Everyone has experienced failure and disappointment at least once in their lifetime; and because of this, there are many who believe the world has two types of people - those who do nothing because they remain anchored to the memories of the past and/or the fear of the unknown; and those who use those past failures, mistakes and frustration as a launching pad to reach for whatever it is which lies ahead; in other words, being open to new experiences. Allowing fear to control your thoughts and actions will almost always inhibit progression.
So, what is that you are really waiting for? Are you the type of person who will simply sit idle as life passes you by, all the while expecting the things you want to just fall into place without any action on your part? Hopefully, you have finally realized that there are real risks that must be taken in order to get whatever it is that you want.
No matter how much time has passed from the the last time or the only time that you found what it was you were looking for – there are still risks that must be taken if you ever plan to unlock the full potential of what you seek. Time should never be viewed as a deterrent or an obstacle. At this stage you cannot let another moment pass without taking the necessary steps to fulfill your desires.
Stephen Russell puts it best when he says, ““Vulnerability is the only authentic state. Being vulnerable means being open, for wounding, but also for pleasure. Being open to the wounds of life means also being open to the bounty and beauty. Don’t mask or deny your vulnerability: it is your greatest asset. Be vulnerable: quake and shake in your boots with it. The new goodness that is coming to you, in the form of people, situations, and things can only come to you when you are vulnerable, i.e. open.”
