I read a bit of a pretty good book today while in a local bookstore.
From Take the Risk by Ben Carson, M.D.:
No risk, pay the cost. Know risk, reap the rewards.
In our risk-avoidance culture, we place a high premium on safety. We insure our vacations. We check crash tests on cars. We extend the warranties on our appliances. But by insulating ourselves from the unknown—the risks of life—we miss the great adventure of living our lives to their full potential.
By avoiding risk, are you also avoiding the full potential of your life?
Is ducking risk the most productive way for us to live?
Surgeon and author Dr. Ben Carson, who faces risk on a daily basis, offers an inspiring message on how accepting risk can lead us to a higher purpose.
