There are those who think me fearless
and feel my blood must run quite cold
I'm just at peace with all the outcomes
so all my actions seem quite bold

For I, too, face those decisions
to go where none have gone before
I always choose the path less traveled
to see what life may have in store

They see my choices and they tremble
asking "What kind of man is this?
Who walks the paths where others fear to tread,
and welcomes every risk?"

Well, I'll share with you my secret
when faced with challenges each day
I conjure up my worst scenario,
and then this is what I say:

"Whatever be the final outcome
of this next choice that I shall make
I am prepared to face the consequence
of each result that's in its wake"

"For there's no fall that's everlasting
no wall I'll meet that never ends
so all I need is strength and time
to overcome and start again"

For in this life there's just two choices
You either live it or you don't
One choice will lead to where you're wishing
the other, well, quite simply won't

So, am I fearless? No, I face demons
towards the goals for which I strive
I've simply learned to see beyond them
and have the faith I will survive!

COMMENTARY: Taking Risks. As I was explaining how to handle risk in life, I came up with portions of the commentary below, which led to today's inspiration.

There is no risk. There are simply choices with consequences. One choice holds the chance of getting me where I want to go. The other does not. Since I'm committed to getting to my goal, there really is no other choice that I can make. For me, the greater risk is inactivity.

As long as you can deal with the outcomes, what others see as a risk is nothing but the opportunity to succeed. Eventually, what others will consider your fearless approach to life, youíll know simply as a commitment to your own success.
