“The boat is safest when it is in port, but that is not what boats were built for.” - Pablo Coelho
I love this quote, for me it conjures such a strong image. We were not made to sit around, we were made to voyage, to create, to live...to change.
Fortune favors the brave. Ask yourself: Are you seaworthy? (Or lake-worthy? Or river-worthy?) Do you want to leave a mark of some kind, to make a difference in some way? Do you want to create evidence that your time spent on this planet had significance beyond the everyday stuff?
Then you need to take risks. Start a company, a service or a relationship. CHANGE a company, service or a relationship. Build some as-yet-unimagined thing that will enhance the lives of others, and your own. Set sail, Sinbad.
