06 May Day #126 | May 06, 2018 – Just Increase Your Odds. That’s All You Must Do!
In life, there are no guarantees. Every decision we make is a form of gambling. There are those gambles that you have faith will pay out in the short or long run. But, even in the safest bet, there are no guarantees and there are no sure paths. Think about your career choice, your choice in partner, the location you chose to live and raise your children, the degree program that you did or did not select, or the friendships you have invested in. Which one is the sure path to peace, happiness, and success? Does this make sense now? In this life, nothing is guaranteed. Now, I am not saying this to bring you down on a Sunday morning. I’m actually saying it to lift your spirits. Many of you are passing on opportunity after opportunity awaiting a sure bet or guarantee before taking a chance in life on yourself. Well, wait no longer! Instead of worrying about the gamble—increase your odds! That is really the only thing you can do. This life is a walk in faith and a game of odds. Winning and being successful require belief, but it also requires practice, preparation, honing old skills, learning new skills, meeting the right people, etc. Do not wait for the sure bet to take a gamble on yourself. Take the chance that is compelling to you and on that is calling you—but continue to increase your odds along the way. That, my friend, is what all successful people do. Period.
Sending you Love & Light,
