The Gift Of Risk-An Excerpt From The New Book Practical Conscious Creation

We face risk in almost every daily decision we make. Unfortunately, this is why many people are stuck in neutral in their lives-they are risk-averse.

How do you define risk? It is evaluating a new opportunity in light of standing steadfastly on previous ground. Risk is taking a leap into the unknown
when you can safely stay where all the factors are known and familiar. What must a person give up to gain anew?

What most people do not realize, though, is that risk is really a gift. It is an opportunity to rise to a new level, to have and demonstrate courage, to sharpen our decision-making skills, to explore new vistas with eyes open, to gain self-confidence when we have chosen well, to force ourselves to confront limiting
beliefs, and to discover and acknowledge our true capabilities. In other words, risk is an exceptional tool of spiritual growth.

Yes, risk can be scary, but it can also be a doorway to vast new personal and
financial blessings. Accepting the right risks can mean new fortune, new love,
new freedom, new expression, new joy, and more.

On the other hand there is a risk in not taking the risk. If you never say yes
to taking your future in your own hands because you fear not having a paycheck,
what might you lose? If you don’t ask her to marry you because you
fear commitment or constraint, what then happens when she accepts another

So how do we know which risks to take and which to forego?

1. When the Calculated Risk Adds Up:
You have thoroughly evaluated the
upside and downside versus what you would be sacrificing or changing.
If your potential upside outweighs all else, take the risk.

2. When The Only Thing Holding You Back is Fear:
If the opportunity has
great promise and you’re waffling because of “what if. . . ” and you’re envisioning
all the scary reasons that things could go wrong, then turn it
around and ask: “What if I didn’t have any fear about this, would I do it?”
Once you eliminate all the “made-up” scenarios, look at the reality, and if
the opportunity is still strong, then do it! Fear should not be the reason
holding you back from advancing.

3. When You Have the Capital to Invest:
If you have enough to invest
safely-whether that is your time, money, expertise, or emotional
capacity-then why not? Leverage what you have for something potentially

4. When It’s Time to Burn the Ships:
If you have refused to move forward
because it’s safe where you are or you always want to have an “out,” it’s
time to burn the ships. Without risk, there is no reward. Life can be very
debilitating when you’re in a rut. Take the risk and get out of the rut.

5. When Where You’re Going Could Be Better Than Where You’ve Been:

Sometimes you just have to take a risk because it can’t get any worse than
where you are. Risk in this case represents movement and progress because
you’re not really making a sacrifice. You can only go up from here.

6. When Your Intuition, Instinct, or Internal Voice Urges You Onward:

Ah! A very important reason to say yes to the risk. Your divine connection
is telling you there is a purpose for your soul in moving forward. Listen
carefully in your quiet state, and hear what messages you are being given.
Contrarily, if your inner voice tells you not to advance, do not ignore it.
Wait till the next opportunity comes along.

7. When It Feels Right:
There is a telltale sign that often indicates when you
are on the right path. It simply “feels” right. You have a sense of expansion
and openness. Project yourself ahead into the opportunity and see how
you feel-is it expansive or is it constrictive? This should help guide your
decision as to whether to take the risk.

8. When Your Passion is Engaged:
If you are excited about the opportunity
because it involves something you love, or it springboards you creatively,
then clearly the Universe is going to help support you in the new endeavor.
It is no guarantee of success, of course, because other factors may be at
play, but your passion and love will energetically go a long way toward
aligning the forces for success.

9. When All the Synchronicities are Lining Up in Your Favor:
This is guidance that is leading you to make the change that this risk represents. If the
Universe is already showing its support, isn’t it time you climbed aboard?

10. Consciously Create the Opportunity with Vision and Love:

Put your efforts toward using your extraordinary powers of Conscious Creation to
manifest the success of the venture or decision, and minimize any of the
risk. See it succeeding with no roadblocks, obstacles, or downsides. Then
step into that new reality.

    over again to read additional news.

  • gamefly May 6, 2019, 9:45 am

    I was curious if you ever considered changing the layout of your site?
    Its very well written; I love what youve got
    to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of
    content so people could connect with it better.
    Youve got an awful lot of text for only having
    1 or 2 images. Maybe you could space it out better?

  • minecraft download free May 7, 2019, 4:00 pm

    when opening in IE, it has some overlapping issues.
    I just wanted to provide you with a quick heads up! Other than that,
    great site!

    But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using WordPress on numerous websites for

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    First of all I would like to say superb blog! I had a quick question that I’d like
    to ask if you do not mind. I was curious to find out how you center yourself and clear your head prior to writing.

    I have had difficulty clearing my mind in getting my ideas out there.
    I truly do take pleasure in writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are usually lost just trying to figure out how to begin. Any ideas or hints?
    Many thanks!
