Listen to today’s warm and fuzzy here!
I believe that it was Dr. Paul Tournier who once compared life to a man swinging on a trapeze. Back and forth he went. The bar was his whole life — back and forth, back and forth. He hung on tightly and felt secure. He knew nothing other than swinging on the trapeze – back and forth.
Then one day another bar came into view and he faced a dilemma. What was he to do? Should he reach for the new bar? Should he take the chance … abandon the security he’d always known and venture forth to a new place? He felt excited, and a little scared.
The moment of truth dawned, however, when he realized that, in order to reach the new bar, he would have to LET GO of the old one. The thought terrified him. But he knew that he could never move ahead unless he left the place where he was.
Our lives are filled with fearful moments and anxious decisions. Managing the fear sometimes means letting go and just doing it. It’s the only way to move ahead.
Do you need to let go and take hold of that new thing? The reward could be the life you’ve been wantingShare on Facebook
