So many people tiptoe through life, so carefully, to arrive, safely, at death.” - Jermaine Evans

You’ve asked these questions many times in your lifetime.

Why didn’t I take that job?

Why didn’t I move there?

Why was I afraid to take that promotion?

Why did I not change careers when I had the opportunity to do it?

Why didn’t I go back to school?




The questions are endless.

We didn’t do any of these things in our life because of fear.

Sure, we’ll rationalize that we didn’t have the money; the timing wasn’t good and all kinds of other common sense rationalizations.

Stop this nonsense!

Rationalization is rationing lies to our conscious mind.

These are lies and not truths about you, your goals, and aspirations.

Make a conscious effort immediately to eradicate this type of thinking, as it does not serve you.

It does not get you any closer to your goal.

It simply reinforces this four-letter word that we call fear.

The symphony of incredible music that lies dormant within your very being needs to be expressed.

Don’t arrive safely at the end of your journey with the music still inside of you.

Life is full of twists and turns.

If you’re constantly walking on eggshells and not willing to risk, life becomes mundane.

Muhammad Ali stated, “He who is not courageous enough not to take risks will accomplish nothing in life.”

Risk is the realization that you can be, do, or have more in your life.

This risk allows you to investigate and explore all possible options that allow you to grow as a valuable, nurturing and contributing individual.

Risk allows you to understand that success is a two-sided coin that has failure on the other side.

You cannot have one without the other.

When you risk, you open all types of possible opportunities that would be sadly missed.

Playing it safe?
