Risk You Must…

The Power Of Choice…


On the road to success, the road less travelled, there are potholes, small ones — big ones — humongous ones!  You have no control over the potholes being there. You did not put them there, and, you can count on them being there. So, chances are that you will hit one of them.  That’s the risk — and risk you must.  Why? cause there’s a purpose to potholes. . . to refine you — not to ruin you.  To test your faith, your courage, your integrity.  So risk you must.  That’s the choice you must make.  Otherwise those potholes will ruin you.


Not “stupid” risks — calculated risks.  For example:  you’re on the top floor of a 30 story high-rise and need to get to the ground floor.  You have three choices: elevator, stairs, or jump.  Two are calculated risks.  One is the “stupid” risk.  And to get where you want to go — risk you must.


So it is with life and self mastery.  Every time you risk, fall, and chose to pick yourself up, dust yourself off, learn from your failures and move forward, you will discover that you are more than you thought you were, that you can do more than you thought you could do, and you can have more of what life has to offer than you ever thought possible.  So Risk You Must!
