Program Summary

Life is all about choices. The decision to leap into something new and different can be both terrifying and thrilling. Now it's safe to assume that most people know it's a bad idea to take an ill-advised risk where the expected outcome will most likely be negative. But guess what? It's an equally bad idea to pass up a smart risk where clearly the expected outcome has a significant chance of being positive.

Taking chances always comes with feelings of apprehension, making us feel like we are in a win or lose, succeed or fail, do or die situation. But we must remember that taking chances can also offer significant rewards. When taking chances, and stretching beyond our comfort zones, there are any number of things that could happen. But trying to get through life without uncertainty or risk limits the possibility of being able to change our lives for the better.

So we must choose to take chances and create opportunities for happiness and fulfillment that, in the end, far outweigh the risks we had to take to get there. But as is the case with most things in life, even taking chances requires understanding and practice.

In this teleseminar, your participants will examine the concept of risk and break it down into specific, manageable steps. They will look at risk from different perspectives and explore how the rewards for taking chances far outweigh the costs.

Give your clients a chance to live their best life by taking chances that will move them forward in positive directions. This teleseminar will open new doors to exciting opportunities!
