When we start contemplating living our dreams, we first bask in the possibility of what could be...... and then we come back to reality.

As we actually start to consider taking actions TOWARDS our dreams, that is where the fears, insecurities and doubts come up.
And the biggest block of all is the need for security and certainty.

You see, you can’t been a Seeker on The Path and value certainty over the adventure of creating yourself. We have to learn to let go of our attachment to what’s comfortable, easy and safe and learn to become strong enough in our Faith to not avoid or prevent uncertainty, but to be solid within uncertainty.

The Path is one of uncertainty, of stepping out into the unknown and of being able to remain solid even when we don’t know what the next moment will bring.

So many people will never realize their dreams because they place certainty so high in their lives that they never break free and dive deep into the unknown.

It’s a rare individual who feels the fear and does it anyway. It’s an uncommon person who steps out into the unknown and goes ALL IN with their dreams.

..... our goal is to step out even though we are terrified of the unknown.

We are journeyers,

we are travelers,

we are Seekers on a Path into our own Highest Potential.

We are not promised certainty from the world, but rather from our Faith.

It takes a strong person to step out into the unknown, day in and day out, to risk being wrong, to risk making huge mistakes when the stakes are even bigger and to be willing to fail. It takes an even stronger person to fail and then to pick themselves back up and realize that failure is only failure if we give up. Instead, this strong person sees failure as a lesson, as an education and as a test of how much we truly believe in ourselves.

You see, success on The Path comes in two forms: the first is being able to keep going when you would normally quit

the second being self-realized enough to be free from or at least understand your fear.

As Russell Simmons says, “Money doesn’t make you happy, but happy can make you money”.
