how do you step from the top of a 100-foot pole?

Close your eyes. Take a deep breath. Open your eyes and leap!
Nothing in life comes easy. Following your dreams or making the move for a first kiss involves some level of risk. Playing it safe just won’t do. Never settle for something that you know could be better. The not-knowing of how the situation could’ve been will eat you alive.
Life is a casino. Bright lights, smoke and temptation are all around but so are opportunities. If you never take a gamble, you will forever be mesmerised by the flashing lights, thinking what if? Grab the dice, kiss it for luck, give it a little shake and throw it down. The story has two possible endings. Either you win or lose. Whatever happens was meant to be. Most importantly a lesson will be learnt. You can reap the rewards or learn from your mistakes keeping you from doing so.
Everyone in the world has the potential to be great. We might not all find ourselves in the same circumstances but we all have that right, and that is to be amazing. It becomes our responsibility to make that happen. If stepping from the top of a 100-foot pole could lead you to greatness, then do it. Have faith in yourself that no matter what happens, you will continue to step off the top of those poles. Every day we step off the top of poles. Some might not be as high as others but keep stepping. You never know how high those poles could take you.


  1. This is just what I needed to read. Sometimes in life you just have those moments where you feeling low and need the small things to bring back up and remind you that it is a phase and the sacrifice will pay off in the end.

  2. What a powerful and inspiring message. Thank you for sharing.

  3. That's it Lexi Lex! Very powerful words. We have to take risks in order to live. Well done!
