It’s Scary to Take a Risk
Total rewards are only found when we take a risk. Last year I took a risk . . . many times. Not all of them paid off. In fact, I have a positive affirmation above my desk that says ‘I am a success in all that I do’ and my 9 year old son stopped by my office one and day and said, “Mom that’s a lie; I’ve seen you make mistakes and fail.” Oh, out of the mouth’s of babes! Leave it to your children to keep you reigned in!
But he’s right . . . I took the risk – again and again over the last year – success occurred and lack of success occurred. (personally, I refuse to use the ‘fail’ word – no such thing – lack of success were was just learning steps)
As I look back at the year though, every risk was worth it for the total rewards I’m experiencing right now. I’m so grateful!
It’s Time for YES
Those total rewards started with the risk when I said yes.
