If you are letting fear of missing the goal keep you from taking chances that could change your life forever, then you are missing out on WAY too much.
See, you weren’t born to live your life just drifting along. You were born for greatness…and you know it.
You can feel it down deep in your bones…so why are you holding back?
I’m sharing this poem with you so you can have a taste of success that only comes from stepping out on a limb.
To laugh is to risk appearing the fool.
To weep is to risk appearing sentimental.
To reach out to others is to risk involvement.
To expose feelings is to risk exposing your true self.
To place your ideas, your dreams, before a crowd is to risk their loss.
To love is to risk notbeing loved in return.
To live is to risk dying.
To hope is to risk despair.
To try is to risk failure.
But risks must be taken,
because the greatest hazard in life is to do nothing.
The person who risks nothing,
does nothing, has nothing, and is nothing.
They may avoid suffering and sorrow,
but they cannot learn, feel, change, grow, love, live.
Chained by their attitudes,
they are a slave, they forfeited their freedom.
Only the person who risks can be free.
