Grow your wings…

“Sometimes you’ve got to jump off cliffs and grow wings on the way down.” (Ray Bradbury)

man jumping off cliffLife is full of opportunities to use Bradbury’s saying. We all face things that we’ve never done before or challenges that we have no idea how to overcome. The timid just back away from such things, while the adventuresome take Bradbury’s advice to heart and jump off the cliff of uncertainty and figure things out (grow their wings) on the way down.

I’ve always tended to initially be cautious, perhaps overly so; however, I’ve also found that whenever I do just jump off the cliff the results have been exciting and fun.

Are you the adventuresome type or do you steer clear of taking chances on unknown things? You’ll never grow your wings if you don’t try to fly.
