Don't Forget Your Boldness

Many individuals on the path of life are living a timid and safe existence. They're afraid to leave their comfort zones for fear of failure or lack of belief in themselves.

Bold and decisive action away from your established comfort zones is what gives spice and flavor to life. And in many cases, amazing wealth as well.

Author Joe Vitale says that "Money likes speed". However, I think it is really boldness and decisiveness that attract money, rather than just the speed. Speed often accompanies bold and decisive action.

One of my favorite quotes about boldness is by Goethe.

“Whatever you can do or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has genius, power and magic in it.”
There really is an energy that flows when you act boldly, because acting boldly requires that you think boldly. You act in belief and confidence in the outcome. Your whole being vibrates in excitement and anticipation as you "feel" the results as if they have already been achieved!

Don't act rashly or hastily without thinking things through, that will only get you in trouble. But when you have a great idea - pursue it now. Take concrete and committed action steps.

Start writing the book, don't just think about it.

Call for the audition, just pick up the phone and call.

Go talk to the person who could get you that job.

Make a business plan and put the steps in place for your new business.

Create that first website or marketing piece for your internet venture.

Set some extreme goals that will push you into new levels of thinking.

Most people do way too much "thinking about it" and not nearly enough action. The universe rewards those who act boldly and with faith. Security and safety are illusory and greatly overrated. Act boldly in spite of any fear.

You may think it easy for the rich to be bold, yet they acted with boldness and faith first, and then the wealth flowed.

We must walk consciously only part way toward our goal and then leap in the dark to our success. - Henry David Thoreau
