“Why not go out on a limb? That’s where the fruit is.” – Mark Twain
Go Out On A Limb
Why not go out on the limb? Honestly, what holds us back from taking some chances anyway? Some of us like to call it procrastination, but I think a lot of it is associated with fear.
Fear of failure, and in some cases, fear of disaster, but it doesn’t always have to be one extreme over the other. Nothing is going to change unless we take steps to change it.
It doesn’t matter if you are struggling in addiction right now, struggling in recovery, or living and loving life, taking a leap of faith and chasing your dreams by going out on a limb could be exactly what you need.
Getting into recovery is definitely a perfect example of this. How many of us made that ultimate leap of faith towards a new way of life? Looking back on it now, how amazed are you that you took that chance? It’s honestly a miracle and all seemed to fall perfectly into place. Knowing that experience, many of us took other leaps of faith in recovery and brought them into new careers, homes, relationships, etc…we saw that when we go out on a limb, amazing things can happen. As a result, we share with others who have not yet experienced this and tell them that this can happen for them too, and believe it.
Just for today, get out there and take a chance at living the life you were always meant to live. Go out on the limb and grab that fruit.
