Step Out and Success Will Knock On Your Door

One of the fastest ways to succeed in life is to take calculated risks. Those who play safe hardly stand out in their generation.

The people who break new grounds and make history are those who take initiative. The world belongs to those who reach out and grab it with both hands.

The world belongs to those who do something rather than just wish and hope, and plan and pray, and intend to do something someday, when everything is just right. Those who wish and hope that things will be better one day will remain wanderers on earth.

Successful people are not necessarily those who make the right decisions all the time. No one can do that, no matter how smart he or she is. But once successful people have made a decision, they take action. They begin moving toward their objectives step by step.

As they do that, they begin to get feedback or signals that enable them to self-correct. They continually get information that enables them to adjust their plans in large and small ways. But the only way to do this is to take action!

Life is a process of trial and course corrections. When an airplane takes off, the pilot makes continual course corrections. A little to the North, a little to the South, to higher and lower altitudes. The pilot continually adjust direction and throttle.

And sure enough, several hours later, the plane touches down at exactly the time predicted when it first became airborne upon leaving the airport. The entire journey has been a process of approximations and course adjustments. This is how the journey of life is.

If you refuse to take action because you want to have a one hundred percent guarantee that you will succeed, you will never accomplish any meaningful thing in life.

The point is that there are no guarantees in life. Everything you do, even crossing the street is filled with uncertainty. You can never be  completely sure that any action or behavior of yours is going to bring about the desired result.

There is always a risk in the journey of life. See beyond the risk and pursue your dreams with the tenacity of a bulldog. Step out of your cocoon and make your life count. Take initiative!

Write that book, create that application, call that potential investor, meet that government official, write that letter, make that phone call, build that house, get married to that lady, go into that partnership, travel to that nation, get out of that chair of lamentations and make your moment count immediately!

Launch Out Immediately

A twelve-year study at Babson College into the subsequent careers of the graduates of the schools MBA program in entrepreneurship by researchers concluded that those who were successful achieved their goals because of their use of the Corridor Principle.

The Babson researchers likened the achievement of business success to proceeding down a corridor. Each of us stands at the entrance to this corridor, looking into the darkness, and we see the corridor disappear into the distance.

The researchers said that the difference between the successes and the failures in their study could be summarized by one word: launch!

Successful people were willing to launch themselves down the corridor of opportunities without any guarantee of what would occur. They were willing to risk uncertainty and overcome the normal fears and doubts that hold the great majority in place.

Dear friend, I want you to understand that you can only succeed if you take the first step. Stop trying to get the full picture, just step out and keep making adjustments as you go on. Until you step out from the known to the unknown, you can never achieve success in life. The ball is in your court!
