Why are you here?

“The two most important days in your life are the day you are born and the day you find out why.” – Mark Twain

 

Why are you here? 

What are you trying to do?

Why is that important?

 

I believe that there's more to life than you live, you die and in between you consume, get unfortunate hair-dos and maybe breed mini-yous.

 

All of us have secret dreams and songs in us.  Sometimes we glimpse it and dare to speak its name.  Sometimes we bury it under fear of what happens when we grab the brass ring. 

 

We talk ourselves out of the big dream because it seems childish, unrealistic, silly.  Instead we go for smaller goals, hoping that we don't put ourselves in the path of potential failure and ruin. 

 

Maybe we don't see that the real failure is failing to live while we're alive.

 

What would it take to be courageous in the face of failure, in the fear of judgment of our strangers and loved ones? 

 

What would it mean for us to feel the fear and do it anyway because the agony of a dream deferred is worse than the terror of failing?

 

To be lion-hearted, to be courageous, to be unapologetic in the quest to fulfill our destiny--that is the real challenge. 

 

As Amelia Earhart once said, "The most difficult thing is the decision to act, the rest is merely tenacity."
