To live fully means we will fail but in doing so we fully embrace the opportunity that is life. Don’t get to the end of your life to find that playing it safe comfort was not really what you wanted. Have courage and take a risk by standing up, stepping out, and even shouting out to play the game that inspires you. And with that – be prepared to fail.

I encourage you to FAIL at something everyday!

FAIL because you gave it a go

FAIL because you took a risk

FAIL because you had a zero tolerance for excuses

As J.K. Rowling says,  “It is impossible to live without failing at something, unless you live so cautiously that you might as well not have lived at all – in which case, you fail by default.”

So, proceed with less caution.

Don’t worry about what others might think.

Don’t avoid risk just in case you might fail.

Don’t blend in to the world around you.

Don’t sit quietly with your desires bottled up.

Don’t follow crowds — walk your own path.

Don’t hide the real you — show your uniqueness.

There’s talk about exposure to risk. I think about it as exposure to life. Are you fully exposed to life and playing that game or are you playing it safe?

Take a risk towards a life you want.
