It should go without saying that the voice of the giant in us should be the one that makes the most noise.
Alas, it’s hardly ever so. For the fact that the voice is not often heeded to, it lies dormant in us, while the screeching empty voice of the coward that knows all the negative, pessimistic words takes pride of place.
It does take a whole lot of paradigm shift and practice to drown the voice of ‘I can’t’ and ‘impossible’ to ‘I will and I’m possible.’
It’s equally a very liberating experience when we let go of some of our unfounded inhibitions and just spread our wings.
Even if we do take a splat in the attempt, chances are we must have gained some worthwhile experience.
When we don’t seek or venture, we shall neither find nor gain.
