Great Risks and Great Rewards

NaBloPoMo March 2013Today's NaBloPoMo prompt is, "Do you believe the saying that with great risks come great rewards?"

I think this is terribly cliche. I also think it is terribly true.

As I have mentioned in previous posts, my life did not really start happening until I started taking risks, and putting myself out there. It's difficult to do, though, especially if you don't feel confident, or if you are afraid of hearing someone say, "NO."

When you take a risk, you are opening yourself up to gaining a reward, but it's how we perceive the reward that is the key. Perhaps the reward is something tangible, like gaining a new client, or meeting new friend. How about the intangibles, though? Maybe the reward is in the gaining of confidence, or the acceptance of hearing the word, "NO."

What do you think? Do you think great rewards come with great risks?
