Quote on Fear

Prepare to Jump

Life is like going parachuting. The plane takes you up to altitude to approach the jump zone. The light comes on to begin the count, the door opens, you stand ready to jump 3, 2,1, Go! Go! and you are paralyzed by fear, and you miss the jump zone and plane descends for landing. When the flight lands all opportunities to jump are over, you lost your shot. You did not just miss your shot, you missed your chance to fly, your chance to see the world from a different perspective.


What Will You Miss

Will we really miss anything if you don’t jump? The best answer here is, we will never know. Whether we are willing to admit it or not, this not knowing will eventually get to us. All we will have left is the grief of not jumping. We’ve heard the sounds of regret before, haven’t we? We have heard people say, “If I had it to do all over again,” or “I wish I would have.” What they are really saying is, I didn’t jump when I had the chance and now its too late.

Pull Your Parachute

Take The Leap And Learn

What can we learn from this? Do not let your opportunity to make the leap pass you by. Our time is finite, and so are our chances to do that thing which beckons us. There is something that scares us and calls to us at the same time. Does this make us crazy? No. The calling and the fear of it make us conflicted, and there is only one way to resolve the conflict. 3, 2, 1, Jump and enjoy the ride. We are missing the ride of our lives all because we are afraid. We should be afraid of never knowing the liberation of the jump.
