"Jump off the cliff, and build your wings on the way down"
It's not being afraid to live life because life is all we have
It's no regrets.
It's living your life so that when you're old you're not always saying
"I wish I did __________." or "I should have _________."
It's realizing that if you wait to go until you're sure
that you're completely and totally ready,
You'll probably never get there,
because you'll probably never be sure.
It's never looking back with doubt.
It's not optimism that nothing will go wrong;
it's assuredness that if things go wrong it's nothing you can't handle.
It's listening to your heart when it tells you which path to follow,
regardless of the doubts of the mind.
It's not being afraid of other people's reactions,
and not being convinced by other people's doubts.
And it's never worrying that ______ will go wrong.
Because if it does, that's life
And you just find another cliff
And build better wings the next time down.
"If we listened to our intellect we'd never have a love affair. We'd never have a friendship. We'd never go in business because we'd be cynical: "It's gonna go wrong." Or "She's going to hurt me." Or, "I've had a couple of badlove affairs, so therefore . . ." Well, that's nonsense. You're going to miss life. You've got to jump off the cliff all the time and build your wings on the way down." - Ray Bradbury
