Attitudes of Gratitude - March 5, 2015 - Embracing Risk

"In the most basic terms, what we need to do is start acting and risking and failing, and stop mumbling and apologizing and prevaricating.  It isn’t that women don’t have the ability to succeed; it’s that we don’t seem to believe we can succeed, and that stops us from even trying.  Women are so keen to get everything just right that we are terrified of getting something wrong.  But if we don’t take risks, we’ll never reach the next level."  Katty Kay and Claire Shipman in The Confidence Code

Today I am grateful for... mom, who more than anyone else believed in me and taught me that i could believe in myself.

...Kate and Trevor, who believe in me now.

...for my many friends who have supported me through the years regardless of what direction I was moving in.

...for good genes.  

...for not being afraid of failure.

...for the ability to take risks.

...for opportunities to learn and grow.

I am blessed.  You are too.
