A Lesson on Taking Risk
A 5 year old girl and her father went into to the Beach for the weekend, while they were at the beach. Her father asked her to see what the temperature of the water was like… The little girl was glad to help, went to the water’s edge and dipped in a toe.
“I put my feet in and it was cold” she told him
Her Father picked her up and carried her down to the water again, and without any warning, threw her in. She was shocked at first, but then laughed out loud at the trick he played.
“How’s the water?” asked the father
“It’s Lovely,” she replied
“Right, from now on, whenever you want to find out about something, plunge straight in.”
Blogger's Foot Note:
While I was reading this the book slowly in order for me to digest and absorb the wisdom of it’s content. I was stuck at this story. Then suddenly I had flash backs of my past, the things that I always wanted to do with my life but is too scared or carefree.
I know now that the key to success, wisdom and great fortune lies in risking.
