MAKING THE CASE FOR JUMPING
Scientists estimate the probability of your being born at about one in 400 trillion. The fact that you’re alive to read these words is an absolute miracle! So here’s my question to you:
What are you gonna do about it?
If you’re not sure, let’s start with what we know:
- You are a miracle!
- Of the 7.4 billion people on this planet, you are the only one with your unique gifts. No one else will ever be able to do what you do in the way that you do it!
- You have a purpose for being here!
- You want to do work you’re passionate about and that makes a difference in the world!
- ANYTHING is Possible!
It’s time to take what we know about you and create a life around what you’re passionate about! But like me in the airplane, you have to take a step outside your comfort zone to find and live your purpose.
You’ve got to jump!
“ONE MINUTE TO JUMP!”
As the plane levels off at 14,000 feet, the deafening roar of the engines drown out all conversation in the cabin. I shout, “One Minute To Jump” and suddenly you realize you’re sixty seconds from destiny. You’ve waited a lifetime for this moment! And now your purpose is one step in front of you.
The weight of the parachute pulls you backward and you realize it’s actually the weight of always choosing to do what was expected instead of what you wanted. Clutching the straps, your spine stiffens as you rearrange the backpack. Moving confidently toward the door your announce, “This time I’m gonna do what’s right for me!” in defiance of any and all who want you to live their version of your life.
As the door opens, the cold wind of fear blasts your body pushing you backward again. For a moment you reconsider the decision to jump. But then something amazing happens; you step to the edge of the open doorway and see a world of possibilities in front of you. Adrenaline floods your body when I call out, “JUMPERS AWAY!” Then as you lean into the wind and step out of the plane and into your new life, you realize that you’re exactly where you were always meant to be.
