Chapter 3, Page 4, Book 19

Take a chance!  All life is a chance.  That man who goes farther is generally the one who is willing to do and dare.

Dale Carnegie

March 4 -Take a chance on life

Nothing important was ever achieved without someone taking a chance.

H. Jackson Brown, Jr.

Life is too short to wait.  Every day is another chance to change.  Every accomplishment starts with the decision to try.  Never put off something important to you.  Every day is a chance to start again.

Chances are that we do take a lot of chances in life…We try to do things, we fail, and we try over and over again.  Taking a chance to get it right.

Spring is all about taking chances, we plant seeds and hope they will grow.  They say our mind is like a garden and our thoughts are the seeds we plant.  With every thought comes the chance that something good is going to grow.

Living life with thoughts and regrets of what ifs’ is not truly living.  So take that chance because life is all about taking chances. The real fun in life is the journey and enjoying the presence moment.

You can learn so much from taking chances, whether they work out or not.  Either way, you can grow from the experience and become stronger and smarter.

John Legend

Take a chance! Don't put off until tomorrow what you can do today.

That was my GEM for today mined from your post. We all are hesitant to 'try again' after a failure, doing it again doesn't guarantee success, but it does allow us to learn a little more.

This post reminds me so much of my late father. More often than not, his 'winning ticket' wound up litter; his real estate speculation turned woeful. His was not a lengthy life, but how he seized every opportunity with both hands! I'm not nearly as brave, but thankful for the chances I have taken.

chance encounters greet us everyday. "Never put off something important to you."

Have you read all of Dale Carnegie books - he was a man before his time.

It is good to take chances and a few risks in life indeed. That is what makes life worth living sometimes and you just know what you might find out along the way.
