To end off this piece, a few final thoughts on taking risks in life... RISK:
Seeing that I've taken one or two...or three or four in my time. And achieving any type of success always involves taking some form of calculated riskI love quotation, 'Be bold and unseen forces come to your aid'. It certainly worked for us when we came to New Zealand with virtually nothing. Remember past is unimportant. Only present and future matter. And future belongs to calculated risk takers. I have to think so with my life way it is, don't I? And more importantly, I need a great deal of FAITH...to keep me going day after day.
"The greatest risk in life is to risk NOTHING... The person who risks nothing, does nothing, has nothing, is nothing, and becomes nothing..."
- Norman Vincent Peale.
"Only person who risks is truly free. A man's con- quest of himself dwarfs conquest of Mount Everest". - N.V.Peale (again).
"Whatever you do, or dream you can do, begin it. Boldness has genius, power and magic in it". - Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe
To end off this chapter, a final thought from plain old "Joe Bloggs"... Whatever you want or desire in life, remember Hamlet's words written by great English playwright, William Shakespeare:
"To thine own self be true".
Then you will be happy. Be happy.
