Two Choices…

Every day you wake up you have a choice:

1. Do what you’ve been doing.

The same old same old you heard before: 
Let fear rule you. Give into easy. Do what ‘they’ tell you. Blame the world. Work the job that everyone tells you too. Go through the motions of living.
Sure, things are safe, but safe doesn’t automatically mean fulfilling. 

Or —

2. Do something different.

Be the person you want to be. Do the things you want to do.
Write, design, act, paint, perform, inspire, LIVE.
Make the job up as you go. Work like few do, so you can live like few can.

The first path is the easiest because I­t­ requires nothing of you. The second isn’t necessarily harder, it’s just unpaved. You’re in the woods and there’s not going to be one way through. You’ll have to think on your feet and be creative. You’ll have to be bold and willing to push yourself like you’ve never pushed yourself before. You’ll have to let go of who you were in the past, so you can be who you need to be for the future.

Stay BOLD, Keep Pursuing
