A small step for a man, a Giant Leap of Faith

Just read this stirring piece on Robin Sharma's blog. He has an audience much larger than me, but I still could'nt resist sharing it with my friends here. Probably it moved me more because I'm on one such threshold, poised to leap into the unknown.

"It's stunningly interesting to me how we have the power to - over the hours of this very day - make a decision/choice/commitment that can transform our professional as well as our personal lives forever. This day can be the first day of your new life. The day that changes everything. The day you stopped playing small and stood up for the poetic possibilities your life was meant to be. I get excited just thinking about that. Seriously.

So my question to you is a simple one: what one leap could you make today - that if you made it - would change the game? What one Bold Step could you take that would radically alter the way you think/feel/behave? What New Move could you step into that would lift you into the realm of extraordinary/remarkable/world-class?

Now, today, why not take that step? There will never be a perfect time to be the greatest you. Actually, there will never be a better time than today to make the improvements you need to make to be the leader/human being that you've always dreamed of being. So, why wait? Do It Now."

Your leap could be in a relationship. What stops you from going upto him/her and telling them that they are the centre of your universe?

Your quantum jump could be one like my friend RG. After years of telling his channel partners that the healthcare inudstry had limitless potential, he kicked away his cushioned corporate existence to jump into the fray himself- VP, an almost 8 figure package and the usual jet-setter perks aside.

Your mega bungee jump could be just that- a bungee jump :) Over come those fears which hold us back. Life will go on-for better most likely, than worse .

Salto!

As Einstein once said -- Great spirits have always encountered violent opposition from mediocre minds.

I'd say take the leap! Life does go on.
