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

July 17, 2003.

“If you want to achieve a high goal, you're going to have to take some chances.”
Alberto Salazar

We all know how unsettling taking a chance can be on occasion. To step outside our ‘comfy’ zone and try something different can send an unnerving wave of apprehension throughout the entire length of our body, chilling us right down to the bone.

The unsettling possibility of making a mistake or even worse, making a fool of ourselves, prevents many of us from giving life our very best shot. We often try to avoid risk by refusing to take any kind of chance whatsoever. Unknowingly, we are taking the biggest chance of all.

“Do you want to be safe and good, or do you want to take a chance and be great?”
Jimmy Johnson

Hey, there’s nothing wrong or unusual about feeling a bit uneasy or even intimidated at the prospect of trying something different. As a matter of fact, it’s a natural reaction. It’s something new, something worlds apart from what we are used to doing. And doing something different from the norm can be a bit spooky at times.

The one and only way to get over this fear factor is to just do whatever it is that needs to be done. And do it right away! Will you make a load of mistakes when you attempt something new? You better believe you will; but then again, so what? Chances are good that you’re going to make mistakes anyhow, so why not make them while chasing your dreams?

“If you don't design your own life plan, chances are you'll fall into someone else's plan. And guess what they have planned for you? Not much.”
Jim Rohn

Once you decide to give your new venture a whirl, throwing caution to the wind; there’s a better than average chance that you will fall short initially. But then again, there’s also a chance that you’ll discover a pot of gold at the end of your rainbow if you’ll just stick with the program. A chance worth taking? That's your call.

When you boldly step out of your shell and start making something happen, there’s a chance that you will encounter more difficulty and adversity than you’ve ever known. But there’s also a better than average chance that you will start living the life you’ve always dreamed about as well.

“If you have a dream, give it a chance to happen.”
Richard M. DeVos

Should you give up on your dreams because you might stub your toe along the way? Of course not! Hey, nobody ever said that life would always be a walk in the park. In fact, life can be a RISKY BUSINESS now and again. But time after time again richly rewards the courageous souls who are willing to roll the dice and take a CHANCE.

Sure, there’s a risk if you decide to lay it all on the line every day of your life — but there’s also just as big (if not bigger) risk if you elect to do nothing at all. The only way you’re ever going to make your dreams come true is to take a chance… on yourself.

The Bottom Line: Your chance of a lifetime awaits today.
