The Wisdom of a Child

Remember when you were a child and someone would ask you what you wanted to be when you grew up? What did you say? It might have been something like a baseball player, doctor, teacher, writer, or artist. And did you grow up and become the person you wanted to be then or are you still just dreaming about it?

Children don’t tell us they want to grow up to be something great and important on a whim. They really believe they can be anything they want. They do not have the fears and limiting beliefs that we gather as we grow up. They think that all they have to do is want it and work towards it and they will reach their dream. And you know what? They’re right.

If there is something you have wanted to do or become but haven’t tried to attain it yet, its time for you to regain your childhood outlook on life. Become fearless. Know that anything is possible. You can still be a great athlete—look at me, a gold medal tennis champion at the age of 63. You can still return to school and become a doctor or a teacher. You can start your life as a writer or artist by sitting down right now with pen or brush, signing up for classes, and joining art and writing groups. You can do or become anything you want. You are only restricted by your hesitation and fear.

With this unwavering belief that anything is possible, along with a few tips and tricks like the ones you can find in How to Ignite Your Passion for Living, there is nothing you can’t accomplish. Just let go of all your excuses and limiting beliefs and start making them real today. A child wouldn’t wait and neither should you.
