Growth is an amazing thing, and a marker of the major milestones in life. Taking a leap of faith and throwing yourself full throttle into accomplishing a dream can be a daunting task to undertake; but so worth it! If you do not try you will avoid failure - but you'll also undermine your infinite ability to succeed.
Picture if you will for a minute, the breeze rushing against your face, your heart pumping so hard you can feel the beat in your finger tips, your toes aching from the constant drumming against pavement, and your stomach churning from the swivel of your hips as you propel yourself forward, one step at a time. Cheeks in flux as air flows in a stead rhythm - in one-two-three, out one-two-three - with your eyes focused on a narrow ribbon pulled taunt just yards in front of you.
Now that you have that vision clear in your mind, tell me, what are you going to do next? Are you going to push with all you've got to break through the ribbon first? Or are you going to pull up short because your toes are aching, stomachs churning, and your heart is beating out of your chest? Unbeknowst to most people, they are just this close to achievement when they throw in towel on a dream.
Don't give up. Don't lose your vision - just push through the last few yards and snap that ribbon out of the air!
