afraid of doing the wrong thing that we do nothing, which in all irony is the wrong thing most of the time!
My two cents for today is to get moving, get the ball rolling, and stop over-thinking what you have sensed God wants to do in your life. I think the Bible clearly illustrates that God can deal with our failures. What He can’t work with is our paralyzed life handcuffed by a false understanding of His expectations.
It’s a good day to live your dream!
