Is there something, some project, you have wanted to do or take on but haven’t? Do you need someone else to give you the permission to go ahead and start? Why? If it is something that is wrong then you shouldn’t do it. But, if your idea meets the criteria of being the right thing to do within your job or personal life, what are you waiting for? A lot of times, I believe, we hold back and don’t follow that idea. It’s safer to just hang back or ask someone for permission to take action. If we hang back we don’t risk making mistakes. But we’ve both heard the quote -

“Those who don’t make mistakes ultimately end up working for those who do.”

Assess your idea. What if you moved ahead and put it into action? What’s the worst thing that might happen if it didn’t work? What if it did work? Are you comfortable where you are? If your idea, your project, is really important to you take the next step, assess what might happen. You might find that you can live better with trying and failing then you can with never trying at all. Give yourself permission to live an extra ordinary life.

  • “If you are not willing to risk the unusual, you will have to settle for the ordinary.”

    Jim Rohn

  • Only those who will risk going too far can possibly find out how far one can go.

    T. S. Eliot
