Daily Word: Take a Chance! (You Have Everything to Gain & Nothing to Lose)

Greetings and salutations, my creatures of excellence!

Welcome to the best week of your life! Claim it and make it happen! Today's Daily Word is dedicated to Taking a Chance! Yesterday, I celebrated my 30th birthday for the second year in a row, and during my annual reflection, I realized that I came a long way in just one year. Exactly a year ago, I decided to leave Corporate America in search of a dream! A dream that at first seemed distant, but as time progressed, it grew closer and closer!

I say everyday that I am blessed with many opportunities, but the truth is, these opportunities would have never presented themselves if I hadn't taken a chance. As human beings, we yearn so much for certainty that we like to shy away from anything that is not guaranteed. But the more we live life, the more we will realize that nothing is guaranteed! The fastest way to getting what you deserve out of life is to dare to go after it! Following a dream may be the toughest thing that you will ever do, because there are many tests that you must past before you are granted your wish.

Despite that, if you don't play you will never win! It is always to early to quit, so if you stay focused, you will achieve your goal undoubtedly! Take a chance on your dream! The worst thing that can happen is...sorry, couldn't even think of anything!! You have everything to gain and nothing to lose!! Take that leap and make your dream happen!!
