Think of the risks you have taken in the past. Some emotional gambles have worked spectacularly well and others have backfired badly. Or so you are inclined to think. But how can you be so sure? Perhaps the problems you encountered were perfect in their own way. Perhaps you really needed to go through those difficulties. Perhaps, without them, other wonderful things would never have been possible. Caution rarely gets us very far in life. Courage rarely proves regrettable. Don't be put off by past problems; just be inspired by future possibilities.
