If you want to swim in the sea, you first have to commit to the wave. Standing on the beach, the wave curls in front of you. In that moment, you need to say “yes.” Then relax and dive through it. That is how you dive into the sea.
How many moments in our lives are exactly like that! The wave curls, waiting to embrace us, time is suspended for an instant and we choose. Dive in, or be knocked over. Swim, or be pounded into the sand.
Dive more often. Plunge through the wave with excitement, not fear. Say “yes” more frequently than you say “no.”
