#6 SELF-GAIN: Risk Versus Reward
We make decisions weighing the Risks that one path presents versus the Rewards potential of taking that path.
We don’t change the path we are on because we can always find Risks.
We forget that there is a Risk in doing nothing – which means doing the same things we have been doing.
Staying in our ‘Comfort Zone’.
As if there are few Risks and there are sufficient Rewards in continuing to live our life the same way over and over again.
How has that been working out for you??
We want Success. We work hard to avoid Failure.
We keep trying to achieve Success by avoiding the Risks.
We block the Rewards by focusing on the Risks.
We Fail when the Rewards don’t flow our way.
Because we live these filters of Avoiding Risk (Block Rewards, Fail and Live in the Comfort Zone) versus Embracing Rewards (Succeed and Transform How You Live) we don’t see or we reject immediately most of the opportunities that we could embrace.
We filter out the new opportunities that transform our life.
We live the same-old, same-old, same-old.
Try using this question when you start each day, and when you need to make a choice on what path to take:
“If I Knew I Couldn’t Fail, What Life Would I Live?”
