They hired extra security just in case riots broke out but this was unnecessary, as the Auckland residents believed, it was a joke.
One women thought it was too good to be true but decided to investigate in any case. Her curiosity and bravery in spite of being a potential fool earned her a brand new BMW worth over $50 000. She happily left her 15-year-old Nissan at BMW and drove off in her new car.
Why do I love this story and why am I sharing it with you?
Well for me it speaks of someone willing to step out and investigate the unknown even if it meant looking foolish. It speaks of being vulnerable and overcoming limiting beliefs to pursue a dream. It is living an inspired moment and allowing possibilities to flow and be created.
None of us like to look the fool and our fear of looking “foolish” often holds us back from living inspired lives, stepping out, and claiming what is ours.
We often hold onto safety and security while all the excitement and fun is happening in the “fool zone.”
Ask yourself what is laying in your “fool zone” that you are too afraid to claim. It may be something small and seemingly insignificant or huge and life changing but you are limiting yourself, afraid to take the next step.
Can you let go of your fear for looking the fool? Can you allow yourself to be vulnerable and follow your dreams regardless of what others are saying or doing?
Don’t be left kicking yourself because you never tried or believed it would be too foolish.
Allow possibilities to flow, step into your “fool zone.”[/fusion_text][/one_full]
