Too many people play it safe in this life. While life should be all about going after what you want, most people opt to settle for what comes easily. Life is about taking risks and chasing your dreams, until you land somewhere that delivers you the greatest amount of happiness.

If you’re looking for the most out of life, you can’t be afraid to make a big move. If you know what you want, you might have to give up all that you currently have to reach your goals. If your dream life is in another state, don’t be afraid to make the moves to get there. The answer to your dreams won’t land on your doorstep — you have to go out and get it.

Before setting out on a journey to improve your life, where do you hope to find yourself at the end of that journey? Who will you be? What type of people will you surround yourself with? What sort of culture will you be immersed in? As you think about these things, you will better understand your motivating factors and exactly what it is you’re seeking to change in your current lifestyle.

Also, if you have a general idea of where you hope to be at the end of your journey, you can be sure that you’re heading in the right direction at any point in time.

On the topic of moving, take the time out of your busy schedule to travel and soak up the wonders of the world. You have all the freedom you allow yourself to have. Gather up what resources you do have: money, clothes, courage. Go explore the world. Find a short-term job in a wonderful place that makes you happy and make a new life for yourself for a little while. You can’t put the world on hold, but you can take hold of the world.

If you know that you deserve more from your current job, go after it. Ask for a promotion, ask to be moved to a different department, ask for a raise, ask for more responsibilities, etc. Do not sell yourself short. You have to take the risk to get the reward. If your superior doesn’t agree that you are a valuable asset to the company, then maybe it’s time to consider looking for a new job.

You have to take the necessary risks to get what you want from life. Let go of fear and allow yourself to explore the unknown. If you aren’t willing to defy the odds and stand up for your passions, then who will? Whatever you are in search of, go out and get it. Only you have the power to make yourself happy and get what you want.

Let go of your inhibitions, don’t let the setbacks get in the way to discourage you, and get started on the path to your dream life. Take risks, embark on a new adventure, enrich your life and most importantly, enjoy the ride.
