I’ve come to realize in my life that I set myself up to fail by hedging my bets. What do I mean by that? I have a back up plan under the guise of being prepared ready to go in case my first plan doesn’t work. In doing so however I put it in my head that my plan isn’t going to work.
I am not saying that there should never be a “Plan B”…there are some things that aren’t in our control and could go a a couple of ways. Being prepared for those options is a good thing. But that is not what I’m talking about here. For those actions that are in my control by constantly having a “Plan B” ready my “Plan A” never has a chance. Is it any wonder why when it doesn’t work that I reinforce the belief that I will never get to where I want to be?
Today’s Simple Step is to “let go of the ledge” and take the risk necessary to achieve your dream. Quit hedging your bet with contingencies. Give your dream 150% of your effort with total belief in your success. Your ledge may be a foot off the ground or perhaps you have worked your way up to the 30th floor. Regardless…take a bold, Simple Step, toward your dream. It may be scary…but it sure feels good!
