[Risk No. 88] I was playing basketball the other day by myself and there was a guy playing nearby. I wanted to play a game but I hardly ever ask in that situation because Of the fear of rejection and awkwardness if they don’t want to play. Well, I’d been reading your thousand risks and as stupid as it sounds it encouraged me to ask this guy to play! As we talked, I found out he was a recent MTSU grad and was able to really encourage him in pursuing his career dreams and played with him again last night. Ha! I’m not sure what the eternal value in any of this is, but it’s a baby step and encourages me to build up to taking eternal risks.

Note: Risks come in every shape and size – just like people. Thanks for the encouragement, Brad. Take one today!
