To RISE to the next level in life, you must be willing to take a RISK. Every man up there had to climb the ladder of success one step at a time till they get to the very top.
The ladder was designed to aid you in getting to the roof from the floor, but if at every point you’re afraid of taking the next step because you feel the ladder might break, then you won’t rise to the next level.
Life doesn’t open you up unto the next level until you’ve passed the required test. Whereas some levels will only require a little from you in terms of risk, but others will require that you risk ALL you have in order to cross over.
The higher you go, the farther you are from the ground floor and falling at that point will have more negative impact. But if you refuse to take the risk required for the next level, you will remain stuck at your present position.
To RISE, you must take RISKS.
