Inspirational Quote: Swim with the Sharks

August 1, 2011 Katja Presnal

Have guts to swim with the sharks.
Don’t let sharks to prevent you from enjoying the ocean.

Do you sometimes feel you want to swim in the ocean of life, but there are so many “sharks” that make you scared and prevent you from living life to the fullest?

Have guts to “swim with the sharks”.
Take risks.
Be bold.
Be brave.
Make a plan.

Think what would be the worst case scenario, and why you are so afraid of that happening. Thankfully many of the things we are scared in our lives are far less scary than literally being eaten by a shark. We are often held back by things like worrying what other people think of us, or failing doing something in the front of others. I don’t know about you, but if I see someone failing in the front of me, I don’t think bad about that person; I give the person credit for trying and will try to help that person to make it the next time!

I have learned more in life when I have been “bitten” than when I haven’t even tried. I fail all the time. I make mistakes, bad things happen to me, things don’t go the way I want. I have just chosen to live life to the fullest, no matter what. I have chosen to take failure as an opportunity for something new, I have taken every single lemon life has given me and made it into lemonade, and oh boy life can be sweet when you just decide so.

Don’t let the “sharks” prevent you from enjoying what the beautiful ocean of life has to offer, or your life will go by you just standing on the shore. And when life bites you, bite it back.
