Progress Involves Risk~~Susie Austin

October 1


Progress always involves risk.


You can’t steal second base

and keep your foot on first.

–Fredrick B. Wilcox


This seemed like a fitting quote as the Brewers are in the playoffs for the first time in 26 years!




Progress is the key to realizing dreams and beginning goals. Progress involves risk. Can you remember a time where maybe you risked it all and it failed? Did you feel satisfied for at least trying? It is better to take that risk over and over again and fail than to keep saying what if? What about a time when you took that risk and were successful!




I take a risk every day when I sit at my computer and write. I am dyslexic and I have a difficult time with spelling and editing. I take the risk of making a mistake and having it posted on the internet. I feel I have a message to give will take that risk as long as someone hears the messages. My hope is this will become a daily motivational book in the future. What risk are you willing to take today? How about daring to dream, or making a significant change you having been thinking. How about starting a goals and writing them down?




In order to effect change you need to take a step in the right direction, get your foot off the bag and get into the game. Today make a conscious decision to make a change for one new positive thing this week. Remember to life well and to love those around you.



I am reminded of a wonderful quote:

Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring. All of which have the potential to turn a live around.
