Greater Risks is Key to Achieving Success by John C. Maxwell


Boomer John Maxwell1 272x300 Greater Risks is Key to Achieving Success by John C. Maxwell

The willingness to take greater risks is a major key to achieving success, and you may be surprised that it can solve two very different kinds of problems.

The problem of hitting ALL of your goals,


The problem of hitting NO goals… because you never make any.

Take #1. Your solution: Take more risks; set more challenging – even frightening – goals. No, you probably won’t achieve all of them. But you will have stretched yourself and grown in the process. And the successes you have will be that much sweeter.

Take #2. Your solution: Paint some targets, in a variety of sizes. Give yourself big, medium and small goals, so you can start succeeding and develop momentum.

For today: Think about something you’d like to achieve. Make it big enough to scare you a little. Now write down a plan for moving toward it. Create mini-goals within the big goal, to set yourself up for continual progress. And include some risks. Find parts of the process where you can push the envelope, take more chances, and increase your opportunity for success.
