Take a step into the scary wilderness.

November 19, 2012 § Leave a comment

Yellowstone National Park contains some of the world’s most jaw-dropping scenery, wildlife, and unique wonders found nowhere else in the world.

Annually, over 3 million people visit Yellowstone National Park.

And yet…

Less than 1/10 of 1% get more than 100 yards from pavement.

Why?

We are afraid. Afraid of the grizzly bear that might be watching us. Afraid of the wolf  that might be hungry. Wolve(s). Maybe there is more than one out there. Perhaps a charging buffalo. Or an exploding geyser underneath our feet.

We crave safety. The safety of the car nearby in case “something happens”. The safety of the predictable. The safety of metrics. The safety of forecasting. The safety of due diligence. The safety of best practices done elsewhere.

By not stepping into the unknown, we rob ourselves of true adventure, the adventure of speaking up when no one else will, the adventure of truly and passionately sharing what is on your heart, the adventure of telling a group of people that you are convinced that this organization, ministry, company can be so much more than it is.

Go. Be part of the 1/10 of 1%.
