Throw yourself into what the day asks of you, and let no thoughts of uncertainty delay your departure. For the only true way to answer the day is to sail into it, despite contrary winds, and let whatever unfolds teach you to master the ship of yourself.
In this short talk, Guy Finley talks about our common need for a higher kind of love that releases us from feelings of fear, doubt and hopelessness.

Question: I am taking the biggest risk of my life and am about to leave a longstanding job for a new home-business opportunity. There is quite a bit of fear in leaving the safety of the known for the unknown. Any ideas on how to make this new adjustment in life and how to quell the uncertainty?
Answer: Here is a good tip in general when it comes to getting ready to step into anything unknown: Strive to do what is in your power while remaining awake to what is not. It is not in your power to control what will occur or how events will transpire. But it is in your power to be awake to the fearful voices that either project some doom or that denounce you for making mistakes. Realize that these fearful states are secretly trying to keep you captive. The only hold they have is the fear they can get you to buy into about “you.” Remember: Do what is in your power, not what is not.
Question: My mom was a very talented professional singer. My daughter has the most beautiful voice I have ever heard and singing is as natural as breathing to her! She is embarking upon a life of medical service but I’m wondering how her talent should best express itself in this life?
Answer: Whenever someone is fortunate enough to have a genuine love of something in this life, one may be sure this love that he or she was given will see to it that it “shines” as needed upon whatever is intended for that person to flower accordingly. Love never fails; it is success itself. If you feel you must do something for your daughter, then just quietly support her wishes, without enabling her. Let the love in her have its head… for it knows far better than anyone what it wants to marry.
