Take Your Shot

 Take Your Shot “You miss 100% of the shots you don’t take” – Wayne Gretzky

How many shots have you not taken?

Like many of us, you probably have a list of things you have been wanting to do but have never gotten around to. Like writing that book, going to Paris, asking the cute girl with the green eyes in your office for a date, starting your own unique business. And you probably have your reasons for not attempting to do so. Fear of failure, disappointment, or even sheer embarrassment. And whether you think these reasons are valid or not is irrelevant. What is relevant is that another best seller is yet to be born, Paris awaits you with its french cuisine and side walk cafes, the cute girl in the office just might say yes and another Apple, Facebook, or Amazon story is waiting to be told.

Failure isn’t missing the shots, Failure is never even trying in the first place.

And this brings me to another relevant quote:

“I have not failed. I’ve just found 10,000 ways that won’t work.” – Thomas Edison

Where would we be if Thomas had given up, or worse yet, not even taken his shot. We would all be stumbling around in the dark.

It’s time today to take your shot. You know the one I am talking about. You know it very well. You have known it for a very long time.

Today, right now, do one single thing that will move you in the direction of your dream. Make a phone call, send an email, do some research online, join a mastermind group for support, just one simple thing to get the momentum going.

Remember “Whatever you can do, or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has genius, power, and magic in it. Begin it now.”  ~ Goethe

Yes! Dear heart. Begin it now!
