What are the odds of winning the lottery? More than a million to one, right? Yet every week so many people willingly buy several tickets because of the tiny chance at winning it big. “What’s the worst that could happen?” is their attitude and it’s the perfect attitude to have. If you pursue a goal and fail, are you any worse off then before? Yes, the odds are sometimes against us. But if we only settled for sure things, how empty would our lives be? Remember, the only time you are guaranteed to fail is when you do not even make the attempt. Even if you have taken risks during the past and always seem to come up short, don’t stop taking them! You never know when the reward may finally pay off. So take that chance, it could end up being the success story you talk about for the next 10 years.
