"Far better it is to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checkered with failure, than to live in that grey twilight that knows neither victory nor defeat." - Teddy Roosevelt
Are you stymied by the fear of failure? Is there a dream that has been knocking around in the back of your head to venture out and attempt something, but you have never took that first step? I want to encourage you to strongly consider pursuing whatever that dream may be. We were not designed with mediocrity in mind.
Never took a motorcycle ride that was more than 3 or 4 hours on a Saturday? Always wanted to go to Sturgis? Time is a wasting. One of the most enjoyable rides I have ever taken was an 8 hour ride to Tampa/St. Pete for work a couple years back. Yes, it was a long time in the saddle, but boy that ocean sure looked good and the salt air smelled wonderful when I arrived.
Ever thought there was a calling on your life for a certain occupation or mission? A couple of weeks ago I caught up with a friend that I did not had a chance to visit with in almost a year. We quickly got catching each other up on what was going on in our lives. I knew that he, his wife, and daughter had all gone on short term mission trips to Africa, so I knew he would be excited to hear that Allison and I were going to Venezuela. When I told him, I was right. He was quite excited, but he surprised me, too. He and his wife both felt a call to serve there full time and have been making plans to quit their jobs and become full time missionaries. Talk about daring mighty things!
We are here a very short time and there is no guarantees how long we will live or that we will die in our old age in our sleep. So, I suggest living life to its fullest. Dare mighty things!
