Leaders are emotional risk takers

Most attempts to avoid risk can be traced back to protecting one’s emotional state. There are numerous labels for negative feelings that could result from taking a risk: embarrassment, loss, pain, anger, jealousy, disappointment, loneliness, emptiness, insignificance, despair, and countless more.

For many, these painful states of mind are enough to keep them in a familiar place opting for a path of comfort, security and predictability. But not surprisingly, this is also the sure path to a rather apathetic existence.

Mavericks understand that emotions are the amplifiers of experience. The most exhilarating, empowering, and memorable emotions involve some form of risk.  Through a willingness to put ourselves out there we can enjoy the deepest connection, feel the most intense elation, and experience the rapture of gratitude.

Life is a journey of emotions; the most precious of which await those willing to invest themselves emotionally into their work and relationships. This is indeed, is one of the truest acts of courage.

Be a Maverick!
