“Ignorance is not bliss. Ignorance is pain.” -Tony Robbins
While risk comes from not knowing what we are doing, WE HAVE TO TRY THINGS OUT AND EXPERIMENT WITH LIFE to learn how to better do things. Life takes practice, and to live is to risk it all.
The concept of, “Minimizing Risk,” was given to me by a Physical Therapist. She explained how it is important for all of us to remember to do things every day to minimize risk, just as it is also important NOT to do some things every day which will put our minds, bodies, and health at risk.
It is true in every area of life. Finances, spirituality, emotions, our social standing, intelligence and personality-there are things we can do to minimize risk. As we minimize risk, the possibility of opportunities for benefits increase exponentially.
Working out, walking, swimming, adhering to a daily morning routine, insisting upon a consistent sleep schedule, eating well, and meditating daily are all excellent ways to minimize risks and increase benefits.
As we learn from our “mistakes,” and from the “mistakes” of OTHERS through experimenting with life and learning through experiences, we learn what NOT to do NEXT time. WE CONTINUOUSLY LEARN HOW TO BE BETTER CREATORS, ALWAYS PROJECTING A MORE ENJOYABLE PERSONAL REALITY THAT CONTRIBUTES GREATLY TO THE COLLECTIVE REALITY.
As we consistently work towards doing all we can to optimize our life experience, IN EVERY WAY, and practice doing this consistently, these things compound, and every good thing in our life increases.
What are things you can do, or things you can automate, implement, adopt, or put into place, in order to minimize risk in ALL areas of your life, and increase the possibility of benefits? Boundaries, rules, schedules, routines, rituals, tips, tricks, life hacks, beliefs, personal philosophies, experiences, upgrading programming, up-leveling perspectives, and learning, are a few ways we minimize risk. What are some yours?
Today I will think about, and write down a list of, how I am currently minimizing risk in my life. Then I will think about, and write down, what I can do to improve upon what I am already doing, and create an even more beneficial, optimal, and enjoyable life for myself and for those around me.
The book, THE COMPOUND EFFECT, by Darren Hardy, is an incredible tool to use. I highly recommend buying it, and reading or listening to it often.
Often, it is easy to find a free version of the audio copy of the book on YouTube.
Another great book comes to us through the late Jim Rohn. It is called, 7 Strategies for Wealth and Happiness.
Two of my favorite books to use for upgrading HABITS are ATOMIC HABITS, by James Clear, and THE POWER OF HABIT, by Charles Duhigg.

Please pay it forward, and share this, and ANY message, which may empower someone you love or may care about. It is through adding value to others by sharing and spreading wisdom, that we become more valuable as individuals, and collectively, as a whole, we all become wiser.
Remember: Mindset matters. Character counts. That which we choose to consistently focus on is what EXPANDS in our lives. WE CREATE our realities.
