The Greatest Risk
There are definite risks in thinking big: If your goal is lofty enough to inspire you, there are probably pretty good odds that you may not achieve it; if you share your aspirations, even among your inner circle, you’re providing them with one more piece of evidence that your head is permanently wedged up in the clouds; and finally, if your goal remains unattained, you subtly chip away at the confidence of your most ardent supporter - You!
And yet, the Florentine dreamer admonishes us that in life, as in art, as in lifting - the greatest risk we can ever take is to be content to remain safe!
