What’s on the edge of your T-Shirt?
’If you are not living on the edge, then you are already taking too much space.”
It was a memorable day for me when my teenage son walked into the room with this cryptic statement emblazoned across his T-shirt.
At the time, I can remember wondering if the teenage years were going to be the death of me, or the death of him!
Looking back now, however, I wouldn’t trade any of the years with my children, teenage or otherwise, because of the tremendous joy they’ve brought me, not to mention the learning experience it’s been for me to view the world through their eyes.
In essence, though, our teenage years are really all about “living on the edge”, learning how to make your way through the world; building relationships, and heartily enjoying as much of your time as possible, while contemplating that burning question, “What will I do for the rest of my life?”
To me, taking the risk, that’s “living on the edge”, committing to make a difference with your life, IN your life, and in the lives of the many others you encounter.
As an entrepreneur, by the same token, the risks you take to propel your business to the next level, that’s YOUR version of “living on the edge”, committing to use your knowledge, talents and expertise to make a positive difference in the world.
John H. Johnson says, “I believe that living on the edge, living in and through your fear, is the summit of life, and that people who refuse to take that dare condemn themselves to a life of living death.”
