And the day came when the risk it took to remain tight in the bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom. ~ Anaïs Nin 

When you take a leap in faith to follow your heart, you do so knowing that there is no guarantee that you will succeed.

Often, when you finally do pursue your dream, it’s because it has become too unbearable for you to remain docile in a particular situation or way of being. For whatever reason, you resolve that change is needed.

And so you calculate the risk.

Is it what I really want? Is it worth pursuing even if nothing comes of it? What are the pros and cons of taking this risk? What might I lose? What might I gain?

All growth seems to happen when it becomes uncomfortable to remain where and how you are. And whether it manifests itself the way you hoped it would or not, growth always adds value, sometimes it even leads to more than you envisioned.


What’s the most important risk you ever took? Did it work out the way you hoped it would? What did you learn through the process?
