If You Were a Tree You’d Have Roots; Instead You’re a Human with Feet (A Message on Moving On) (Soul. Musings. 01/31/17)

Many times, we settle for where we are and for what we have because we think it is safe. We are ruled by the idea of staying because we are afraid of what it will feel like and actually be like to move into a new environment with new people, new opportunities, and new responsibilities.

Why the Fear of Change Will Keep You Back From Greatness

Charles Dickens told a story of a man who had been imprisoned for a significant number of years. While he was in prison, he wished to be free. He dreamed about the day he would walk out of that prison cell into the sunshine of the morning. One day, his wish came true. He was free from prison. Guided by a guard, he was led out of his prison cell, down the hall, and outside the huge prison doors into the brightness of the morning.
