What is a lifetime of living your dreams worth to you?

May 21, 2003.

"Who dares nothing, need hope for nothing."
Johann Friedrich Von Schiller

Why do some people seem to possess that magic touch, where they consistently come out on top on just about everything they do? While others around them struggle to scrape by, it sometimes seems like everything these high flying over achievers touch turns to gold. What exactly gives them their winning edge?

In a nutshell, these winners live life on the edge. Now don’t get me wrong here, I’m not suggesting that these power performers take unnecessary risks. Not at all. But these winners win because they are willing to take necessary risks. Because they fervently that life is too short and far too precious to fritter away by playing it safe, they choose to live it as close to the edge as possible. And so should you.

"You can't cross the sea merely by standing and staring at the water."
Rabindranath Tagore

Making the most of your time on earth requires that you maximize your God given talents. That means taking it right to the edge — right to the outer limits of your present capabilities — and then taking it a little bit farther. That means getting out on the cutting edge, showing a willingness to try fresh approaches and test new ideas. And it definitely means assuming the leading edge, stretching yourself as far you can — and then forcing yourself to stretch a little more.

Stephen Covey said that "the greatest risk is the risk of riskless living." While taking chances can certainly be risky and a little unnerving at times, it’s not nearly as risky as sitting on the sidelines unwilling to put your best to the test.

"Why not go out on a limb? Isn't that where the fruit is?"
Frank Scully

Have you been living life at full throttle, taking it right to the edge each and every day? And are you presently enjoying the very best life has to offer — or could your daily routine use a hefty dose of excitement and adventure?

Instead of holding back and playing it safe, why not climb out on that limb and get as close to the edge as possible? Come on, if you never take yourself right to the edge, repeatedly testing the limits of your capabilities, how will you ever know for sure how good your life can get? You won’t — and that’s a risk you simply cannot take.

"I don't want to come to the end of my life and find that I have just lived the length of it. I want to have lived the width of it as well."
Diane Ackerman

Grace Hansen said, "Don't be afraid your life will end; be afraid that it will never begin." Wouldn’t you hate to find out, when it’s all said and done, that you were oh so close to realizing your dreams but didn’t have the courage to take those last fateful steps — right out to the edge?

How would it feel to know that everything you ever wished for was right there for the taking — right at the edge — but you just couldn’t push yourself beyond your own self imposed limitations?

"Wherever there is danger, there lurks opportunity; whenever there is opportunity, there lurks danger. The two are inseparable. They go together."
Earl Nightingale

Let's face the music here, life isn’t some sort of walk-through or practice session. Not by a long shot. Life is a game that you play at full speed; with nothing held back, nothing left behind.

Why not choose to live a life so exciting, so memorable, so absolutely exhilarating that it keeps you penned right on the edge of your seat every single day?

"Come to the edge."
"We can't. We're afraid."
"Come to the edge."
"We can't. We will fall!"
"Come to the edge."
And they came.
And he pushed them.
And they flew.
Guillaume Apollinaire

The Bottom Line: Come on out to the edge. When you do, you’re going to discover that the view is terrific.
