Why risk? Why put yourself out there? Why take a chance and show your hand? Why risk the chance of being hurt? Well if you don’t take a risk once in a while, you cannot take a step towards what you are meant to do. The FEAR of not taking a risk is a prison, and it traps us, causes us to grow stale, and stifles the creativity inside of us from coming out.
Some risks are not bright… Some risks really aren’t a risk at all. But some of the risks we take, launches us into a vast world of pouring out a gift or ability to everyone around us. When I took a risk a number of years ago, placing my photos on the internet for anyone to look and comment on, it launched me into taking more and more risks, it allowed me to open more and more of MYSELF.
The reason we DO NOT take a risk is the real issue however. “Why risk? I just get burned.” Don’t let fear dictate your life! Fear will block you from ever taking a risk, you will only want to take safe steps, figuring it will keep you alive, but in reality, safe is death… Why risk the chance to miss something great? You see fear is also a risk, you are risking your future just to remain comfortable!
