What would you do in your life if all the risk of failure was taken away? Imagine a world where you were always supported and encouraged and anything was possible without limits.
What would you dare to do?
There is a beautifully framed poster in my meditation room that reminds me to Dare to… written by Meiji Stewart. I would like to share a few excerpts with you in hopes that you will be daring. Dare to be bold and live your life in Technicolor! You might even find yourself creating new colors if you are courageous enough.
Ask for what you want
Believe in yourself
Change your mind
Follow your hearts desire
Insist on being yourself
Love and be loved
Nurture your spirit
Speak your truth
Take personal responsibility
Understand more, judge less
Volunteer your time
Walk through fear
I Dare you to indulge in your dreams and write a few down. Now speak your dreams out loud. Put the words I Am in front of what you wish. Here’s an example: I Am a runner. I run effortlessly and continue to amaze myself weekly with my achievements. Give yourself permission to describe it all in detail. The details create an awareness in your senses that awakens you to the reality of, “I can hear it, see it, feel it, smell it, therefore I Am“. I’ve found it very helpful to tape my list to my mirror and read it each morning (You can also use permanent markers. Rubbing alcohol will take it right off).
One of my favorite philosophers is Sark. She is a wildly eccentric writer who embraces living a juicy life. I cannot read her books without grinning. If you are exceptionally daring give some of her ideas a try. However if you choose to lick a mango naked, please be sure to do it in the privacy of your home. I cannot be held responsible for the consequences.
Eat mangoes naked – lick them off your arms
Be rare, eccentric and original
Describe yourself as marvelous
Tell the truth faster
Make more mistakes (that’s how you finally succeed!)
Investigate your dark places with a flashlight
Discover your own goodness
Let the Daring begin!!! I Triple Dog Dare you to share an experience with me in Blogworld! Send me a comment and encourage those around you. I don’t know about you but I simply cannot pass up a Triple Dog Dare. It goes against my code of living colorfully :).
The word Dare or a variation thereof was used 12 times in this article (including the one in this sentence). I hope you got the message 🙂
