Why Taking Risk Is A MUST

“There are risks and costs to action. But they are far less than the long range risks of comfortable inaction.”– John F. Kennedy

Some people view life as a set of choices with varying degrees of risk. They then make choicesbased on risk mitigation rather than potential gains.The truth of the matter is, if you want to make the most of your life and really experience everything you truly desire, you have no choice but to RISK.

This means taking risks despite fear. Taking risks despite being uncomfortable. If the end goal isimportant enough, the uncomfortable risk can be handled and managed.BUT you must find the end goal that is worthy of this sort of undertaking.

Use today to focus on those powerful goals and the powerful (and likely “risky”) actions that you can be taking to advance towards those goals.Focus on the win and accept the risk as the price you pay for the dream. Will it be worth it? You better believe it.

Responding, Rather Than Reaction, To The Obstacles In Life

“Health, happiness and success depend upon the fighting spirit of each person. The big thing is not what happens to us in life – but what we do about what happens to us.” — George Allen

Life happens. Good things happen and bad things happen. They happen to everyone and seemingly in a totally random set of events and circumstances.We can argue about why these things happen and what causes certain events to take place but the fact remains…

We can choose to react to life. Or we can choose to respond to life.When you react you do so from a primitive mindset of self preservation and it usually translates to something negative. We think thoughts like “OF COURSE this HAD to happen to me.”

When you respond to life, you can be more proactive. You can look at even the most negative event and search for the hidden opportunity. You can remind yourself that most successful people found success out of problems and struggles. Maybe this moment is

YOUR BIG OPPORTUNITY?

When things don’t go to plan today, remember this and immediately hunt for that opportunity.

Make Today A Confidence Boosting Day

“If you have no confidence in self, you are twice defeated in the race of life. With confidence, you have won before you have started.” — Marcus Tullius Cicero

Confidence is such an important component to personal success and happiness. It is also extremely volatile and unless we know how to summon our confidence, we can become shy, timid and inactive.Even the most confident people in the world like pro athletes can have their confidence shattered in a single moment. Their entire performance falls apart when this happens.

There is no magic pill that you can take to suddenly become confident but you can certainly make a habit of practicing your confidence.Use today as a “confidence boosting day”. Write down everything you are good at. Think about all of the wins you have experienced in your life. Big or small it doesn’t matter. Feed your mind with “confidence fuel”.

Convince yourself that you are DAMN good and experience the true feelings of confidence as it permeates through you. Now, imagine if you made this a daily practice. Your confidence would surpass anything you have experienced before. Make today your “confidence” day!
