Our family watched Jack the Giant Slayer the other day. A jolly good romp. Something that the princess said near the beginning stayed with me. She said, "Why do you think I'm running away? Couldn't I be running towards something?" (Or words to that effect.)
It makes you think, doesn't it? If I am running away from something, that is usually fuelled by fear. There is no thought of where I'm going. The priority is simply to get away from where the danger is.
But if I am running towards something, there is a goal in mind, a direction to travel in. There is purpose and intention.
Wouldn't you rather run towards something?
So kick fear in the teeth and run full-pelt towards your dreams!
