The risk is NOT risking.
Yes, it can be a frightening proposition to walk away from the known – even when it’s a bad known — for the unknown.
Yes, it’s a RISK.
But think about this: The choice to remain in the “losing” situation ALSO involves risk. Potentially much greater risk than the alternative!
“The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago. The second best time is now.” That simple bit of ancient wisdom is so, so powerful, isn’t it?
Risk is unavoidable. The key is to take the right risks.
Forget about what’s happened up until this point. Cut your losses. STOP them from continuing. Sure, things might be different and better now if you’d done so earlier. Don’t brood over that fact. Accept it — then move on from it.
Start now. Make a move in a positive direction. Take a risk that’s going to move you forward, not backwards.
