Taking Risk


Hey team, all right. So here we are again, another Wednesday Workshop. I’m excited to be with you.

I was reading earlier this week Helen Keller. She wrote this and it’s pretty cool. I liked it anyway. “Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature, nor did the children of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. Life is either a daring adventure or nothing.” Again, that was written by Helen Keller.

Another gentleman wrote, his name is G.K. Chesterton, if I remember correctly. He wrote, “I do not believe in fate that falls on men however they act. But I do believe in fate that falls on them unless they act.” Both of these people wrote about how life happens to us. Life happens regardless of what’s going on in your life, it’s always happening to you.

Trying to avoid risk, trying to avoid danger, trying to do those things, many times you end up not living at all. Whereas if you find yourself sometimes taking risks, stepping out doing stuff like that then you will find yourself, many oftentimes you’ll find yourself failing. But you fail forward, and you keep stepping up, and you will find yourself sooner or later succeeding. There is no success in not trying at all. We talk about that from time to time.

So, what in your life right now, have you not taken a risk? What are you not stepping out to do?

As we come into Christmas and the New Year, we get ready for another leadership class; this one’s about to end. We’ll be moving forward next year with another leadership class.

Maybe you should dare to risk and join that leadership class. To move upward and onward with your life. To grow for yourself, for your family. What are you doing? Or what are you not doing? Because not doing stuff, not living is really no life to live.

So, on this beautiful workshop Wednesday, I just thought I would share a little bit of information and some stuff that’s been speaking into my own life here recently.

 All right, God bless you guys.

Remember, be valuable nothing less will do.

See you next week.
