Surfin On Success: SAFETY IS OVERRATED!
Many of our posts are focused on health and nutrition, but we figure that sometimes its fun to mix things up a bit. So today we will be sharing a guest post that was submitted from an inspiring individual: Carlos Hidalgo. He shares with us a tasteful and metaphorically genious piece we hope will bring you positive thoughts and aspirations. After all, mental health is just as important as physical.
Surfin On Success
It’s been said that less than 5 percent of the ocean has been explored. The lifeblood of Earth, covering more than 70 percent of the planet’s surface, is to this day a dark and mysterious part of this world.
The ocean is much like life and it’s potential successes. We live our days on shore where we feel safe and secure.Every now and then we will take a dip in the water and splash around, always conscious of not floating too far from land. The moment we feel we have strayed, we panic and rush to return to “safety”.
This sounds much like the life of mediocrity. The life of someone who fears venturing out into the unknown. The waves of the ocean are like life’s opportunities. Ones close to the shore are small and plentiful, but voyage out and they become greater and more meaningful.While these waves far from shore are much bigger and intimidating, they are only as scary as you allow them to be. So instead of fearing the unpredictable, get a board and paddle toward it. Once you’re out there, stand up and surf. A surfer can submit the most enormous waves and ultimately be its master.
Don’t just be content with the ocean’s soothing waves near the shore; instead paddle out as far as you can go and surf the biggest wave the ocean has to offer.
