Taking Risks, Choose to Respond, and Some Risk Quotes

"If you don't like what's happening to you now, then it isn't much of a risk to choose to think and respond differently from what you do now."

This quote is also from the current book I am reading, 30 Seconds That Can Change Your Life. Oftentimes, as people we get caught up so vigorously in assessing risk that we forget or even forgo assessing value. If what you're doing today really isn't what you want in your life, then ask yourself: "How risky is it really if I just try one new thing today?"

Additionally, here are some more inspiring risk quotes!
