What if

What if you knew you couldn’t fail?  What if you knew for sure that this time, this would really work, that you would finally be successful?  What if you chose to be brave?  What if you didn’t let fear overtake you?  What if you believed in yourself?  What if you didn’t fear failure?  What if you didn’t fear success?  Yes, success.

There’s a certain amount of responsibility that comes with achieving success, reaching a goal.  If we don’t reach that finish line, we still have an out that not becoming successful affords us.  Reaching the goal, achieving success, we have to live up to ourselves.  We have to keep on being successful, keep on achieving.  And that can be a very scary thing to some of us.  “Jeez Louise, accomplishing this seemingly monumental goal is scary enough, but once I do, you mean I’m gonna have to do it all over again???  And something even bigger and better and even scarier???  Um, no.  No thank you.  I think I’ll stay where I am, thank you very much – even though I’m miserable.”

Think about that.  Does this sound familiar?  Is the fear of being successful, of being accountable to your future self holding you back?  Instead of letting fear hold you back from an awesome life, what if

  • you trust yourself
  • you choose to be brave
  • you live joyfully
  • you are grateful
  • you believe in yourself
  • you build upon the seemingly small successes that achieve each day
  • you live with determination
  • you stand up for yourself

What if you take the time to dream about what you really, truly want for yourself?  What will your life be like?
