This is for everyone out there who has a big dream but just don’t know what next to do.
I read the other day about a professional athlete who, the newspaper says, is still holding out. They do not think he will sign this contract until he gets everything he wants. But, the article continued, he is in danger of holding out too long. He may not only end up without what he wants, he may also end up without a contract.
Some people hold-out on life. They hold out until they can be sure they will succeed. They hold out until there are no uncertain ties or until they can see a solution to every problem. They wait until there are no risks. They forget that holding out on life can be the biggest risk of all.
“THE SADDEST WORDS OF TONGUE OR PEN ARE THESE:
‘IT MIGHT HAVE BEEN!'”
“Will it work out?”
“Can I be sure?”
“Can I wait until the risk is gone?”
These negative thoughts come like birds snapping up the seed of positive, life-renewing, growth-producing, risk-taking thoughts that are intended to inspire us to live happier, more joy-filled lives.
Determine today to stop holding out.
Sign the contract.
Take the risk.
Today I will let God’s positive ideas control my thinking.—curled from Dr Robert H. Schuller .
