DTD #20: Don't Die With Your Music Still In You

We all have a special gift to give to the world, a song to sing. Whether it's through our art, our humor, or our sparkling personalities, we all possess a gift to make this world a better place. 

Many of us, however, face resistance when searching for our gifts. Finding what lights our souls on fire is an iterative process and it often takes trying and failing at many different things. We have to be willing to suck (at least initially) when we start a new job, a new project, or a new lifestyle. We are going to stumble and we are going to fall down. This is all part of the learning process; you will look back at those difficult times as the defining moments you'll always cherish. 

The alternative is to never try at all. It's being so concerned with what other people think that you never reach your full potential. If you don't have the courage to take the first step, you will never discover your hidden talents and passions. And when you are laying on your deathbed, you will have the sad and soul-crushing realization that you still have more to give. 

But it will be too late. 

The world needs to hear what you have to give. 

Be fearless, Dare to Dream. 

Don't let the fear of failure stop you from trying something new. 

Please, for our sake, don't die with your music still in you.
