The Greatest Risk

31 Jan

We can do anything we set our minds to.  We can achieve any goal, go anywhere, and accomplish anything we desire.  The whole world and all its options are always available to us but nothing will come without action.  They say the greatest risk of all is inaction, and that’s true in every arena of our lives.  It’s unlikely that anything we truly desire will come to us without effort.  Our lives are in our control and every choice we make takes us somewhere.  If we choose to sit on the sidelines or ride along with everyone else and put no effort into our direction, our lives will roll out on their own and we may end up somewhere we never wanted to go.  It’s like getting on a bus not knowing the destination and simply arriving wherever it takes us.  Of course, if we haven’t decided where we want to go, one bus is as good as another.  But our lives are the greatest blessing we possess.  Doing nothing to make them the way we truly want them will never bring us happiness.  Although it’s easier to let others make decisions about where we go and what we do, living authentically and in control of our destinations will bring us great satisfaction and joy.  It isn’t always easy to forge ahead our own way, and there may be others who disagree with our choices, but we are in charge of our lives and may live them any way we choose.  Taking control, taking action, and moving forward with purpose will take us where we want to go and help us fulfill all our dreams.

Before we begin any journey we must decide where we want to end up.  It’s pointless to travel around going here and there and having no destination in mind.  Being busy doesn’t always equate to being productive.  If we flit from one idea to the next, and constantly change our focus, chances are we’ll spend our time actively engaged in going nowhere.  It’s easy to get caught up in a world filled with distractions and if we aren’t careful we may find a lot of time has gone by and we’ve accomplished little.  We can decide what we want, where we want to go, and then move forward.  We are in control of our decisions and can accomplish anything we desire.

Change is the only constant in life and sometimes on the road to a destination we may face insurmountable obstacles.  Sometimes even if we know where we want to go the road ahead is blocked and we can’t move forward.  We can decide to stop and wait until things improve and our situation changes.  Deciding to wait is not inaction.  It’s choosing to revise our plan going forward.  But no wait is permanent and when things change if we still want to get to the goal, we must begin again.  We can have any kind of life we want.  We need only choose the road and start walking.

Today if you’ve been thinking about something you want to accomplish but have done nothing to move toward it, make a plan and begin.  You can do anything.  You can go anywhere.  Decide what you want the most, and start forward on the road that will take you there.  There is nothing out of reach and you can make all your dreams come true.  Start walking.  Success is just ahead.
