Let Loose The Hounds!

I have always been a Shakespeare fan and one of my favorite lines from Julius Caesar is “Cry ‘Havoc!’, and let slip the dogs of war.” It motivates and inspires me to let loose the hounds and to go after what I want.

Just like with dogs, sometimes we keep our goals, our dreams, and our aspirations on a tight leash. We might not even ever let them out of the yard! Or when do take them out it is for a quick and easy walk around the block, lacking any sense of excitement or adventure.

Let loose the hounds and let slip the dogs of your dreams. Go for it! For me, Shakespeare’s line is often used as a rallying cry for me to let go and to go all in. Don’t hold back, don’t procrastinate, don’t hesitate, and don’t be afraid.

Be confident! Sure failure is always an option but don’t fear it as failure is often your best option.

Let loose your hounds… choose now to pursue your dreams and to step up towards bigger goals in life. Draw in a deep breath and take that leap because life is just a game anyway.

What dogs are you holding back in your life? What dreams can you let loose of today and allow to run free? Let them run and see what happens.
