“If you don’t risk anything, you risk even more.” Erica Jong
If I had to pick one drum that I beat more than any other drum with my clients, my family, and my friends, it’s the please-take-a-risk drum. I don’t preach risk-taking as I sit safely tucked away in my ivory tower. I absolutely walk the walk and talk the talk by taking risks of my own.
As you know by now, I recently hosted 2 classes on difficult conversation. I posted it on all social media platforms as well as through email. I took an even bigger risk deciding to host a 2nd class because my first class was at an inconvenient time for Europe. It was a lot of work, but I am passionate about the topic, and I felt strongly that it was a class I could add value with by hosting. With complete trepidation, I forged ahead, and it was a success. Perfect? No. Success? Yes.
If you don’t risk anything, you risk even more. Playing it safe isn’t safe at all. And as Casey Neistat once said, “The most dangerous thing in life you can do is play it safe.” So today let’s take a look at our lives. Can we take a risk? What if it actually turned out to be a good thing? What then? I have feared a lot of things in my life that never came to fruition. Let’s chew on that for a while.
Let’s GO! WE GOT THIS!
