You have been very cautious about whether or not you should take risks. You continue to question if it is right or wrong and at times ask yourself if the risk is worth the potential reward; considering there is a reward. Please understand that the system of Risks and Rewards is alive and well. You cannot reasonably expect to claim the inevitable rewards if you don’t bother taking risks. Understand that I do not mean taking unnecessary risks; I encourage you to take calculated risks that have the potential to yield positive results.
Take a second to imagine that you are standing at the edge of a cliff and you can’t see the bottom. There is either a bed of pillows at the bottom of the cliff or a bed of thorns; you will not know what is down there until you jump. Some people would stop there and not jump thinking that surely the bed of thorns is a more fitting end to their story. Winners understand the importance of taking risks so they would most likely choose to jump and find out.
I for one would jump without even thinking about it just to see where I land. I am almost certain I would land on the pillows; a bit optimistic I guess. Perhaps it is due to my deep understanding of the importance of taking chances. I encourage you to start taking risks. Helen Keller once said “Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure.” This message should be very clear to you. You know what you have to do, now do it.
Take that chance, make that move, and believe in the path that has already been charted for you.
