Risk Quotes
(25+ quotes)

Risk quotes encourage wild leaps of faith. All progress requires risk. Some consider risk the four-letter ‘R’ word. Risk can be a red light word or a green light word. What is it for you? 

I’m visualizing green. Green as in ‘go’. All great accomplishments require risk. Go out on a limb. That’s where the ripest fruit is hiding. Risk-free living is a slow death. I love Helen Keller’s “Life is a daring adventure or nothing,” quote. Go for the adventure.

Is there a risk you have been resisting? What’s the worst that can happen if you try it? Remember, there is no way to fail. All odds are rigged in your favor. Take it from two ‘authorities’:  Julia Cameron says, “Leap and the net will appear.” I say, “There is no where to fall but in the arms of grace.” Go for it!
