The Single Woman’s Dash of Sass: June 3, 2011
Quote of the Day:
“The person who risks nothing does nothing, has nothing, is nothing, and becomes nothing. He may avoid suffering and sorrow, but he simply cannot learn, feel, change, grow or love. Chained by his certitude, he is a slave; he has forfeited his freedom. Only the person who risks is truly free.” ~Leo Buscaglia
The Single Woman Says:
Sometimes we are SO afraid of failure, we rob ourselves of success by hesitating at the crossroads of decision instead of believing in ourselves enough to step out on faith and take a chance on the unknown. That’s the thing about really tough decisions – you either make them, or they make you. You either leap and wait for the net to appear or get caught in the net of your own fear. You will never achieve true success until you are willing to risk being a failure. Every truly great person, success story, or invention has become great because SOMEONE, somewhere along the way, was willing to take a risk.
What happens on the other side of taking a risk? I don’t know. But I DO know what happens on the other side of NOT taking a risk – absolutely nothing.
So go ahead. Take a chance. Kiss the boy. Apply for the job. Shoot for the stars. Go out on a limb. Show up big. LEAP! I dare you. J
