If you want to be successful, you have to jump, there’s no way around it. When you jump, I can assure you that your parachute will not open right away. But if you do not jump, your parachute will never open. If you’re safe, you’ll never soar!
Jumping can be scary. You never know where or how you are going to land. I have yet to conquer a box jump for the fear that I don’t know how I will land. If I will even make it onto the box. My question is why do I have this fear of jumping? Why do people in general have a fear of jumping, taking a leap of faith?
It really comes down for me a fear of failure. What if I don’t succeed? My inability to jump or take a leap of faith is because my foundation is built on doubt or fear of the unknown. I focus on the what ifs and what I can’t do, I lose all willingness to even try. So here is my proclamation to me. I vow to remove can’t from my vocabulary. I vow to jump and leap as much as I can. I vow to challenge myself physically but also mentally. I vow to take risks. Ultimately with no risk comes no reward. I challenge you all to jump a little more. You may end up with a couple cuts and bruises but the experience will be well worth it. You never know until you try.
