Do You Want Certainty or Adventure?

                                            "Uncertainty is the only certainty there is,
                         and knowing how to live with insecurity is the only security"
                                                         - John Allen Paulos

                               "The quest for certainty blocks the search for meaning.
                    Uncertainty is the very condition to impel man to unfold his powers"
                                                            - Erin Fromm

Are you afraid of taking risks?

Do you rather sit on the sidelines of life instead of actually being out on the field playing?

Do you always want to feel safe and secure.....not trying anything new?

Are you too cautious when it comes to trying new things because the risk is driving you crazy?

I have news for you.........Everything in life is risky!!!!

Starting a new business is risky. Getting married is risky. Having children is risky. Moving to another city or country is risky. Investing your money is risky. It is all risky.

If you think trying is risky.......wait until you get the bill for NOT trying. Now that is scary!!!!

Life is risky and you won´t get out alive.

Give life a go.  Don´t build walls around you to protect you from life because you want to feel safe and secure. You might live to be 100, but what a life to live.
The same walls that will keep you safe and secure will also prevent happiness from coming in.

Let life touch you. Take down the walls, get off the sidelines and into the field.

Better to live 40 years filled with adventure than 100 years safe and secure, only watching life from the sidelines. Not really participating in what life has to offer.

It is not important how long you live. What is important is ......HOW YOU LIVE!

So...Lets give it a go!
