Risking It - February 10, 2010

"No great art has ever been made without the artist having known danger." - Rainer Maria Rilke

Today is a call for us to live beyond our comforts, to take risks, and begin moving in the direction of our dreams...

There is almost nothing in this world worth having that is gained without taking a risk or leap of faith-- whether it involves career advancement, moving to a new home, love or respecting our boundaries.

We fear loss, failure, heartache, humiliation, and more when we consider making major changes. It's natural for us to feel this way because we are creatures of habit who crave stability -- sometimes even when "stability" comes with loss of self and dreams.

The beauty of today -- of this moment -- is that we can make the decision to create change. To re-focus. To take risks!! All too often we sit on the sidelines and watch others start businesses, run in marathons or triathlons, improve their relationships and see the world. And we get frustrated because we wonder when our time will come.

The time has come!! No one is going to come and do it for you or me. We must structure our lives to make it happen. It all starts now!

Go make today your masterpiece...
