Due to the risk-averse nature of our society, we place a high value on preventing harm. We guarantee our trips. The cars undergo our crash tests. Our appliances come with extended warranties as standard.
But suppose we protect ourselves from the unknown and try to avoid the inevitable dangers of life. In that case, we will miss out on the exciting journey of living our lives to the fullest possible.
Dr. Ben Carson spent his youth living on the streets of Detroit, where he was considered a high-risk child. As an adult, he has taken significant risks performing difficult procedures on the brain and spinal cord.
Now, as he gives us illuminating examples from his own life, Dr. Carson encourages us to welcome danger into our own lives.
Dr. Carson investigates our society’s obsession with minimizing risk at all costs and the role uncertainty plays in our daily lives in his book “Take the Risk.” Take the Risk guides you through a comprehensive risk analysis, covering the following topics:
- Risk taking in history
- An assessment of the real costs and rewards of risk.
- Learn to evaluate and accept risks.
- Understand how risk reveals your life’s purpose
Dr. Carson’s insights in Take the Risk will help you dispel your fear of risk so you can dream big, aim high, move with confidence, and responsibly reap the benefits of risk-taking. From a man whose life dramatically portrays the connection between significant risks and greater successes, these ideas come from Dr. Carson.
