Risk Assessment


In order to truly thrive, would you venture into the unknown… unsure of how the journey would turn out… knowing that you had to dive into uncertainty to find what you were truly looking for?

Well, let me be more specific – for your dream… for your passion – what kind of risk would you take?

I read stories all the time, as I am sure we all do, about people who had a calling and went for it.  For many of these individuals “going for it” entailed abandoning their education… their job… their comfort zones.

Do we have to take risks to be successful?

What makes ordinary people extraordinary?  Is it the refusal to let anything get in the way of immersing themselves in what nourishes their soul?

I just needed to get these thoughts out.  See, I have a confession to make… I am a big dreamer, and I am doing so much more to let my energy lead me to where I am fulfilled.  But, I still have trouble not playing it safe.

Does this mean I will never truly be fulfilled?

Is it just not the right time to take a plunge?

Did simply writing this help? Yes. :)
