The Greatest Risk in life is to risk nothing
To laugh is to risk appearing the fool
To weep is to risk appearing sentimental
To reach out to others is to risk getting involved
To show your feelings is to risk exposing yourself
To place your ideas and dreams before the crowd
is to risk their loss
To love is to risk not being loved in return
To hope is to risk pain
To try is to risk failure
But risk must be taken, it absolutely must be taken.
Because the greatest hazard in life is to risk nothing.
The person who risks nothing does nothing, learns nothing,
develops nothing and gains nothing.
They may avoid suffering and sorrow, but they simply cannot
learn, feel, change, grow, live or love.
Chained by their certitudes and inertia, they are slaves,
and have forfeited their freedom.
ONLY THE PERSON WHO RISKS IS FREE
Running your own business, working for yourself, stepping out of the comfort of a secure job…. all of these things take courage. We can stay stuck in our comfortable lives and never move beyond them. Or, we can risk giving things a go and getting out there amongst people. We can try to achieve our heart’s desires. We can take a risk.
What harm can really come to us when we do these things? Nothing really. Like the verses above say, the greatest risk of all is to risk nothing. Do you really want that for yourself? Do you really want to set that example for your kids? Someone who couldn’t move forward because they were too scared to take the risk? Be brave and step out. Find courage and do the thing that scares you most. Only then will you grow from having done so.

Most people are familiar with the physical self and the intellect, and they work on developing those aspects of who they are. Some work at developing their spiritual self or their intuition and psychic self, but very few people tackle their emotional self because it is sometimes too difficult or confronting for them to deal with.

Now that you have learned what to do and how to do it, let us look at some of the fundamentals of being self-employed. Obviously you are choosing to do this because either your situation has forced you to look at self-employment as an option or you are genuinely ready to step out of working for other people and into working for yourself. Should you choose to continue along this path you will need to develop what I call ‘The Mindset of a Businessperson’. It will require you to regularly set goals and put the action steps into place in order to achieve those goals, it will require you to become responsible, and it will require you to be fully accepting of yourself and all your limitations. So we will start with setting goals. Continue reading →
