Many years ago, I was in charge of a company’s award banquet. While honoring a dear woman for 35 years of service, she said to me, “I’m embarrassed by the whole thing. I only stayed because I hated change and was too scared to leave.”
I knew the feeling. Many of us do. The voice in our head tells us the unknown evil lurking out there will probably be worse than the evil we already know so well.
- Rob ourselves of our dreams, and
- Rob the world of our best selves
Quite a price to pay.
The question we have to ask is this; “Which error hurts ourselves and others most? Living a passionless life or the errors we might make seeking our true destiny?”
