You Will Find True Happiness Once You Start Taking More Risks

In creating a life paved by desire and fueled with bone shaking joy, we must be willing to risk it all.

We must be willing to surrender all that we are, in order to become all that we wish to create.

We must be willing to fall at the very feet of who we wish to be.

We must be willing to burn every story, every belief, every awakening that we have subscribed to.

We must be willing to lose it all.

We must be willing to risk broken hearts, empty bank accounts, white knuckles, and bruised knees.

We must be willing to go into the red, again and again.

We must be willing to lose everything which grounds the feet of our existence to this earth.

We must be willing not only to stand at the edge of the cliff, but to free fall, as we leap with our whole body into the unknown of what could be.

We must be willing to stand firmly in our beauty.

We must be willing to be seen — deeply seen — in the vulnerability of all that we are.

We must be willing to rise in our power, ready to embrace the vulnerability, and responsibility, that comes in its hand.

We must be willing to trade in good for great. Tossing the relationships, careers, friendships and clothes aside.

We have to risk being without in order to draw everything we desire within.

We have to be willing to let go of wanting, waiting for the day to come.

We have to be willing to be tireless in our pursuit, and even more willing to give it all up in gratitude for what is each time our head hits the pillow.

We must be willing to know loneliness, intimately, with every single cell in our beings to live in love.

We must be willing to let it all go again and again and again into the abyss of what could be.

We must be willing to surrender our β€œshoulds” at the feet of what we do not even know yet to be possible.

We must be willing to be called a fraud, a phony, an imposter in order to step into our true expression.

We must be willing to be called insane in order to innovate.

We must be willing to be laughed at, mocked, made fun of in order to pursue a path cleared by the light of our own hearts.

We must be willing to become everything that we fear, in order to rise to meet everything which we seek.Β TC mark
