Right Risk

Book Description

Right risks are courageous, deliberate, life-affirming, and based on a person's principles and values. This manual, both practical-minded and inspirational, shows how "right risks" are those that, regardless of outcome, are always deemed successful because they are taken with a clean conscience and clear calling. The book uses ten principles to help the aspiring risk-taker become more courageous in facing fear, more assertive in confronting others, and more comfortable with the uncomfortable - in short, how to become a more sensible risk-taker without compromising the excitement of doing something new and daring. This book offers strategies for intelligent risk-taking, from a former professional high-diver and corporate workshop leader, and shows how to use one's personal value system to determine whether or not to take a risk.
