I’m a risk-taker. My attitude is, go after what you want. If you get it, fine, if not, move on.

The journey to your true self is a life filled with risk.
You must risk if you want to live a life that you would be proud to call your own.
Remember, fear thrives on safety. Love thrives on risk.

Surviving and living your life successfully requires courage.
The goals and dreams you are seeking require courage and risk-taking.
Learn from the turtle; it only makes progress when it sticks its neck out.

This is the week, my friend!
You know that risky task you have parked on your to-do list? It might be a small step you have been considering: asking for a raise or a date or a favor. Or perhaps a huge proposition is on your horizon: going back to school, starting a family or maybe purchasing a new home. The bad news: taking the risk may not produce the results you expected. The good news: regardless of the outcome, you may find the process to be adventurous and it could open some new unexpected opportunities. YES you need to take precautions, consider the possible challenges, plan for all the potential outcomes….and then at some point you need to GO FOR IT!
