Quick Takeaway: Risk, Reward and Optimism


This morning involved getting up early for an appointment,  having a full breakfast, and a planning and strategy session about how to reinvest a recent reward.

In retrospect, the reward would not have happened without taking risks and being open to and ready for opportunities as they came along.

So what’s the takeaway?

There is no reward without risk.   Also, optimism accompanies risk because you have to trust that all your efforts will result in success and that your outcome will be favorable.

“Optimism is the faith that leads to achievement. Nothing can be done without hope and confidence.”

– Helen Keller
