I recently saw an interview Oprah did with Jon Bon Jovi and he said he wanted to be a guy that gave it his best shot and go after his dream instead of never going for it.
Knowing that we may fail if we pursue a dream is tough. However, when you think about the alternative, is that any better?
For me, I will keep going after my dreams. As they continue to come to fruition, it motivates me to climb even higher mountains.
What about you? Do you believe in yourself? Do you have the determination to strive for what you want?
“Your journey has molded you for the greater good, and it was exactly what it needed to be. Don’t think that you’ve lost time. It took each and every situation you have encountered to bring you to the now. And now is right on time.” - Asha Tyson
I noticed that a dear friend and colleague of mine, Jihan, posted the quote above on Facebook and I had been thinking earlier today how I can now see that each experience I have had was needed for me to be where I am right now. What gratitude I have for that awareness.
At the time, some of those were painful and/or tough to deal with but, I wouldn’t be living the amazing fulfilling life I am now. I also would never have had the patience, wisdom and compassion gained through those experiences.
Is there an area of your life that if you embraced this, you would have a different perspective and more peace?
I would love to know about it.
