Before he set out on his adventure along the Appalachian Trail that is the subject of the book, he described his situation as, “exciting and daunting, mostly daunting.”
I could certainly relate to this as I’ve had those feelings a few times myself.
Before launching my business, having kids, getting married, even when I first started this blog and every time I speak to groups, I felt excited and daunted, but mostly daunted.
And I suspect that for most of us, when we are about to do anything worthwhile, that’s how we feel.
At that point, we have a crucial choice.
Do we heed the excited part and take action?
Or does the mostly daunted part of our emotions over-ride everything else, distracting us and stopping us from doing what we know we should.
This is my prayer for you today:
That you would put yourself in a position to feel excited and daunted more often.
And that you would act in your excitement, not be intimidated by how daunting the task is.
