Sink or Swim

“Sink or Swim,” he stated very nonchalantly as if my admittance meant little. I had just told the man that I was terrified of continuing on the journey and all he could do was shrug and say, “Sink or Swim.”

Was it really so simple?

He continued, “I know so many people who are constantly telling me about the things they WANT to do or the things they WOULD be doing IF they dot dot dot. You fill in the blank. Its all excuses. Just do it. Either you will swim above your self-doubt or you will sink and drown in it. All you must do is choose. Sink or Swim?

I thought for a moment and then smiled. “I like swimming.”
