I haven’t included a quote in my posts in a long time but this one came to mind recently. Far too often we strive to be comfortable rather than inspired, passionate, determined or driven. We settle for what is easy rather than pushing ourselves for what we know that we deserve.
“Life is inherently risky. There is only one big risk that you should avoid at all costs, and that is the risk of doing nothing”. Denis Waitley
It takes work to create a great life, but not so much to eeek out a living and just get through the day. Yet we all want the nice house, the fancy car and the nice vacations every year. Putting it on credit cards seems easy while saving up the money requires much more work. One has a lot more work at the beginning while the other has all the consequences at the end.
It takes risk to start a business. It is risky to get a trade or a university degree. It’s risky to work on commission in sales. It’s risky to push yourself physically. It could also be risky to invest in real estate. However it is risker still to work for someone else making less than the standard of living. It is riskier to watch several hours of tv a night rather than reading or working on improving your self.
You either pay for it by risking it all in the short term to get long term benefits or you do next to nothing in the short term to have pay for it in the end by having no heath or finances to enjoy your life. Nobody gets out of this alive, so decide where you want to have the risk in life.
“Never let the fear of striking out get in your way” Babe Ruth
