You Have Nothing To Lose.

"You can conquer almost any fear if you will make up your mind to do so. For remember, fear doesn't exist anywhere except in the mind."

Dale Carnegie
1888-1955, Speaker and Author

You have nothing to lose. What would happen if you stepped out and attempted the things you wish to do? One of two things will happen. One, you will succeed; or Two, you will fail. These are the odds, no matter what the project. We must risk failure if we wish to succeed. This is a hard and fast truth. Take a deep breath and begin. Encourage yourself! Write down all of the reasons why taking the first step in situations you have been avoiding, would be beneficial. You deserve to feel connection and you deserve to step out into the world and enjoy what it has to offer. It is a wide open world with so many possibilities! You can reinvent yourself as many times as you like.

There are NO rules.

It is Undoubtedly True.

Whatever you consider,

or dream about becoming,

Whatever you wish you were doing,

but instead are avoiding

Whatever your heart desires to do

Begin It!

Begin It!

or about it you'll stew.

You'll Never know What

You're Capable of

Where your skills are best suited

What You're REALLY made of

Until You take a deep Breath

Take a deep Breath Right Now

Step into new Territory

To Yourself make a vow

For the Journey of a Thousand Miles Begins with One step

And the next one that follows is easier yet

And the next one

And next one

will invariably flow

From a place called your courage

You are getting to know.

And this place called courage

You must search for to find

It resides behind Fear,

In the Back of your mind.

You can get them to trade places

You're in charge of your thoughts

Decide which one makes YOUR choices

It won't be for Naught.

A whole wide world awaits you

Possibilities abound

For the courage you misplaced

Once was lost

But now is found

Celebrate its return

Invite it for lunch!

For Breakfast

and Dinner,

Invite it a Bunch

Let it move into the FRONT of your mind

Begin It! Begin it!

Now is the time.

Every one of us is worthy. We all have something special to give to the world. Commit yourself to sharing it, and take a chance. The truth is, you need no one's approval to speak your piece. They are allowed to disagree, and so are you. And the world would be a very Boring place if only a few points of view were represented. Your individuality is your Gift, and gifts are for sharing ;)

"You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You are able to say to yourself, 'I have lived through this horror. I can take the next thing that comes along.' You must do the thing which you think you can not do."

-Eleanor Roosevelt
