Author R.A. Salvatore said, “I have come to know that death is an important thing to keep in mind – not to complain or to make melancholy, but simply because only with the honest knowledge that one day I will die can I ever truly begin to live.”
When you realize the journey is finite, it takes the fear out of trying. I mean, what have you got to lose?
There will be those who say you are wasting your time, and those in positions of power who might challenge you because you may be inadvertently challenging their way of doing things.
R.A. Salvatore also said, “Because when we reach, when we seek that place we have only seen in our imagination, we threaten the order of things, and threaten most especially the place of those who have found a better roost.”
You can’t let the naysayers stop you. The clock is ticking for all of us. And no one on their death bed lamented that they didn’t spend more time at work or failed at too many things. They almost always regret the things they didn’t try. The dreams left unfulfilled.
So start small, but start today. You will never regret it.
