                    RISK
To laugh is to risk appearing a fool,
To weep is to risk appearing sentimental,
To reach out to another is to risk involvement,
To expose feelings is to risk exposing your true self,
To place your ideas and dreams before a crowd is to risk their loss,
To love is to risk not being loved in return,
To hope is to risk despair,
To try is to risk failure.

But risks must be taken because the greatest hazard in life is to risk nothing.
The person who risks nothing does nothing, has nothing, is nothing.
He may avoid suffering and sorrow,
But he cannot learn, feel, change, grow or live.
Chained by his servitude he is a slave who has forfeited all freedom.
Only a person who risks is free.
                                                                —William Arthur Ward


Failing Forward

Failure_Doesnt_Mean

Enjoy!

Failure doesn’t mean you’re a failure, it does mean you haven’t succeeded yet.
Failure doesn’t mean you haven’t accomplished something, it does mean you have learned something.
Failure doesn’t mean you’ve been a fool, it does mean you have a lot of faith.
Failure doesn’t mean you’ve been disgraced, it does mean you were willing to try.
Failure doesn’t mean you don’t have it, it does mean you have to do something in a different way.
Failure doesn’t mean you’re inferior, it does mean you’re not perfect.
Failure doesn’t mean you’ve wasted your time, it does mean you have a reason to start fresh.
Failure doesn’t mean you should give up, it does mean you should try harder.
Failure doesn’t mean you’ll never make it, it does mean it will take a little longer.
Failure doesn’t mean God has abandoned you, it does mean he has a better way.

To place your ideas and dreams before a crowd is to risk their loss,
