We all have dreams, hopes, wishes. Sometimes we even have secret dreams, being afraid to share them with the people around us. How many times you wished for something and you just let it go, telling yourself that dreams are only dreams and that normal people are just realistic, they don’t walk around dreaming? How many excuses you found, managing to shut down your inner voice?
What happens to you knowing that you want something and you don’t even try very hard to achieve it?
You die, bit by bit, every day…
It’s time to be you, it’s time to be free!
Here are the main ingredients to achieve every goal in your life: knowing what you want, confidence in yourself, determination, time, dedication, patience.
The ultimate key: assuming the risk.
We can’t gain without loosing, life it’s a continuous transformation, it’s like business: you have to invest in order to produce and profit.
Which is the biggest investment?
I found this beautiful motivational poem, written by William Arthur Ward and I don’t think there is a better way of explaining what’s the risk.
For me it was a revelation, it changed my way of thinking and even if it sounds simple, the words are a big impact on each one of us.
I hope that you gonna love it as much as I do and that is gonna change your life!
To laugh is to risk appearing a fool,
To weep is to risk appearing sentimental.
To reach out to another is to risk involvement,
To expose feelings is to risk exposing your true self.
To place your ideas and dreams before a crowd is to risk their loss
To love is to risk not being loved in return,
To hope is to risk despair,
To try is to risk failure.
But risks must be taken because
the greatest hazard in life is to risk nothing.
The person who risks nothing,
does nothing, has nothing, is nothing.
He may avoid suffering and sorrow,
But he cannot learn, feel, change, grow or live.
Chained by his servitude he is a slave
who has forfeited all freedom.
Only a person who risks is free.”
By William Arthur Ward
