During the course of life, there are moments I look back on and think “that moment changed everything”, it in many ways changed the course of my life; it changed the friends I made, the places I lived, the experiences I had etc.
These moments very often require you being bold and making a decision, sometime the status quo makes your decision to be bold seem like the worst thing you can do, but breaking past that is being bold.
Feel the fear, and do it anyway.
Being bold in these moments doesn’t mean you are not afraid of the potential outcome not being what you expect, it has everything to do with knowing this but still believing that it is worth it.
Be Bold! When you get to that moment when you either stay still or move forward, put yourself in gear and move forward, be willing to take the risk for your happiness and only if you truly believe that it will make you happy.
The eternal question for me at the moment is, comfort vs happiness. When I started with taking the path of happiness the decisions had little overall repercussions, as you go along the repercussions become grander; these are the times to be bold, these are the times it really counts.
I often think back to when I was a child, I always did what was fun and what would make me happy, I was always happy and I lived with the consequences of broken bones :)
Be bold, make that decision to travel, to ask for a raise, to run that marathon, to climb that mountain, to start that business, to move to that country and live with the consequences.
Don’t give yourself any excuses; from my experience, it always turns out to be worth it.
