Trust Your Cape

Where do you place your trust when you take a leap of faith?

I was driving today listening to CoffeeHouse and a song (I believe by Eric Bibb) came on the radio about a boy who could fly because he didn’t know he couldn’t. It went something like this:

Spread your arms

Hold your breath

And remember to trust your cape.

What is it you are not doing in your career, life, relationships, as a parent, a friend, a writer, a teacher, an athlete that you’re not doing because you think you can’t? Perhaps you’ve not even analyzed it, or didn’t think carefully about something because you assumed it was beyond you.

The filters of your subconscious may be sabotaging your success and your happiness. Fear gets in the way of prosperity and happiness. Does your current situation really require fear and worry or is it possible there is a opportunity here that might be the answer to your prayers? As I look back on my life, the things that grew me the most (and that I’m most happy about) were those instances where I took a risk and trusted that all was well.

Of course your risks need to be in line with your values, your desires and your passions. These will determine whether or not the end result will bring you peace and happiness.

Don’t allow your belief system filters (or fears) to hold you back; make conscious decisions. Remind yourself that life is about taking risks, otherwise you will find you’re existing as opposed to really living.

Don’t allow others to define who you are. It is impossible to be a failure without your own consent. Likewise, it’s impossible to be a success without your own consent.

So spread your arms, hold you breath and trust your cape.

What or who is your cape?
