How Far Will You Go?

Big Jump How Far Will You Go?How far will you go? How high can you jump? What risks are you will to take to find your destiny…to find what is right for you?

Taking risks isn’t easy. We often have to conquer our fear or insecurities. We have to be ready and eager to jump from the familiar to the unknown. Getting there is often downright scary: What if it doesn’t work out? What if I fail?

The only way we’re going to find out is to risk it! If we’re having trouble making the change, we need to look within ourselves to see what is causing our resistance. Overcome it. This is part of having the will to take risks…over coming fear to make that jump into the unknown.

“Only those who will risk going too far can possibly find out how far one can go.” – T.S. Eliot

The Noble Prize-winning writer T.S. Eliot was talking about symbolism in poetry he wrote the above-mentioned line, but it applies to every aspect of life. Indeed, the quote has been adopted as the slogan for numerous societies and organizations. Before he achieved international fame as a poet, playwright, and essayist,Eliot worked in a bank. By choosing the path of writing…at best, a chancy economic future over a salaried position at an institution…he was clearly willing to risk going too far to see just how far he could go.

Ready, set, go. . . make that same leap into the unknown!!

God bless. ~ Geoff Snyder
