On Success and Taking Risks...

Blog quote #878 and #879...
"Only those who will risk going too far can possibly find out how far one can go." -T.S. Eliot-

"The secret to a rich life is to have more beginnings than endings." -Dave Weinbaum-
Today a 2 for 1...

The first quote by Eliot involves a bit of a catch 22 conundrum. How do we know what our limits are? The answer--we really don't. And  whatever we think is our limit, is likely a fraction of the true limit.

The human body can extend far beyond our wildest dreams. The person who lifts a a car to save an accident victim. The soul  who survives a life threatening excursion, not on purpose, but because they have to. In a more fun example, the olympic athlete that starts out in her first local  competition, and 8 years later finds herself being pushed to the brink by other superior athletes, her coach, and herself. 

In the second quote, we believe DW is suggesting that we attempt many  things. Try, experiment, test the waters, do the new, live adventuresome. Come to think of it...why not? Sounds like more FUN!

That's my view...what say you?

More great things await
