Fortune favors the brave. (Dictionary of English Proverbs/Thomas Preston)
Where there are greater risks, lies greater rewards. Staying in a comfortable, stress free, and low risk position will not lead to prosperity. Sometimes we have to step outside our comfort zone, stretch our abilities, and endure stressful challenges in order to succeed to our greatest potential. Remaining in a safe, sure job may have less stress but it will also be more boring and less fulfilling. Don’t be afraid to try new and difficult things. Allow yourself the ability to grow and develop more skills. You are never to old to stop learning and achieving.
