Throw Off the Bowlines!


Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover. ~ Mark Twain


Shake off your doubts and fears. Trust that you’ll figure it out. Draw courage from the times in the past when you were up against a problem and it seemed as if there was no way to solve it but somehow, some way, you did. You figured it out.

If you did it at least once before, you can do it again. Go for it!

Your homework today is to throw off the bowlines and set sail for your dreams.

You can do it!

Post in the comments section how exhilarating it feels to go for it!

I’m so proud of you!

Your Friend and Pep Pal,

  1. I really like the quote at the beginning of this post. It’s a powerful message to be reminded of! Thanks for the great post and the encouragement! I’m “going for it” with my own blog – that feels awesome! 🙂


    1. I’m glad you liked the quote, Vanessa. I, too, find it inspiring.

      Congratulations on your blog! I wish you the best of luck with it.

      You can do it! 🙂
