Miracle of Life - How We Came To Be Believe Achieve Hugo and Roxanne

July 2, 2009

Life = Risk

Life is about taking risks. How is one to improve upon themselves if they're always laying low in their comfort zone? Taking risks is essential to our personal growth and development, much as air is essential to our lungs. Without taking risks and even failing at those attempts, we're truly not ever "living."

Take note of the following most influential and successful "Risk-Takers" ever known. Most of you would have no idea what great risks they took to achieve their dreams and goals. Some of their risks were follow by failure, but they never gave up. The greatest risks anyone can take is to believe in themselves and in the beauty of their dreams, to pursue their passion and not let anything get in the way. Not even yourself, your fears or your failures.

Today, take a risk on You just as these following inspirational figures had.

*She was dismissed from Drama School with a note that read, "....wasting her time. She's too shy to put her best foot forward." ~Speaking of Lucille Ball

*They were turned down by the Decca recording company who said, "....we don't like their sound and guitar music is on the way out." ~Speaking of the Beatles

*He was a failed soldier, farmer and Real Estate agent. At 38 years old, he went to work for his father as a handyman. ~Speaking of Ulysses S. Grant

*He was cut from the high school basketball team. He went home, locked himself in his room and cried. ~Speaking of Michael Jordan

*A teacher told him he was too stupid to learn anything and he should go into a field where he might succeed by virtue of his pleasant personality. ~Speaking of Thomas Edison

*He was fired from a newspaper because he lacked imagination and had no original ideas. ~Speaking of Walt Disney

*His fiance died. He failed in business twice. He had a nervous breakdown. He was defeated in eight elections. ~Speaking of Abraham Lincoln

  5. Hugo and Roxanne,
    Thank you for this great post. It is worth the journey and what we learn from it. If we do not try we will not learn anything at all. All of these people had failure in their lives but went beyond that failure to out do all the rest.
