The movie “Runner Runner” starts with the phrase: “everyone gambles”. Before the short and sharp conversation in the library begins, we get to hear the last introductory phrase: “if you are risking something, you gamble.”
R I S K !
I started wondering what we REALLY RISK nowadays when we make decisions. No matter whether it´s a gambling decision or a decision for change, in life or business, we can´t predict the future. But we can steer towards it, to create it. Still, we risk to lose something which we actually plan to invest.
I sat down and “looked” back into my past, which was just a short while ago. I made a lot of decisions in my life. It was part of a motivational act I truly needed to go on, plus, I admit I had way more gains than losses! Honestly, I risked quite “a lot” of money and time, and sometimes I let go of people. Is that all we risk? Go ahead and watch my short 1 min.- video to get the clear message about: RISK
My message is called “MINT” and this is what I talk about in the video clip from yesterday. We only lose MINT: Money, Ideas/Intellect, Network-partners and Time.
Money equals time! We do have the chance to get back the loss of money …. over time but TIME, never returns. If we have to get back money we double the cost of time we have to invest.
I am curious! Is there something else I forgot? Is there something else we can lose for good when our decision result doesn´t work out the way we “hoped” for?
BTW: any time I make a decision I go out with an expectation. (This is what motivates me!)

BE A DECISION MAKER. BE OUTSTANDING.
