Life is a Risky Business

by Michael Berry on July 14, 2014

Risk assessment is a part of everyday life. Each time you step outside your house, you risk encountering some force that could impact your life. Each telephone call you receive could be giving you life-changing information. Each trip on the freeway brings with it the inherent risk of traveling at 70 miles per hour. Each trip to the doctor brings with it the possibility of learning critical information about your health. Each interaction you have invites the unknown.

In view of the literally hundreds, if not thousands, of possibilities that could happen in your life on a daily basis, it could be said that the overwhelming number of experiences you encounter have little or no negative impact on you at all. In many instances they are even positive!

This is, in reality, what life is like for you! Every day.

Is this the way you experience your life?

With this perspective in mind, what difference in results could you create if you had more certainty in your decisions? And, as I discussed earlier, the way we create certainty in our life is by making decisions and finding out for ourselves. Which takes us to a very important realization:

The path to creating certainty and confidence is the same path that brings into reality what you want for your life. Decisions are at the heart of both.

One choice creates both simultaneously.

When you fail to make decisions, you set into motion two destructive forces: you cut off the possibility of creating what you desire for your life, and you eliminate your step towards certainty that is an important part of a satisfying life.

Personal development is our business and our life.

In personal development we learn that “we all see and experience the world not as it is, but as we are”.
