“When fear makes your choices for you, no security measures on earth will keep the things you dread from finding you. But if you can avoid avoidance – if you can choose to embrace experiences out of passion, enthusiasm, and a readiness to feel whatever arises – then nothing, nothing in all this dangerous world, can keep you from being safe.”

I needed to read this quote several times to realize the deep truth within Martha’s words.

According to Martha, when you allow fear to make your choices for you, Finding Your Way in a Wild New World by Martha Beckthose very things you fear will find you! Yet, if you embrace passion and enthusiasm in your life, you can feel safe!

Seems to me we would have much richer lives if we decided to let thing just work their way through our lives.  Stop worrying about whether or not we have enough money, enough sales, enough time.  Let’s focus on what we want to do, move in that direction, and let the rest work itself out.

What can you do today to embrace life with more passion and enthusiasm?
