If you read history or, like me, watch it reenacted in film and TV, you know the signers of the Declaration of Independence took tremendous risks I am grateful to those that struggled for our nation’s freedom. And I want to celebrate this important day by exploring the very nature of risk—the possibility of loss. After all, the signers’ failure would have had personal impact—imprisonment or death, along with a collective impact on America: no independence. Their risks rewrote our future.
“You can never solve a problem on the level on which it was created.” —Albert Einstein. I don’t know about you, but I think that Einstein guy was a real brainiac. You see, the founders had to rise above the problem and say, “The solution isn’t merely lowering our tea taxes—the solution lies in freeing ourselves from servitude to a monarchy.”
So why do you and I fear risk? We’re not wagering our freedom, or our lives. Yet we’re hindered by fear of debt, and the possibility of failure. But the truth is, we won’t experience success without venturing something. Success happens when we aren’t strait-jacketed by fear.
Do you believe in your right to pursue personal wealth and independence? Are you held captive by your fears? Does your company have the motivation and capability to be profitable? If the answers are yes, I urge you to take calculated risks. Our risks allow us to rewrite our future.
