Stop Balancing the Boat & Learn to Swim


A lot of us have honed the skill of balancing the rocking boat.

We've learned to twist ourselves this way or that.  We've chameleon'd ourselves into whichever image they say is most palatable or popular in that split second of time. 

We work, live, chat, smile, build, earn and we do it all by steadying the boat with the free hand.  If no free hand exists we use a foot, an elbow, a pinky finger ... any appendage to keep the boat from tipping over & landing us in the drink.

Frankly, I'm done with it.

I don't waste time, effort, or passion to steady boats anymore.

Instead, I learned how to swim & tread water.

The only thing to fear is fear itself.
