All is Not Lost

A risk-taker is someone who is impulsive and unbelievably curious about why things are the way they are. They challenge the do’s and don’ts convinced that they’ve got it right. Risk-takers create their own way of doing things with a frivolous matter of fact about its consequence. The people that listen to the wrong type of counsel reap terrible results.

Sadly, not much thought is given to the dangers of taking risk because they are going to do it anyway. Risk-takers scare the life out of me. There are times when you must trust your heart and take a leap of faith but if the alarms are going off no number of leaps of faith will prevent a person from falling off a cliff.

No one should gamble something as valuable as life and your inheritance hoping for a win. Some folks even if they win after a risky transaction, they will continue to make bad choices until they eventually lose it all. I choose to believe that life is way too precious to gamble away without understanding the psychological and physical effect it can have on both your health and your future.

No one can force anyone to stop, look and listen before planning a move. No matter what you say or do to stop a risk-taker ultimately the only person who can stop the process is the person whose life will be impacted by their choices.

We can learn a lot about people by the choices they make.

Proverbs 12:15 says that a fool is right in his own eyes, but a wise man listens to advice. When we hear good advice, we should take it and quickly apply it to our life.

We can create the environment that’s right for us and those we are leading by seeking counsel. Surrounding yourself with mature and responsible people is wisdom.

I don’t know who said it but it sure makes a lot of sense “A shark in a fish tank will grow eight inches, but in the ocean, it will grow eight feet.”

Many times, we find ourselves in the wrong environment after taking a risk but if you change your environment there’s a greater possibility that you can super exceeds your expectations.

No one can change, heal, succeed, or bloom in the same environment that made them sick and tired. You took a risk and it didn’t work out don’t live with the mistake.

Only you have the power to change what you don’t like. Life is too important to be gambled. The things that are hurting you are put in your way to see if you are willing to fight for what you deserve.

Taking a risk isn’t the end of the road. Problems don’t just disappear because you lost your way. Learn, try again and make a change of the environment that got you unhappy.

When a situation seems hopeless trust God’s guidance. Without good advice nothing changes. It takes a change of environment for things to go right.
