Explore, Dream, Discover

I received this as an email from my friends at ilearningglobal.tv. They call it the Leading EDGE. I liked it so much that I am posting it here unedited. Thanks ilearningglobal.tv

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” – Mark Twain  

The success of your life and businesses ultimately stems from what your give your time and your attention to.  This is why it is of the upmost importance to determine what matters most and then to commit to spend your days doing it.


This doesn’t mean you won’t have seasons of sacrifice where you will spend a huge amount of time on just work or building your business or career.  Far too many, however, end up spending their days, by default, on things that aren’t truly important to them.  Work can be important, it can be irrelevant or it can become a means to a greater more fulfilling path.  It is simply a matter of choice.


It is the path not taken, the opportunity left unexplored, the friend not visited, the idea not pursued that create the greatest disappointments in life and business.  Ask yourself this weekend, “What is holding me back or tying me down to a harbor of hesitation and even regret?”


Decide today to throw off the bowlines of worry, fear and discouragement.  Get out of the safe harbor with it’s comfort zones of mediocrity and the safety of skills already acquired.  You and your business were designed to set sail for a greater success yet unseen which is to be found on the seas and distant shores of extraordinary places.


You will never know how far you can go or what you can achieve until you commit to go – and go far.


Begin your journey today – it is the journey of a lifetime.  Set sail.  Explore.  Dream.  Discover. Do!


Your Servant,

Ron Finklestein
