Is What You're Willing To Risk on Your Dream Equal to Your Desired Reward?

What are you willing to risk for your dream? A little time? A little effort? Maybe 5 or 10 minutes a day? A few thoughts here and there about how you might get started sometime soon? Maybe a conversation with a friend about how you’re thinking about going for it one day?

I have a question for you that might hit kind of hard, depending on your expectations. Is what you’re willing to risk for your dreams equivalent to the reward you expect to get from them?

If you’ve never thought about that, it’s something you should seriously consider. If you are not willing to take big risks, you can’t expect big rewards.

I’m not much of a gambler in the literal sense. I occasionally buy a lotto ticket, but I’m not much fun in a Casino. I’ll sit on a penny machine, bored out of my mind for all of five minutes, because I’m not willing to risk much money hoping to win. 

In those instances, I don’t expect to win so I don’t risk...

When You Think You Aren't Going to Make It, Take One More Step

 Have you ever felt like your life was as bad as it could possibly be? Like nothing was going the way you wanted it to go and there’s no way you could ever recover from the blows life was dealing you?

One Bold Action Per Day Finale


Today is a day of celebration for me. It’s almost hard to believe that, exactly 66 days ago, I decided that I would face down my fears and do the things that horrified me to do but that I knew would help me as an entrepreneur. 

Almost 10 weeks ago, I decided that I would challenge myself to take one bold action per day for 66 days. To qualify as a bold action, it had to be something that I was uncomfortable doing, moved me closer to my goals, and defied an irrational fear that I’ve allowed to hold me back in the past.

So I decided to start a podcast. My plan was to record an episode of the podcast every day for 66 days, with the hope that maybe I could get over my fear of putting myself out there, front and center, as the face of my business. In addition to hosting my podcast, I wanted to push myself even further by sharing my message on Instagram and Facebook. I chose 66 days after researching how habits are formed.
