Over and over again you will find yourself at a crossroad in life. This is a time where you have to make a decision perhaps an easy one and perhaps not. It's often at these times we make the wrong decision out of fear. There can be other factors involved too but more often than not it's fear or anxiety.
A good rule of thumb is to travel down each turn in your mind and determine are you running down that road away from something or are you running toward something you really want? Decisions based on fear almost always leave you with nothing to gain. To gain in life we must risk. All of life is about risk and gain. We plant seeds risking to lose it all in order to gain a crop. We work all week risking to give away our hard work on the promise of a paycheck. We get preganant and carry a child within us for nine months in the hopes of having a healthy child. It's a risk but life is all about risks.Even eating a meal holds risks. The food could make us sick, we could choke. In fact, I can't think of one single thing in life that doesn't hold a risk or a gain.
So next time you find yourself at a crossroads perhaps you will realize its all about risk not safety. Those who play it safe lose the largest in our world. To make any kind of a difference in this world you have to be willing to take the risks. Are you?
