License To Choose (0:21)
Truth is, after you’ve read the latest self-help books, watched the current TED videos, attended your umpteenth seminar, and finished reading your favorite blog. And after your pastor gives his blessing, your Rabbi says Shalom and your guru offers Namaste. And after your eyes have closed, your mind has opened and your last stick of incense has burnt out, the only thing you’re really left with is a choice: Play it safe, OR raise the Bar. Stick to the road your on, OR take the high road, which may be bumpy but yields higher benefits. Hold back and hope, OR step out, way beyond who you’ve been, and reinvent your world. Every day we have the opportunity to take what’s already there and accept it, OR take a look at what’s not there and manifest it. You’re a crazy, creative, genius artist/trep, it’s your choice.

Hi Michael. It's thought provoking. I just made a song with a legend, who is now on the road with all the trimmings, and I just came home from teaching children some acedemics, pulled out my guitar at noon to practise for a gig coming up that will not be a big deal.. Am I not reaching for the impossible? Yes I am. I am still reaching but reaching from a different road. We will see where the road leads...just to follow. Have a great day:-) Rachel

There is a Parable /short story about Caterpillars and butterflies... The smartest caterpillar goes to a high place to meditate & ask for guidance in making the best choice for the future! A voice tells the lead Caterpillar to tell his followers to be fearless & keep the faith --- the voice says to gorge themselves and then climb a tree, crawl out to the end of a branch, hang upside down, wrap themselves in excrement, and then take a nap! When they wake up they will no longer be fat & ugly worms but rather they will be beautiful & be able to FLY! Not telling was the safe road! but not the choice that resulted in being beautiful as well as being able to fly above all the caterpillars!!! For me this is a reminder!!!
Great story! Thanks! —Michael

One small step for J Michael Dolan, one very large step for the rest of us. You make it sound easy. Could it be that easy?

Thanks for the smiles. I love being called a "crazy, creative, genius artist/trep" A lot of life is knowing there are choices. Many people do not know this, I did not always know this.

Listen to others opinions (and there are so many) then follow your own truth.

To Jarred: Wasnít every choice you ever made the right one at the time you made it?

To be Honest, Iíve made so many wrong choices that I'm afraid to swing for the fences anymore.

Thing is, every minute, every hour, every day we choose. By doing, by not doing. By spending one more hour, one more day in the safe cocoon. Or by leaping up higher than eve before? Every day becomes what will I choose today?
