On the Brink

“How often on the brink of some discovery

Have we stood tottering, and yet still kept our ground…”?   ~ Thomas Otway

We look over the edge of possibility and we dream. We have the tools at our fingertips to utilize and make the dream a reality, and yet we freeze in our tracks. The “fear” of the unknown venture appears to outweigh the rewards of new territories discovered. Where is the pioneering spirit?

 The bold have nothing to lose, or so it seems. We, the little lambs, travel in the ruts that others initiated. We have fallen into the deeply carved mindsets where middle ground is the best ground. The idea and discovery pioneers of old would have turned the page on life with a whimper, if they had quelled the boisterous command of “go!”

The fear speaks loudest right before the breakthrough. Don’t listen to that corrupt voice. Work your dream and take others with you on the new path.
