“How does one become a butterfly? You must want to fly so much that you are willing to give up being a caterpillar.” ~ Trina Paulus
If you stop and think about it, we are all caterpillars, aspiring to something greater. But at what point do we become brave enough, or impassioned enough to leave the old behind and take flight? To let go?
Fear is the greatest hindrance in our lives. It’s not so much that we will fail, it’s the fear of failure.
Experience teaches us that falling down may hurt, and so we are careful to avoid falling down. And yet, there are times when we fall. It doesn’t kill us, it doesn’t render us incapable of walking ever again. It might bruise or scrape our knees, but we get back up and go again. That’s our wings-the power within to get back up and go again, to fly!
What is holding you back in your life that you need to let go of?
To what great adventure will you fly to when you spread your wings?
Think of the endless possibilities that lie ahead for you. Age, circumstances, finances mean nothing. This is your time. Leave the cocoon and fly!
The only one standing in your way is you.
