Take Risks

What is the one word which best describes someone who doesn’t take any risks?  A lot come to mind, but to me the first word is “victim”. Show me someone who never takes a risk, and I’ll show you someone whose life is always predictable.  Their best days are the days when nothing goes really wrong, so life can continue being relatively uneventful. That’s not a recipe to choose your life, that’s a recipe to wake up 10 years from now saying “how in the world did I get here?”

Life without risks is about avoidance and freedom, not about choices.  Declare today that you will always take risks.  Maybe some of them will fail, maybe all of them will fail, but what if that was ok?   It’s still better than having your entire life given to you without choosing it.
