The longest mile

Keeping with the theme from the past few posts about empowering yourself I’ve been thinking about what it means to go the extra mile whether in our personal or professional lives. The above quote speaks volumes to me as I feel like there aren’t enough people who decide to take that extra step in whatever it is that they’re doing. Perhaps they think about it but something draws them away from jumping over the wall and going for it. I wonder why that is. Are you scared of the unknown? I’d make the argument that we venture into the unknown all the time, but a lot of the time it’s in such small fractions that you don’t even realize it. The times where it’s a big jump into the deep end is where we often stop and back away from the edge.
