Hopefully you watched the video before reading this post. Just sayin’. This hit me HARD! When I say that Steve Harvey was speaking to me, I mean it. EVERY word was 100% true. I’ve actually jumped many times so far and man have I gotten some scrapes, bumps, and had some hard falls that left me bruised but not broken. I’ve flown a few times too. I have been on that cliff that Steve spoke of just hanging out there knowing that I wanted to take that leap but the fear of falling froze me in my tracks. I always knew I had gifts but I did not know what to do with them after a while. I actually started to believe they were useless because this world does not always embrace creatives the way they do other professions.
I often felt conflicted because many of my decisions were not truly at my own will but to appease others. Of course self doubt also played a part in the pool of conflict that I found myself drowning in. I would get so frustrated that my talents ended up tucked away for years only to sneak out every now and then when I would become inspired. Then, fear crept in and they went hiding again. It was a continuous cycle. This was a pattern for me for many years until I made the decision that hanging out on that cliff was boring as hell. It was also just not good for me. Plain and simple. Do you have a gift or talent that you’ve kept tucked away? Is there something you’ve always wanted to do but kept putting it off not because you couldn’t do it but because you made excuses? Speaking from someone with experience, I highly suggest you get off of that cliff and take that jump. You just might find that you can actually fly. Peace and Love !
