"Why not go out on a limb? Isn't that where the fruit is?"
Going out on a limb can be a risky proposition. After all, the limb may break and send you tumbling to the ground. Or you might lose your grip and take a big spill.
Anytime and anywhere you take a chance and go out on a limb, there is always the possibility of falling flat on your face. Yet the only way you can ever enjoy the fruits of your labor is to have the courage to climb out on that limb and keep climbing every day of your life.
"The greatest risk is the risk of riskless living."
Far too many of us are far too afraid of failing or falling, terrified to the bone that we may make a mistake or encounter a setback in life. So instead of ascending the tree and daring to boldly reach for the best life offers us all, many of us elect to remain on the ground, hanging out with the rest of the risk adverse contingent.
While staying close to the ground, as we play life close to the vest, may keep us from falling from the tree; it certainly wont prevent us from falling down. As a matter of fact, its just as easy to get tripped up by all of the clutter strewn about by all of the non-achievers remaining on the ground maybe even easier.
"Who dares nothing, need hope for nothing."
Johann Friedrich Von Schiller
We all dream of a life where we can grab that brass ring for ourselves; a life where our fondest wishes can come true. But in order to turn these dreams into reality, we must be willing to take a chance and to climb out on that limb.
The greatest risk we can ever take is to always play it safe, always seeking to avoid the possibility of risk altogether. The truth be told, you can never eliminate any and all risks from life. Life is about living and living is about taking risks. So if youre going to have take risks each and every day, why not at least determine those risks for yourself?
"Don't be afraid your life will end; be afraid that it will never begin."
When it comes to taking chances, why not bet on a sure thing by betting on yourself and your God given talents and gifts? You need to listen to that inner winner that wants to climb out on that limb; that desperately longs to reach for the sweet fruit life has to offer.
Are you going to fall from the tree on occasion? Of course you will; but then again, so what? You can just as easily get trampled while standing on the ground, couldnt you?
Falling is no big deal as long as you pick yourself up and start climbing once again. Why go out on that limb, climbing up above the rest of the crowd by reaching for the best in life? As long as you have the courage to climb and then keep climbing, its a sure fire bet youre going to reach your ultimate destination the TOP.
The Bottom Line: When you have the courage to go out on a limb everyday, youll get everything youve ever dreamed of having and more.
