Wonder: Aim higher

“For most of us the problem isn’t that we aim too high and fail – it’s just the opposite – we aim too low and succeed.” ~Sir Ken Robinson

We tell ourselves frightening stories: we will fail and be humiliated, we will try and be disappointed, or we will put ourselves out there and be rejected. Those fears are real, but don’t let them weigh you down and don’t let them stop you. Use them. Use them as fuel. Stack a plan against those fears that will help you overcome them. Don’t aim lower. Aim higher, higher than even your wildest dreams would allow. And then work to meet them. We are so much more capable and deserving than we think we are.

  1. Yes, a thousand times, YES! Precisely on point. It’s true that at any moment catastrophe can strike but if we are mindful of this fact we can use those fears to push through the unknown into greatness! Spot on and great quote! Be blessed.
