BIG THRILLS AWAIT THE RISK TAKERS

I love stories when big risks garner big rewards. They brighten the spirit, inspire others and dramatize the “possibilities” of life. Some stories like Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak creating Apple in their garage are dramatic and impact society in significant ways. Others may be less significant but are still fun to share.

I am blessed with some colorful friends and fraternity brothers. One of them is Larry whom I’ll soon be sailing with in St. Lucia along with three other mighty sailing men. Besides being the single best story teller I’ve ever met, Larry lives life large and has an easy going philosophy of life.

Here’s a short tale that will give you some idea why he’s simply a joy to be around. If you like this one, don’t worry there are more.

You define the moment or the moment defines you. – Kevin Costner in Tin Cup

I have a story from my college days that takes a lighthearted look at optimism in action. I hope you enjoy it.
