Taking Risks

And there is a way to be okay even when you are way out on a limb, taking a risk, going into a beautiful, dangerous place where you have never been before.

Know who you are. Think about what you are doing and do what you do on purpose. Know what your strengths are and how to use them. Know what your weaknesses are and how to compensate for them. See how to succeed and know that you can. Be honest about your goals. Say what you intend to do and do what you say. Ask for what you want. Be honest about the risks to other people. Pay attention. Adapt. Warn people when they are in danger and help them adapt.

If you fail, accept it, admit it, and pay the price. Let the people who tried to help you pay the price, too, even though that is often harder. If you succeed, generously acknowledge the help you got and share the rewards. Whether you succeed or fail, keep pursuing your goals, learning, and growing.

Doing the Right Thing
and Achieving All Your Goals at the Same Time
