Do It Badly; Do It Slowly; Do It Fearfully, But Do It! – Rick Wagoner & Paulette Motzko

This quote startled me at first when I saw it come up on my Twitter feed on my friend Rick’s BigDreamFuel page. But, when I thought about it more it has a huge message.

Many people don’t ever do anything or go after their dreams or what they would love to do because they’re worried about if they will fail. Don’t worry- simply do it.

Sure, you might not be the best at it when you first begin, but with practice, you will get better.

Also, when you do something new, depending on what risks are involved, it might be a little frightening. Take for example a pilot who is taking his or her first flight and grabbing the throddle for the first time. Keeping the plane from wobbling or crashing is fearful.

The medical student performing his or her first open heart surgery.
Now, take you for example. What have you wanted to do that instead of creating an action plan have created doubts and fears?

Take it from me, the only regrets you will have at the end of your life are the experiences you through your own stupidity or crazy fears didn’t follow though with.

Allow yourself to be the happiest and most content you have ever been and know what rewarding work is.
When you follow your dreams, that is what you will come to know face to face.
