This week I stepped onto the ledge and took a jump!
For years the idea of public speaking was filled with a sense of fear that held me back. It wasn’t the fear of getting in front of others, it was the fear of looking like I didn’t know what I was doing. That is the most debilitating fear that one can have and it is as false as the voices in our minds telling it to us!
This week I sat down at my computer and began writing to every high school in a hundred mile radius and asked if I could speak to their students free of charge. Now that might seem rather risk taking but in truth it is necessary to create a base for my career. Don’t misunderstand me, the farther I will go, I will ask for something like my fuel in return while within this area and later turn this into a career that will support me and my children. The key is to get my plane off the ground and go higher into the clouds.
I’ll admit that I am nervous, but the nervousness is simply a sign of the next level approaching and the time is coming to prepare to grab ahold and pull myself to that level and leave the old one behind!
Whatever your wanting to do in your life, I want to encourage you to go for it and go for it now! There is never a more perfect time like today, like right now! In the words of the old film ‘Captain Ron’, Turn On The Juice And See What Shakes Loose!
