Something to Think About

“Why, sometimes I’ve believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast.” – Lewis Carroll, Alice in Wonderland


Our personal belief system and the doubters we associate with are often the biggest hurdles we have to clear before we dare to leap into the unknown.

The only way I know of to clear the hurdles is to shake away the doubters, toss aside our fears, and set out.

The only sure outcome if we sit on the sidelines and let life pass us by is a suitcase filled with regrets and bitterness. 

Don’t sit on the sidelines. Take the leap into the unknown. You may fool everyone and achieve what others said was impossible. Or, you may fail, look back and laugh at the doubters and tell them, “I didn’t quite make it, but it was one hell of a ride.” 

Don’t Quit. Never Give Up!
