Things Don’t Come Easy

Posted By Stan

Unless you’re one of those rare lucky souls that just seem to have everything fall in their lap. Like winning the lottery, picking the right horse, shares or whatever. Then most things in life require considerable effort to get.

Years ago I came across a quotation which really struck a chord with me. You know, one of those light bulb moments. I’m not going to dribble on, it speaks for itself, so here it is.


To laugh is to risk appearing the fool,

To weep is to risk appearing sentimental,

To reach out for another is to risk involvement,

To expose feelings is to risk exposing true self,

To place your ideas, your dreams before the crowd is to risk their loss,

To love is to risk not being loved in return,

To live is to risk dying,

To hope is to risk despair,

To try is to risk failure,

But risk must be taken, because the greatest hazard in life is to risk nothing.

The person who risks nothing, does nothing, has nothing, and is nothing.

He may avoid suffering and sorrow, but he simply cannot learn, feel, change, grow, love, live.

Chained by his certitudes, he is a slave, he has forfeited freedom.

Only a person who risks – is truly free.

Building a business on the internet requires effort, stepping out of your comfort zone, for things to change something has to change. Always do what you’ve always done and you’ll always have what you’ve always had.

I love these little sayings they’re what get me going and keep me going. Commit to doing, don’t just buy stuff, use it. Take a risk, after all success is only getting up one more time than you fall down.
