Blog Quote #672...

Here's Blog Quote #672...
"When a resolute young fellow steps up to the great bully, (the world),and takes him boldly by the beard, he is often surprised to find it come off in his hand, and that it was only tied on --to scare away the timid adventurers." -Ralph Waldo Emerson-

How true is this statement? Don't you find often we are incredibly scared to step out of our comfort zone, and try something new or take on a different challenge? As Emerson so rightly points out-- when we do, we frequently discover that there wasn't much to be scared of after all, except--the unknown.

And one of the beauties of life, is that many a time--the unknown turns out to be fun, refreshing, exciting, and knowledge gaining. Even all the above.

Message: Grab life by the beard. It's not so scary. And more times than not, you will be mighty glad you did!

That's my view...what say you?
