A reflection upon today’s quote.

“The most effective way to do is to do it.” —Amelia Earhart

What great wisdom in this statement. We tend to wait to do most things.

We are never ready. We are afraid.  We fear ridicule. We question our capabilities. We are filled with self-doubt, apprehension and angst.

But why?  What could possibly go wrong if we just do it?

We may not do it well. We may be poked fun at. We may be brought down by those who don’t have the courage to try.

Or we may be pleasantly surprised.

We have no way to predict what the outcome will be, even if we make a good guess.

But we owe it to ourselves to try.

When we fail, we learn.  When we learn, we grow.  When we succeed, we gain confidence upon which a foundation for future success is built.

Keep this in mind today – then whatever it is you’ve been afraid to do, go do it.
