Jumping from a high height with no net, soaring through the sky with a parachute, taking a first airplane ride, sitting on a roller coaster, leaning in for that first kiss, taking the first step to a healthier lifestyle… All of these things, and many more, are considered daring… So I want to hear from you. What is the last daring thing that you’ve done whether it be bungee jumping, sky diving, or just taking away your dog’s bowl while he’s eating? What have you done that you might have been dreading before? I want you think long and hard about this. If your answer is, “I don’t know,” or “I can’t remember,” I want you to think of one thing that you absolutely don’t want to do but have to do. Now, go out and do it. Take that first step toward reaching that goal.
We all need to set goals and strive to achieve them, else what are we doing here? Just sitting to pass the time? I don’t think so. We have a brain and motivation for a reason. At the least we owe it to ourselves to better ourselves in some way, shape, or form for as long as we are alive. That, in itself, is what I like to think of as daring. Dare to be better than you were yesterday! Dare to be alive!
