Sometimes, we are afraid to take the next step.
Submit a story for publication? What if they don’t like it.
Move to a new city? But I don’t know anyone there, and I’m afraid I’ll feel alone.
Start writing that book? What if it isn’t any good?
Zig Ziglar, and many others, say:
I like to ask myself: “What’s the worst that can happen?”
Editors don’t like a story I submitted? Okay, I’ll write others.
I moved to a new city and guess what? I put myself out there and made friends.
A first draft of the first chapter led to throwing it out later on and starting somewhere else, but that’s okay. I started.
It’s all about choices. We can choose to take a risk, or we can choose to remain safe in the harbor and never venture out into life. I say risk. Look down the road, take the steps, then reevaluate and go on from there.
What CHOICES are you going to make? Share, and I’ll pray about it for you.
Enjoy this Super Bowl Sunday,
