The first step into Risk is the toughest to take.

A close second is every step that follows. This past week at the Professional Communicators Summit, in a room packed with possibilities, a few people dared to take that first step. Dreaming and risking draped the room like art. And it was beautiful.

For three long and hard days, Ken Davis and Danny de Armas shared their secrets to making career goals a marketable reality, equipping the dreamers with a little business know-how to make it all happen. It’s good stuff. Seriously good stuff. I went because it’s part of what I do. My job, sure, but a job I believe in and am stoked about. And something I do even when I’m having coffee with a writer or taking a walk with a friend. I love seeing other people succeed. At the same time, I have a few of my own dreams I’m trying to wrestle into reality.

This entire process makes my head hurt. Here’s why: Stepping into The Great Unknown is tough. As much as I love to dream, the future is intimidating and risky, enough so that sometimes it’s easier to just stay put in The Predictable rather than take that first step.

So, I’m asking you straight up: What’s your dream? And what Risk is keeping your feet from taking a gamble on The Great Unknown? Maybe your next step is to dare to say it out loud. RIGHT HERE.

You can do it. YES, you CAN. What’s living without a little risk? One foot in front of the other, baby. I’m with you.
