You miss 100% of the shots you don’t take – Wayne Gretzkiy
Why do I mention this? Because the one thing that keeps us from our dreams is fear. Fear of taking that next step, fear of what might happen, fear of what might not happen, and it goes on and on. Many of the scenarios are far fetched and simply become excuses to keep us in our comfort zone.
When I am faced with a new situation, and I feel the fear creeping up, I ask myself, “When you are on your deathbed looking back, would you regret missing this opportunity?” It requires you to let go, and just dream and be really honest with yourself.
This photo is of me when I lived in Norway. I went on a 2½ hour hike to this bolder called Kjerag. It is a large bolder stuck in between the side of two rock walls. The drop to the fjyord is 3228 feet down! It was scary but I knew I may never get the chance to go back to Norway and in the time I had left living there, I would not make it back for a second hike. So, I jumped on! It was much more frightening to get off the bolder than to step (hop) on, but I am glad I did it…no regrets.
Walk though the fear and find your dreams
