“Fearlessness means taking the first step, even if you don’t know where it will take you. It means being driven by a higher purpose rather than by applause. It means knowing that you reveal your character when you stand apart, more than when you stand with the crowd.”
There are many important decisions we have already made in our lives and there are decisions that we will be making in the future that will be just as important. One decision that must be made now is for us to choose to live a life of fearlessness as Chadwick Boseman encourages in today’s quote. By choosing to take that first step of no longer living in fear even when face with the unknown and where that first step will take you is a huge decision and risk that is well worth it.
We do not want to live our lives remaining at the starting line as it is important that we all get to pass “Go” and make our dreams and aspirations into a reality. It is vital that we do things for the cause rather than the applause. This choice in itself will separate us from those that seek that external glory rather than the internal glory of serving others in their time of need. Our driver as Chadwick Boseman says should be our purpose, that higher purpose.
Choosing to stand apart from the crowd and on your own two feet shows courage and grit which will ultimately reveal who you are as a person and what you truly value in life. Decisions are all around and although they will never be easy, choosing to live a life of fearlessness is one we can ill afford not to take.
What does this quote mean to you and how can you apply today’s message towards developing your responsible decision making skills?
