“If you want to be successful, you have to jump, there’s no way around it. When you jump, I can assure you that your parachute will not open right away. But if you do not jump, your parachute will never open. If you’re safe, you’ll never soar.” -Steve Harvey
Look pass the what ifs, mute the doubters, stop creating excuses to keep you within your comfort zone.
Contrary to popular belief, some of the best decisions you make in life are made when you don’t have all the answers; when you haven’t planned out every detail and assessed all of the risks. It’s true. Some of the best decisions are made when you trust the unknown.
There will never be a perfect time to jump. Fear will always try to talk you out of jumping and there will always be distractions. Jump anyway.
Jump because you’re tired of just existing. Jump because you’re tired of settling for crumbs when abundance is your birthright. Jump because you’re determined not to allow complacency to suffocate your greatness. Jump because you’re afraid of waking up one day only to realize that you’ve drifted through life unfulfilled.
There is a dream planted deep down inside of you. A dream that seems impossible. A dream that scares you. A dream that is whispering, “Jump already!”
In the picture above, I am the one wearing the fashionable elephant floatie. Do you see the look of excitement on my face? I couldn’t swim one bit, but I was fearless. You know why? Because I trusted that elephant floatie with my life- literally. I wasn’t afraid to jump, because I knew that floatie wouldn’t allow me to drown.
God is our elephant floatie.
And He will not allow us to drown. When you jump in faith, you cannot fail. This I know for sure. When you jump in faith, when you say, “My dreams are worth it. I am worth it,” you can be as excited as I was in that kiddie pool, because you know that what you’re jumping into will be so much better than what you left behind.
