Taking Risks Video

Whether in our personal or professional lives, the elements of risk, chance and fate will sometimes come into play. I don’t always recommend putting yourself on top of a wild horse (as you will see in this video) but I surely am an advocate for taking positive risks in life. Success depends not just on preparation and hard work, but also an ability to take action and ride out a sometimes-bumpy ride.

Now saddle up and jump on those horses!

Also please feel free to send me links of any/all cool videos you might want to recommend. This particluar video was cut & produced by a young mister Dan Cox of Victoria B.C. He is also responsibile for Erik’s Hulk video of last week. Good job Dan!

YEEEHAH!

    Oh. My. Goodness. That looks like so much fun! What happened to the horse when Erik got on? He get confused for a moment and think he was a monkey?

    It is funny that you write about postive risks. Fall of last year I started feeling very lethargic, like I was stuck in rut. I wasn’t all that excited about anything and nothing was really sparking my interest or curiosity, so for my New Years resolution I decided to make a change. I decided that every week of 2006 I was going to take a risk, try something new, experience life outside my comfort zone. (I am proud to say I haven’t missed a week yet!) It doesn’t have to be anything huge or earth-shattering, but it has to be something I’ve never done before: cook a new meal, go skydiving, attend a public lecture by myself, practice meditation for at least a month.

    I am enjoying it much more than I thought I would – I look forward to Sundays because it marks a new week and a new adventure. I’m also tracking my risks so that the last week of this year I can reward myself (although I don’t know with what yet … I welcome suggestions). Positive risks people! Challenge yourselves and you’ll be amazed at what you’re capable of!

    Love to grow,

    Hey Jen,

    I think it is great that you taking postive risks this year and keep letting us know how they turn out.

    I would suggest going surfing, nothing beats it.

    Surfing, eh? There isn’t a lot of surfing in Alberta that I am aware of (other than on the net). A road trip to BC is being tossed around for the end of August, but I wouldn’t know where to go when I got to the coast or who to ask for help. Any recommendations for companies to rent boards and suits from? Lessons? Prime spots? Surfing would be a really fun risk for me and a really entertaining site for everyone else since my center of balance is all but nonexistent: I trip over air walking around my neighborhood. :)

    If we think about ‘risks’ as ‘adventures’, they somehow become much less threatening and a great deal more inviting…
    And a life of adventure is a life to be cherished…
