Tonight, a cancer survivor and former chicken-catcher stood side-by-side on a Hollywood stage and awaited the results of a vote that would change one of their lives forever. Kevin Skinner and Barbara Padilla have vastly different backgrounds, but one very important commonality. When an opportunity presented itself, they jumped at it.
The easy route is to simply lament your lot in life and do nothing. The problem, of course, with this strategy is that no possible good can come from it. Without taking a chance, neither Kevin nor Barbara would have been on that stage. Without taking a chance, you will never have the opportunity to realize your full potential.
Do you want more business?
Are you afraid to knock on doors? Are you hesitant to write a newsletter? Are you reluctant to post to your blog? Why? What's the worst that can happen? Someone might tell you to get the heck off of their property or toss your hard work into the garbage or chastise you for ending a sentence with a prepostion. So what? These aren't the people you are interested in dealing with anyway. Besides, it's not like you have to stand in front of millions of Americans and smile while someone known as "The Hoff" makes fun of your background.
Stepping out of your comfort zone is the only way to big successes. This is true whether you are trying to start a company, to buy a home or to win America's Got Talent. You may fail at times, but this will only make the rewards that much sweeter. Remember, if you don't take a chance, you'll never be on that stage.
