Here is a flashback to one of my favourite articles written for Sibyl Magazine.
Daring and taking risks is something that most people grapple with throughout their lifetime for a variety of reasons. Most people have not achieved their heart’s desire because they stay stuck within the status quo and don’t try new things. Through maintaining the status quo in life, you will become stagnant if you are not using your gifts and talents to their fullest capacity. We all know that anything in life that is worth having involves hard work, determination, and relentless pursuit of goals. How then can you accelerate your journey to realizing your dreams. There are numerous ways that this can be done.
The first is to be conscious of your mortality. The truth of the matter is that we all know that we are living on borrowed time. Instead of living in fear of the inevitable, let’s use this knowledge to free ourselves in order to live the best possible life. If one day we are going to leave the mortal coil, we shouldn’t be intimidated or scared to try to new things. Be purposeful, dare and take calculated risks. Make each day count! The second thing we can do to accelerate the trajectory towards our dreams is to eliminate or let go of the need for external approval for how we live our lives. As long as we are not breaking any laws or hurting anyone, how we live our lives is our choice. Let go of your need to be approved of and liked all the time. Pursue your dreams and heart’s desire with passion and determination. The third way that we can accelerate our journey is through committed, strategic action!
Each of you has something special to contribute to the planet based on your unique gifts. The fact that you are on the planet means that you already beat the odds to be here. You are here because of God’s Divine plan for your life. You have what it takes to be a success in life. For some of you that means being an excellent parent, spouse, child or family member. It could mean being a great friend, active in your faith or volunteer community, creating art, or being successful in your career among many possibilities.
Always remember to pursue your dreams and never give up. The Divine will always support your endeavours for your highest good.
