Don’t be afraid to go out on a limb. That’s where the fruit is. – H. Jackson Browne
If we don’t stretch ourselves, who will? How will we grow?
We can go out on a limb when we challenge our personal concepts.
How do we view us? Confident, liked, loved, capable and nice or the quite the opposite? Where and when do we short-sell us?
If we’re willing to look deeper into our self, gaining self-knowledge, understanding why we act or react the way we do, then that awareness, not a self-judgment, leads to direct contact with our inner, confident and capable self.
Then we become naturally capable of going out on a limb and taking a risk, growing and grabbing a handful of that desirable fruit!

Ultimately, contentment is more a shift in attitude than a change in circumstances. – Linda Dillow
What do we truly want and where are we headed? These questions are at the heart of all our desires. When we buy things or undertake any life action based on our desires, we are really trying to uncover ourselves. We’re trying to understand and comprehend our place in the Universe. Now there’s a more direct way, a way that can be more fulfilling and joyous.
And that is to be more conscious of what you do, what you desire and why……
You’ve heard of prime numbers but have you heard of the 2 prime questions or the 2 Prime Quests!? They are:
- Who Am I: The quest towards self-knowledge. What keeps me going? Why? What do I really seek? It’s a never ending process to uncover bits of yourself. It’s possible to be very effective in this quest if we’re conscious of our driving motivations.
- Why am I here: A quest towards understanding our place in the Universe. Why are things the way they are? Here you try and understand how you fit into the grand scheme of things…….
So what does this have to do with the quote above? When we begin to know ourselves and our place, a certain contentment starts to replace the constant drive to get something or get someplace. The quest to achieve continues but in a very different way………….
