If you are not willing to risk the usual you will have to settle for the ordinary. (Jim Rohn, late American motivational speaker)

Many people fear taking risks. They want to be sure that the anticipated venture will be safe, secure, and successful. Rohn argues, however, that if you won’t take a risk, you won’t achieve anything extraordinary. Risk-taking, of course, should be preceded by careful study and preparation. Minimize the risk, but don’t settle for the everyday ordinary achievement.

The plans of the diligent lead to profit as surely as haste leads to poverty (Proverbs 21:5).
