Quote of the day for Monday, April 11, 2017
In the cave you fear to enter lies the treasure you seek.
If it scares you a little then it’s probably the next step. The keynote speaker at #CCN17 – Craft Content Nashville – was Angus Nelson. He dared us to move out of our comfort zone – out of the box – and do something. It only happens – whatever the “it” may be – if I am brave enough to step into the unknown of that next step.
It can be a scary place on the edge of doing something. It seems like the right place to be, but it also looks like a long way to fall. We dance on the edge of trying – and as long as we are on the edge we are not stepping out into all of our possibilities.
The cave looks dark and scary – not because it is but because of the place where you are standing. The comfort of the familiar always seems brighter and safer than the unknown. When you step into the cave you may likely discover that it has a light all its own.
Take a step.
Take a leap.
Take a chance.
The only way to be certain to fail is to never try.
Check out the cave and begin to live out the treasure that it holds.
