{Wednesday Wisdom} Childlike Optimism


As children we believed in Santa, the Easter bunny, the tooth fairy, Martians and even monsters in our closet.  When we were kids we believed ANYTHING was possible.  Ask the average 4-year-old what they want to be when they grow up they will probably say, “A superhero, robot and race car driver.”  Children are the most optimistic people on the planet!  Mainly because they haven’t learned about disappointment yet.  They haven’t grown cynical and negative because something didn’t go their way.  I think that is the reason so many adults fail to live up to their true potential.  We lose our childlike optimism.  We come up with a million reasons why we CAN’T do something or why it won’t work.  And you know why?  Because we are afraid.  Afraid of failure.  Afraid of success.

We’re afraid to believe in ourselves. Because we don’t want to be accountable or responsible.  Meanwhile life is passing us by.  Time is marching on and we get older never having realized our dreams.

Today I challenge everyone to think back when you were a child and how you planned to conquer the world when you grew up.  It’s not too late to make your dreams come true.  Start today. Unafraid.  Dust off that superhero cape and get to work!
