Courage, Risks & Rewards

If you feel that it's time for a change in a specific area of your life, but you aren't sure how to make it happen, then this is for you!

Finally, discover a proven process to access your courage, take healthy chances, and reap exciting rewards, so you can stop feeling stuck, defeated, and frustrated! You can take control of your life, reach your full potential, and create unprecedented happiness and success. Let me show you how.

Since you are here, it might be time for a change, but where to begin? Change can be scary, and some of the following might sound familiar:

• You know that in order to create change, you have to take risks. But taking risks often stops you in your tracks, because you have a lot to lose.

• Although you seek change, you're afraid of making a big mistake and not being able to recover from it.

• Your life is “safe,” as it is. But right now, "safe" feels synonymous with “boring and mediocre”! You want your life to be GREAT… and you know you need to take some chances in order for that to happen, but you're not sure which chances to take.

• Your gut is telling you it's time to take action – even if that means moving beyond your comfort zone – but your mind is telling you, "That's just crazy!"

• You're afraid taking a risk might result in a waste of money, embarrassment, rejection, or loss … so you stick with what you know, even though you believe you could be happier and more fulfilled.

If any of this resonates with you, then I have good news: you're in the right place, and you're not alone. It's not your fault you shy away from risk. As humans, we're hard-wired to remain "safe," even if what we want most falls outside of that place. Every day, millions of people avoid taking risks and stepping outside their comfort zones. The result: millions of people end up feeling stuck, like they're not living the life they desire, and like there must be more to life.

You don't have to be one of them. You can learn how to access the courage to take healthy risks, and when you do, you'll reap the rewards in terms of fulfillment and satisfaction.Even some of the most famously successful people failed—and risked and failed again—before they reached the pinnacles of their careers.

Oprah Winfrey was fired by a TV producer because she was "unfit for television." Of course, she went on to become a television powerhouse, and one of the most successful people in America.

J.K. Rowling, author of the Harry Potter series, was a single mother on welfare when all 12 major publishers rejected her manuscript. Eventually, a small publishing house accepted it and gave her a small advance. She's since sold more than 400 million copies of the Harry Potter books.

Stephen King's first novel, Carrie, was rejected 30 times before it was published. In fact, he threw the manuscript in the trash at one point (where it was later rescued by his wife). He kept a collection of his rejection slips in his office. Today, he has sold more than 350 million copies of more than 50 novels.

Bill Gates—the co-founder of Microsoft—failed when he launched his first business. The machine he and his partners had built to process raw traffic data flopped when they presented it to an employee of a traffic company.

And Henry Ford failed at automobile companies twice before he revolutionized the industry by pioneering the Model T and the assembly line with the goal of putting an automobile in the driveway of every home.

Thomas Edison failed more than 10,000 times to create a commercially viable electric lightbulb. When a newspaper reporter asked if he felt like a failure who should give up, he responded, "Why would I feel like a failure? And why would I ever give up? I now know definitely over 9,000 ways an electric lightbulb will not work. Success is almost in my grasp." His company, GE, is still one of the largest publicly traded firms in the world.

Each of these individuals took risks. They failed. They picked themselves up and tried again. They risked, over and over again. Why? Because they knew they had more to gain than they did to lose. And that's what I want you to realize, right here, right now:

You too have more to gain than you do to lose. This isn’t to say that taking risks is comfortable, by any means. No one likes to lose, or to fail, or to be embarrassed, but if you never take risks, you never know what you're truly capable of.

So how do you know which risks are healthy, and which are crazy? And when you know which risks are healthy, how do you actually take that leap?

You begin right here. I'd like to invite you to join my self-paced program "Courage, Risks and Rewards – Taking Chances to Change Your Life!"

Here's just a taste of what you'll learn when you enroll:

Part 1. Taking a Chance and Making a Mistake

If you've ever held back from doing something because it was too risky, then it's time to change the way you think about taking risks/chances. Taking chances is an integral part of life! It's natural to experience fear or trepidation, and it's also very possible to overcome them … when you have the right tools.

During this module, you'll learn:

• Why people often shy away from taking risks, and how to begin changing your mindset around doing so.

• Why risk-taking is essential if you want your life to change for the better, and how to determine whether you're willing to take a certain risk (or not!).

• What you need to know about the perspective that can impact your willingness to take chances.

Part 2. Your Attitude Toward Taking Chances

You're taking chances, all day, every day … whether you realize it or not. Every time you get in your car, walk across the street, or get on a flight, you're taking a risk. You can't completely avoid risk taking. What you CAN do is shift your attitude toward taking chances.

During this module, you'll learn:

• What can help or hamper your efforts when you're taking a risk.

• The truth about being "safe," and the truth about doing nothing.

• An exercise for determining how courageous you feel about specific activities that require different degrees of risk.

Part 3. Why We Avoid Taking Risks & What Supports Risk Taking

Here, we'll continue to explore what it means to have courage, take risks, and reap the rewards. We take a deeper look at the positive side of risk taking. Once you've discovered why you avoid taking risks, we'll explore how to put supports in place to help you take more healthy risks.

During this module, you'll learn:

• How in some cases, our desire to avoid dumb risks also means we miss smart risks that come our way … and how to recognize those smart risks when they cross your path.

• What you need to do before you stretch outside of your comfort zone to take new chances.

• 5 powerful perspectives on risk taking that will empower you to take more chances.

• Why risk-taking isn't necessarily about doing more, and what it means, instead.

Part 4. What I Gain from Taking Chances

People often avoid taking risks because they're afraid of what they'll lose. It's time to shift your perspective and consider, instead, what you'll gain if the risk pays off.

During this module, you'll learn:

• A process by which you can determine whether you're willing to take a certain risk, based on what you have to gain.

• A new, logical approach to risk-taking that makes "losing" irrelevant.

• What's bound to happen if you consistently take risks in life.

Part 5. Review and Lock It In

Here, we'll review what you've learned so far, and you'll answer a final set of questions to lock in the new information.

In short, courage, risks and rewards gives you everything you need to shift your perspective around, taking the risks necessary to step out of our comfort zone and into your full potential, success, and fulfillment. You can expect a huge return in terms of your ability to create change in your life by taking healthy risks that will pay off. You're receiving the tools you need to make a mindset shift that has the potential to change your life as you step outside of your comfort zone and reach your full potential.

The choice is yours; you can continue on as you have, remaining safe — but dissatisfied — inside your comfort zone, or you can take a small, healthy step this very moment, and learn new skills that will allow you to shift your mindset and take charge of your life's journey.
