Dare to be more?

"Whatever you can do or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has genius, power and magic in it."
-- Johann Wolfgang von Goethe --

I've always admired that quote by Goethe and tried to live my life along those lines - I suspect that it was the inclusion of the word 'magic' that had the most impact on me as an impressionable lad in my mid teens when I first read it.

Whatever the reason, the sentiment stuck with me and I have tried. Choosing to experience a year on a student exchange program in a culture considered to be so different to my own, deciding upon a career that was rather out of the box for me...

Do I dare more? Dare to challenge the norms that keep us on the straight and narrow? I argue that I have but one life, one life to experience all that life can offer...

  1. Sure you can dare.. but be ready to acknowledge and accept that things may not turn out as you expect and deal with it if they do.
