Happy Labour Day! 🛠
One’s horizon is always different. There are two horizons, actually. First is the visual horizon that limits your vision. When you look at the sea and see a beautiful straight line or look anywhere around you and can’t see past the obstacles, that’s the first horizon. It might be miles and it might be inches if your horizon is the wall next to you.
The second horizon is your mindset dealing with the unknown. How you deal with uncertainty and how you manage the fear of not knowing what’s next. That could turn into two things mainly: inspiration and depression. Not knowing what’s behind your visible horizon has sparked ideas and creativity throughout the years, whether it’s hundreds of years ago or a minute ago.
People left their home and sailed away to the end of the world expecting to find something exciting.
Now, how do you treat your two horizons?
Do you move closer to get a better spot so you can see miles away or you let something or someone to stand in your way and obstruct your view?
What about the second horizon, the one that starts when the first one ends? Does it scare or excite you?
“We suffer more often in imagination than in reality,” once wrote Seneca. Most of our worries never happen.
Be courageous and leave the safe port. Only the unexpected storm can prepare you to become a better sailor, or writer, or parent, or entrepreneur, or painter, or anything else you want to become.
