There are times in everyone’s life when we must take chances. Its nothing new. Life – essentially – is a huge, (hopefully well-lived!) learning experience! Even the smallest choice we make today can have a lasting impact.
Then there are the whoppers! Relationships, jobs, etc.:
Shall I, shan’t I? What should I do?
What if I try and fail? What if I look like a big blundering idiot? What if nobody likes me? What if I lose everything? What if a meteorite were to land right on top of you? What if the sky really did start to fall? Upside down? What if a giant tortoise suddenly turned vicious while you were off the coast of the Galapagos Islands and ate your big toe? (Joke! it takes them hours to mate- they don’t move too fast)…
I think the point is made?
Anything in life can carry some risk. In an economy like ours, it can be financial suicide to make a career change.
It could be the absolute best decision you EVER made! Yes, there’s alot of variables. Okay TONS of variables. But still… what if you really were born to cook, or sew, or farm, or fill-in-the-blank? What if you’re stuck in a rut or a box that will only change by getting smaller and more constrictive? What if you DON’T take the risk, and end up in the worst possible shape imaginable, because you never became your real “you”? What if you never challenged yourself? What if somehow, someway, years down the road, you see the person you could have been – but never really tried to be and its TOO LATE to change? What then?
