“Freedom lies in being bold.” ~ Robert Frost
You’ve been waiting on the edge of your seats haven’t you!? Well, drum rooollll please….
“Courage! What makes a king out of a slave? Courage! What makes the flag on the mast to wave? Courage! What makes the elephant charge his tusk in the misty mist, or the dusky dusk? What makes the muskrat guard his musk? Courage! What makes the sphinx the seventh wonder? Courage! What makes the dawn come up like thunder? Courage! What makes the Hottentot so hot? What puts the “ape” in apricot? What have they got that I ain’t got?… Courage!”
That’s right! Courage! Don’t be like The Cowardly Lion in the 1939 Classic The Wizard of Oz, get the courage to make the change you need to reach your goals. FAKE it, if you have too! You may surprise yourself at how convincing you can be at it. Change is not easy, but a necessary part of life, and of goal destination. When your courage falters, remind yourself, “If I don’t make things happen for myself, who will!?” You need to make this change to be happy, and to reach your goal. Also, ask yourself, “if I don’t make this change, will I be happy?”. The answer is most likely no, so do it! Take responsibility for your own happiness, and goal attainment, blaze the path to the finish line, and have the courage to make a change for the better ending… happy ending… goal attainment.
P.S. I also do not want to ignore the fact that today is Father’s day, and I would like to wish a Happy Father’s day to all the amazing, devoted, and inspirational dad’s out there, without guidance, support, and a helping hand, lives would be much less rich and full. Remember…
