What if you could really have a dream that wasn't under control? What if you could begin a journey that would never end? What would that look like? How massive could you dream?
Winston Churchill once famously said, “To improve is to change; to be perfect is to change often.”
Imagine going on the grandest journey of your life that was deep rooted in the indisputable fact that you were going to change every day. You would discover new deep things about yourself constantly, continually bring new people into your life and dive into the depths of your heart you have never entered before. This journey would decide every single day you lived and guaranteed that you were always growing and deepening. This great adventure is possible but it is right around the corner after you confront your deepest fear. Possibly that deep fear is of being alone, not being important enough, or truly failing to make an impact on the planet. that deep fear is only something that you actually know within and have been frightened to tell anyone else. But when you confront that fear and dedicate the rest of your life to a mission, it subsides and the chances of life open up in front of you.
Fantastic things really begin to happen for you.
Life at once starts to shape and form marvellously.
And dreams, well, those dreams you’ve really always had turn into a reality.
Many might think this idea is hooey, but I’ve seen it occur with my personal eyes in my personal life and to the various lives of others I have coached professionally. When you face your fears and opt to go on a voyage, you become the hero of your own story. You give yourself the opportunity to be consistently suprised by life and live in precisely the way that you’re fully uncontrolled by your great fears.
So what will it be today? Fear…or adventure?

There are a couple fears in life that defy what seems logical. The fear of snakes may be one, fear of elevators is another, and even a fear of flying is another. Every single day, hundreds of thousands of aircraft take off and land around the globe, carrying millions and millions of people safely to their end destination. Flying is really one of the safest, if not the most safe, way of travel out there. It is much safer than getting in the automobile, yet over 1/3 of the people still have a fear of flying.
Quite a few people cite various concerns when speaking of their flying fear. Of those, many state a lack of confidence in the navigational systems or even a fear that a routine error on the surface can cause a disaster in the air. Then there are fears of problems with the airplane itself. Quite a few people saw the pictures of the impressive concord crash several years ago and when you’re about to get on an aircraft, just a few feet from the roaring jet engines humming steadily, it seems very difficult to believe that not one single thing could go wrong with such a aircraft or man made engine. Sometimes the very appearance and shape of the airplane does very little to inspire confidence in people who are already having doubts and fears about the ability of the plane.
Then there are the reports of people obtaining deep vein thrombosis.
The fact of the matter however, is that flying is extremely safe. It is one of the wonders of technology that air travel, with all the multitude of potential failures, keep delivering flight after flight, on time and without a hitch. In fact, in contrast to almost all other forms of travel, air travel is becoming safer and safer every year.
The statistics speak for themselves. Do you know what the chances are of having a single fatality on a flight? Well according to the BBC, it is 1 in 16 million. And in the vast majority of accidents where there are fatalities, more than half of the other passengers survive. What this means is that even if you defy all the odds and are on one of the few unlucky flights that does crash, you are still more likely to survive than die in the accident.
However, there is one issue with air travel that the statistics don’t commend so highly. Delays, lost luggage and missing flights are still frequent issues that plague passengers. Luckily, all of these can be covered for with some good, comprehensive travel insurance.
