No risk, pay the cost. Know risk, reap the rewards. In
our risk-avoidance culture, we place a high premium on safety. We insure our
vacations. We check crash tests on cars. We extend the warranties on our
appliances. But by insulating ourselves from the unknown---the risks of
life---we miss the great adventure of living our lives to their full potential.
Ben Carson spent his childhood as an at-risk child on the streets of Detroit,
and today he takes daily risks in performing complex surgeries on the brain and
the spinal cord. Now, offering inspiring personal examples, Dr. Carson invites
us to embrace risk in our own lives. From a man whose life dramatically
portrays the connection between great risks and greater successes, here are
insights that will help you dispel your fear of risk so you can dream big, aim
high, move with confidence, and reap rewards you’ve never imagined.
