"Progress always involves risks.

You can't steal second base
and keep your foot on first."

Author, Frederick B. Wilcox

 

Your action for today
is to identify an area where
you would like to see some progress
and see what risks
you're willing to take to have it happen.

I learned long ago in investing and one of my favorite sayings; "If it ain't a Steal, it ain't a Deal!" LOL

When I think about risk takers my first image is of Farmers (they also are at the top of the list for Faith) but that being said just look down your small town Main Street and see the local merchants who stuck out their necks to hang that shingle with their dreams name on it. Of course we can't forget about anyone working on commission either Thomas J. Nelson, REALTOR ® e-Pro CRS RCS-D Vets 😉

A wonderful nod to our entrepreneurs and farmers Bob "RealMan" Timm and so true - they (we) risk it daily by being self-employed.

Anyone first starting out in this Real Estate market is a risk taker. Getting buyers now is easy...getting homeowners to sell with no where to go, is not so easy!

Hello Thomas,  I and out helping neighbors cut up trees limps that came down with the snow last night, it can be a risk.

Hi Thomas- love it!!!   I can see where you want to take that foot off first base and head to second base but can't get your body to move. Very inspirational post.

Love the quote, Thomas.  Hesitancy is often a major cause of folks missing out on bigger things.

Without moving that foot from first base, there is no chance to go to second.

Hello Thomas - sometimes sports analogies have to "sink in" for me.  This one is a bit clearer.
