Into Deep Water

Sunday, April 3rd, 2016

Jumping into deep water when you’re fairly uncertain is not the best course of action to take but…

if you’re in the wading pool too long you run the risk of never getting out.

Head for the area where you can look over your shoulder and see the wading pool but not so far away that you’re unprepared and leave yourself open to drowning in the deepest part.

As you gain momentum and experience you will be able to navigate through to deeper water.

The Moment

Friday, January 23rd, 2015

The moment you realize you’ve had it and you are done

with things the way they are

you’ll know what you need to do to make things better.

You’ll need to risk and perhaps

even take a bold action.

Once you stand up to the thing you

fear and look it in the eye

you will breathe a sigh of relief

because you’ve made it to a pivotal moment

and at that point you will feel strength and

calm and belief that you are on your way.

Extraordinary Results

Sunday, October 12th, 2014

Extraordinary results require taking extraordinary actions.

You get something out of what you put into anything you do.

There is always a risk that the action you take will result

in the loss of something.

The loss, whatever it is, will not overshadow the

gain you will receive by being brave enough to face possible loss.

Keep Your Doubt to Yourself

Sunday, July 8th, 2012

Do you doubt yourself? You’re better than you think and know more than you give yourself credit for. Most of us think we are missing information that will give us the edge. What we’re really missing is belief that what we know is enough. We give ourselves an advantage by staying focused on our own goals.

When we look away and stare at what someone else is doing we begin to doubt ourselves. When focus is needed doubt is the enemy. We may question what we’re doing and may become discouraged but don’t market your doubt for others to see and hear.

Risking–Is What You Want Worth It?

Monday, March 26th, 2012

I was visiting with a friend yesterday.

She is in the middle of some life transitions and asked me for some advice.

She feels like I’ve been through a few of my own so decided to run some ideas by me. She’s the first to admit that she’s risk averse so change is never going to be taken lightly by her especially when risk is involved.

I let her know I thought it was a little surprising she would ask for my advice because I do take risks.

But I also let her know that risk doesn’t come easy for me. In fact taking risks scares me a lot! I consider myself a scaredy cat when it comes to risk taking but usually go ahead and do whatever it is anyway. I don’t throw caution to the wind and just go for it–I do my research but in the end I usually feel I’m best off if I go forward with my plan.

There is never 100% assurance that taking the plunge will be right but as opportunities open up I think it’s up to each of us to evaluate the ones put before us and take a chance with those that seem promising.

However there is a catch.

If we take a risk we’ve got to be prepared for a negative or positive outcome. There are no guarantees.

So by the end of our visit she seemed to feel pretty good about her plan. She has to save some money to make it happen but within six months feels she’ll be able to take the next step.

How do  you feel about risk?

Is what you want worth the risk?

 

 

 

Risk

Wednesday, January 4th, 2012

To love is to risk not being loved in return. To hope is to risk pain. To try is to risk failure, but risk must be taken because the greatest hazard in life is to risk nothing.          Unknown

Reduce Your Risk of Stroke

Saturday, November 12th, 2011

Up to 80 percent of strokes can be prevented by maintaining a healthy weigh, exercising, and not smoking according to the National Stroke Association.

Diabetes, high cholesterol, high blood pressure, and certain heart rhythm problems can increase your risk for stroke. Check with your doctor to find out if you have any of these conditions and, if so, how to control them.
