How many times have we put something off or turned down an amazing opportunity, simply because we were worried we might not be able to deliver.

We get a little excited about the new opportunity and the rewards it will bring, then everything turns sour when we start to consider whether we can actually do it or not.

Do I have the right experience, do I have the knowledge required, do I have the balls!

Before you know it, it’s a thanks for the offer but I’m not ready for it just now.

This really does frustrate me.

Lets be sure of one thing… If you think you can or think you can’t, you’re right click to tweet.

Now I can’t claim that quote but I can certainly use it, because it’s right!

If you’re not willing to give something a try, then you’re never going to succeed.

We need to start taking chances and pushing ourselves.

Next time someone says can you supply my company with 10k t-shirts, say yes… Then put your mind to working out how you can do this… (Note: doesn’t have to be just t-shirts!)

Once you agree to do something, you put your mind to work thinking of the multiple ways you can achieve your desired result.

You’ll be surprised of the idea’s you have… challenge you creative side.

You don’t have to have specific answers either.

You may rack your brain (is it rack or wrack!!) and not be able to come up with a solution, but you will then put your brain to thinking of someone who will be able to provide a solution.

You see there is always an option.

People that say there’s no option so I have to quit, are fooling themselves.

There are many options, they are just choosing to ignore all other possibilities and focus on quitting.

So challenge yourself.

Next time someone asks you to do something or for something, tell them yes… even though you may have no idea how you can provide.

Put your mind to working for a solution… be creative.

One thought on “Take The Jump, Then Work On The Parachute”

  1. Hi Damian. I LOVED this post. I’ve always been a risk-taker. Sometimes it’s worked well, other times not so well. (At least I haven’t killed myself along the way!)

    One of the areas I focus on in my writing is overcoming fear. So often people focus on what could go wrong instead of what could go right. Sometimes you have to just go for it and make adjustments along the way.

    Good inspiration for me today.

    All the best,
