What I Do

This is real good. I want to throw in like 10 cliche Michael Jordan quotes right now.

Fantastic advice! I have learned far more from my failures than my successes.

Great reminder! :)

Such a good timely word man!

I'm on the brink of two big risks - needed to hear this!

How about Fred Wilpon - the CEO of the New York Mets.

Did his stock go up this week?

Who the what??

This raises a question for me. You recently wrote about "the too early ask" which has the potential to sink, or greatly set back, a project. So how do you (personally or hypothetically) balance not blowing your chance, and not being afraid of failure?
BTW, loving these posts, encouraging, challenging and insightful.

sam, after wise counsel is sought, after the risks are evaluated, after heeding the words of championing experts, after the market is studied... there still remains risk. you can prepare for it, but you cannot eliminate it entirely

Powerful. If you had a Dream Year blog with posts like this a few times a week.. it would blow up (and become a great lead generator for future Dream Year program takers). Just sayin' :)

Ben, it's posts like these that make it a killer to have scheduling conflicts for Dream Year. Look forward to making it happen one year.

19 years ago I took my wife on perhaps the biggest risk of our lives--we moved to Mongolia, where the living was anything but easy. But because of that risk I am right now writing this in Mongolia, where I came to share in the celebration of the 20th anniversary of the coming of the Good News to this great nation. Risks are worth celebrating!

Amen. Great post, Ben. Thanks for the challenge.

True dat.

Fantastic. Needed to hear this as God is opening up new opportunities for our ministry. Walking on water can be scary at first, but we know who's holding us up.
