It Is Often Necessary To Take Risks If You Want Rewards.
Thinking outside the box increases the risk of failure along the way toward achieving our goals. You cannot fear failure if you want to succeed. History is full of those who did not fear failure.
Thinking outside the box is essential if you wan things to change.
By not being afraid of failure, Edison was able to create his light bulb and essentially change the world.
The same concept holds true in your life. If it makes you feel more comfortable, you can remain inside the box and think along conventional lines. However, if you are willing to think along unconventional lines, and are not afraid of possible failures along the way, you increase the likelihood that you will achieve more.
Many of us have thought of a unique idea or invention, and then months or years later witnessed it appear on the market. What one person can imagine, another can (and will) make real. Consider becoming the person who makes it real. You may fail along the way, but that’s the risk you must take if you seek to achieve more.
My next post asks the all-important question “who are you?”
As you meditate upon this thought, ask yourself the following questions:
- What fears do you have that might stand in the way of your success?
- What can you do to overcome these fears?
- How might you benefit if you overcame these fears?
Until next time, may you find your path by walking it . . .
