Get Out Of Your Own Way
While scrolling through Instagram today, I happened upon the Explore page and one video, in particular, caught my eye. It was a woman standing on top of a high dive…afraid to jump. It was posted by Will Smith, and he’s giving one of those uplifting do-gooder speeches that I usually watch with rolling eyes and skip. For some reason today I listened.
“You have to be able to go. The hesitation is the thing that really messes up the chances of having your dream. Get out of the middle. The moment of pushing off is pure friggin’ terror. There’s nothing to hold onto. We’re all trying to hold onto something. Trying to hold onto an idea…a person. You’ve got to get comfortable falling. Life is dangerous, and the only way to really enjoy it is to jump and be free.”
