My face flushes with frustration; I cringe as I hear the most untrue words ever spoken.
The only thing limiting you is your confidence, your view of who you are, and your misconception that you have to be ready or more skilled to make your dream happen. Do you think the first photographer had training? Of course not! There were no techniques. He just went out and started trying and learning from his mistakes. Taking one step towards your goal, dream, or lifestyle is farther than the majority of people in the world, because they let themselves be crippled by fear.
Here are a few quotes that get me fired up to push on, aim higher, and live a more passionate life.
#9 “From failing, you learn. From success … not so much.” – Meet the Robinsons
#8 “Be yourself; everyone else is already taken.” – Oscar Wilde
#7 “You only live once, but if you do it right, once is enough.” – Mae West
#6 “Don’t think about what could go wrong. Even the worst outcome has a better story than dreaming a hollow dream.” – Domanic Jordan
#5 “I never worry about the future, it comes soon enough.” – Albert Einstein
#4 “Fear is not real. It is a product of thoughts you create. Do not misunderstand me. Danger is very real. But fear is a choice.” – Will Smith
#3 “The most dangerous thing you can do in life is to play it safe.” – Casey Neistat
#1 “Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us.

There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.” – Marianne Williamson
Beyond all, we need to remember that Christ sacrificed everything on the cross. He did this to free us from the sin that is keeping His children from living a full life. We then should live like He lived, representing our King in all aspects of life. If that isn’t motivation, I don’t know what is…
