What's Holding You Back ?

From my book, The View - One Man's Living Asatru With Help From The Havamal ... 

                                        Dare To Be Great, pages 116 and 117

When you are young, people tell you, "You're too young for that."  Then when you get old, people tell you, "You're too old for that."  If you are an infant or totally enfeebled, these admonitions hold some water.  But I am willing to bet that you do not fall into those two groups; most of us do not.  Moreover, it's more than likely that these naysayers never did a damned thing in their lives other than moving from the couch to the refrigerater.  

Modern buzz words like "think outside of the box" and "move out of your comfort zone" challenge you to take a risk.  That risk can be small or huge, but without risk nothing moves forward; everything remains static, the status quo.  If you want to do or be something special, you need to take risks.  The taste of success is sweeter with the greater level of risk; you need to take a chance.  

So get off the couch and turn off  the television.  Turrn off your computer and cell phone.  Grab a tablet and pen.  Plan out your dream and work your plan.  Go on, dare to be great.  

Havamal, verse 105 - With my tools, I carved out a path for myself.  I risked my life to reach my goals, even though there were those who would stop me if they could.
