…and that’s where it all happens.

It all starts to unfold once you answer the call that’s been ringing for so long. Maybe you were scared of the journey in front of you so you delayed for as long as you could. But honestly, who hasn’t?

Who hasn’t denied themselves from moving forward because of fear? Who hasn’t limited themselves because of events that happened in the past?

Surely everyone has.

But you don’t have to stay there. You don’t have to allow the events that have unfolded in the past to control the decisions that you make right now. You can see them in a new light. You can begin to heal those old wounds.

And eventually, you can gather up the courage to try again. When you do, that’s when the magic happens. That’s when you grow. That’s when you develop. That’s when you start making movement towards the place you’re truly meant to be.

It takes embracing risk. That’s the secret sauce.

If you focus on the chance that things may not work out, you’ll never move. You’ll never change. You’ll never see what you have the capacity to see.

If you focus on your reasons why you’re doing it – your intentions – then you’ll start making those meaningful steps along your journey.

Can you ever really know what’s going to happen as you head in a new direction? No. No one really can predict the future. But that voice deep within you knows it’s good for you. It knows that there’s heart in the path and that’s all that really matters.

So take the risk. Put your heart on the line. It’s worth it.
