“They didn’t have the guts to risk the life they were already living, for the one they were capable of” - Darren Hardy

Somewhere along the line, well intentioned and some not so well intentioned people spoke words of lack, limitation, insecurity, lack of confidence and everything else that they could muster in order to convince you not to believe in yourself.

As a result, the road more travelled was less risky and following the herd was a better choice at the time.

Reject this information and believe that nothing is impossible for you if you believe in yourself.

Change is painful.

Dave Ramsey expressed this brilliantly, “Change is painful. Few people have the courage to seek out change. Most people won’t change until the pain of where they are exceeds the pain of change.” 

Change is painful but if the herd is in a stampede mode, you will be trampled and ostracized if you don’t keep up or fit in.

Break free, once and for all as this has been pressing on your consciousness for some time.

Who really cares about what someone else is eating, visiting, buying, wearing, saying, criticizing, going, driving, living etc.

Let them wallow in it but you don’t have to participate.

Break free from this herd mentality.

You are a lot smarter than your ego.

 Life = Risk.

As a result, your discontent and dissatisfaction creates the birth of something incredibly fruitful and profitable that otherwise would have been buried forever.

It is painful however your inner being has been constantly attempting to get your attention amid the incessant noise of the herd.

Pause and listen attentively.

Your direction will be very clear to you as soon as you stop and listen.

Don’t look back at the herd.

Do not look back as your ego wants you to vegetate on this until the cows come home.

As I said previously, you are far more intelligent than your ego.

Look forward with an inner eye of understanding that reveals your true, personal GPS.

You are exactly where you need to be at this juncture in your life, as this change will fast forward your desire.

Trust that inner voice and seize your moment now.

 So, what is risk?

A lot of people focus on the inconvenience and discomfort of change and as a result they fail to see the opportunities that are right in front of their face.

There are always possibilities and opportunities.

Focusing on change is painful and only intensifies the fear.

The ego wants you to focus on the change so you can become emotionally attached and emotionally derailed.

Everyone embraces change, right?

Life is change.

Embrace it!

Love it! 

Get wet and get dirty.

The real results are in it.

Don’t follow the herd. 

When you look back, you will say, “Who was that?”
