Doing something new.

I read a passage from a book yesterday and I thought it was kind of fitting. Its from a man named Robin Sharma who wrote "The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari". He's trying to show people that this world we've created has taken us away from our true selves.

"Most people spend the best years of the their lives in places of the known. They lack the courage to venture out into foreign territory and are frightened to leave the crowd. They want to fit in and are afraid to stand out. They dress like everyone else, even if doing so doesn't feel right to them. They are reluctant to listen to the call of their hearts and try new things, refusing to leave that shore of safety. They do what everybody else does. In doing so, their once-shining souls begin to darken. Success lies in being true to yourself--and living life on your own terms."
