I had a few hours on a plane recently and had this thought.
I typed it into my iPad.
If you fear the future you won’t live the present.
The next day I read ‘Screw it, just do it’ by Sir Richard Branson.
It’s a great read and I would highly recommend.
The book revolves around the idea of making decisions and taking on challenges without knowing all the details. What I found most interesting however was that although Branson takes risks, he doesn’t take chances. In other words rolling a dice or making a pure gamble doesn’t make sense but taking a calculated risk does.
When bad things happen, it’s easy to fear the future.
But fear is the biggest disabler out there.
By continuing to make decisions calculated on risk not chance, it is the future we must claim and then absorb the present on our journey.
