“Man is a mixture of desires that extend beyond his knowledge and often result in action conflicting with rationality.” – Charles A. Lindbergh
Stepping out beyond rational thinking is a risk that many of us hesitate to take. Risk implies moving outside the comfortable envelope of safety and herd mentality. Growth in spiritual, business and personal measures is necessarily accomplished out beyond the edge of assured security.
“A ship in the harbor is safe…but that is not what ships are built for.” – Rear Admiral Grace Murray Hopper
I have just finished a wonderful book, Manifesting Michelangelo, written by Joseph Pierce Farrell. The author quotes William Feather in saying “…conditions are never just right. People who delay action until all factors are favorable are the kind who do nothing.” Of course some folks have a deeper faculty for risk and adventure than others however I would take the risk to say that all of us can benefit from pushing the envelope of comfort. This may require a re-definition of our personal concepts of failure and success. Possibly even going so far as removing the label of failure from the equation.
“Every failure brings with it the seed of an equivalent success.” Napoleon Hill
Therefore if failure is more a necessary ingredient for life growth and not in reality the negative that our fear-mind interprets…it might be to our advantage to pursue risk, and the possibly result of failure, as a friend rather than a foe. Make a decision today to step through the veil of safety and security and risk failure. The reward of growth in retrospect I have always found to have been worth the temporary discomfort.
IN-JOY your “risky” path today!
