Go Too Far

“Trust yourself.  Create the kind of self that you will be happy to live with all your life. Make the most of yourself by fanning the tiny, inner sparks of possibility into flames of achievement.”  Golda Meir 4th prime minister of Israel
What is achievement?  How do measure our own sense of success?  Dictionary.com describes “achievement” as a thing done successfully, typically by effort, courage, or skill.   Achievement is the “something” that helps us feel pride and satisfaction.  The only real way to achieve “something” is to set a challenging goal, a goal that seems far outside of our abilities to achieve it.
What is the deepest goal of your heart?  Is it something that has haunted you for a long time?  What is stopping you from reaching your goal?  Maybe today is the day that you finally stop dreaming and start achieving! Fan your inner flames.  Trust yourself and your body.  Trust your own judgment and the deep desires of your heart.  They won’t lead you astray.   Take the first timid step and see what the future holds.
I’ll leave you with another quote that I love.  It’s seem brash and crazy but it’s also completely, totally, unapologetically and 100% true.
“Only those who will risk going too far can possibly find out how far one can go.”  TS Eliot

  1. Love this! It’s so important to act on our dreams. And listening to the body can provide such guidance. Here’s another quote to add to the collection: “And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.” Anais Nin.
