Live Bold, Daring and Imaginatively

Posted By: Randy GageJuly 15, 2018

So many people are going through life walking on eggshells, keeping their head down, desperately trying to make it to death unnoticed.

What’s the point?

Their highest value appears to be avoiding confrontation, or the slightest possibility of controversy.  In Oz, they call this the tall poppy syndrome, based on the philosophy that the tallest flowers are the ones that get cut first.  So millions go through their lives, intent on keeping their heads below the cubicle.

They lose sales because they are afraid someone will tell them ‘no.’  They squander the chance at prosperity because they’re afraid to fail.  And they miss a chance at love, for fear of being rejected.

Yes, ships are safe in the harbor, but that’s not what ships are for.

Beat the drum, dance your dance, make a commotion.  Take a fucking shot!

Conflict can be positive when you learn from it.  Confrontation can be very helpful if it’s done respectfully.  Most of what is called controversial today is only controversial to fearful people.  Speaking up and taking a stand involve risks.  But almost everything worth doing, having or becoming involves risks.

If you’re not taking any risks, you not really living your life.  So here's the real question for you...

What risk should you be taking, right now?

  1. Okay, Randy, you have convinced me to participate in risky behavior. I'm going out to my backyard and juggling chainsaws. Just so you know, if I lose a finger or hand, I will be calling my attorney - I will probably have to use my nose to do it, but what the hell.
