ON RISK AND SETBACKS

"Although we may have our hands firmly on the wishbone, there is an even chance that in taking any risk we'll encounter setbacks, which most people refer to as failures. Yet if we see life as an experiment in which there are no failures only results, our interpretation of those results will determine how successful we are." - Gregg Levoy

======================================

Living requires risk. Whether it is going back to school, asking for a promotion, or venturing in a new direction, there may be problems. Even if you fail, you'll know you tried. If you never try you'll be faced with "what if" or "if only" thinking, maybe for the rest of your life.

If you seldom take a risk, ask yourself why. What is the fear? What is the worst that could happen? Don't make excuses and defeat yourself before you start. Windows of opportunity don't stay open forever.

What small risk would help you move forward in your life or career? When will you do it?

The first step is always the most difficult. Make the phone call, write the letter, buy the book, have the conversation and make a commitment. Take the necessary risk for your future.

Excerpted from the Bounce Back Quotient

======================================

Test how risk adverse you are, how well you handle setbacks and challenges, and learn how to increase your ability to lead a happy, fulfilling and successful life. Get the Bounce Back Quotient ($12.95 plus shipping)

A review in "The Bookwatch" says, " with its helpful insights, warnings, and candid advice, the Bounce Back Quotient is a 'must' for anyone who truly believes in preparing themselves for the unexpected!"

======================================

Keep moving. Don't be like Tweedledum in Lewis Carroll's Through the Looking Glass who said,

"I'm very brave generally, only today I happen to have a headache."
