Picture this. You’re a little fish; for the sake of this blog we’ll call you Nemo and you’re at an obstacle in life. This obstacle is named choice, and it appears in the form of an underwater volcano called, Mount Wannahockaloogie. You’re given two choices, they are:
1.Swim through the Ring of Fire.
With this choice, you do not know what opportunity lies on the other side. However, this choice gives you a chance to learn and grow no matter what the outcome is.
2. Don’t swim through the Ring of Fire.
This choice assures that you will be satisfied, as you know what the outcome will be.
Similar to everyday life, we are often faced with this hurdle in which we have to overcome. We have to make choices everyday even if it’s just a simple matter of what you’re having for lunch. If you’re a person who prefers the satisfaction of knowing where you’re going to end up rather than an adventurous person who has no clue, great! But, if you are wanting to grow in a personal sense, a career-orientated sense, or any other sort of sense, maybe consider swimming through Mount Wannahockaloogie’s terrifying bubbles.
The moral of the story is: learn from poor choices, grow from ALL choices, and no matter what, stand firm on YOUR choices. Don’t let a crowd determine the outcome, and definitely do not let the fear of the unknown hold you back. You are the only one who can make the decision to swim through those bubbles, now tell me Nemo, what are you going to do?
