In Others’ Words: Bold
“Laugh at yourself, but don’t ever aim your doubt at yourself. Be bold. When you embark for strange places, don’t leave any of yourself safely on shore. Have the nerve to go into unexplored territory.” -Alan Alda, actor
I like bold people.
Those friends who run ahead of me, then stop, look back and ask, “What are you waiting for? Come on! Catch up and let’s do this!”
Their courage dares me to …
… say yes to that opportunity I would have let pass by.
… stop waiting for someone else to lead out and instead be willing to go first and hope others follow.
… get over my failure because, well, we all fall flat on our faces sometime. But not all of us get back up.
… trust God, even when I don’t understand the whys-and-the-why not rhythm of life.
In Your Words: Are you bold? Is boldness an attribute you embrace or one you distance yourself from? When was the last time you were bold?0 I like this!
