Are you taking advantage of opportunities or taking risks?

There is little difference between risk taking and seeking opportunity

When chances are presented to us we can view them as either opportunities or risks.
You can look at all the rewards you will receive from a successful outcome.
Or you can look at all the potential costs incurred if the outcome is not favorable.
It all depends on your state of mind.
You can be optimistic and look at the good outcomes or pessimistic and linger on the unfavorable ones..
One thing is for certain though, if you never take any risks you will never receive any rewards!
Simon quote
Most of the great breakthroughs in life are achieved by people doing something new or in a different way.
The action is taken even though there is a feeling of dread or uncertainty in the mind.
If you wait until all the risks are removed and it becomes a “sure thing”, the opportunity will most likely have passed you by. Continue reading “Are you taking advantage of opportunities or taking risks?”

Next time you are about to make a purchase, take a moment to ask yourself the motive behind the purchase.
You may be surprised!

Joel Therien and Now Lifestyle

Some Background Information on Now Lifestyle’s Founder

Joel Therien had a thriving career as a personal trainer and he started his second professional career right out of University as a Pulmonary and Cardiac Rehabilitation Specialist at the Montford Hospital in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada.
Although he had an amazing boss, great working colleagues and a pretty good salary of $52,000 a year, Joel wanted more. He wanted to provide a better future for himself and his family.    So… the thought of doing stress testing at a hospital for the next 40 years started to lose its appeal. Hence he quit after eight months into it.
However, at 27 years of age he started to lose his health and became a “medical mystery”, as he likes to refer to his health problem. He had been misdiagnosed with either Lou Gehrig’s disease, multiple sclerosis, or brain cancer. He went from a lean muscular 240 pounds with 7% body fat down to 165 pounds. As a bodybuilder, this deeply concerned him and this is when he turned to the internet to look for answers. Continue reading “Joel Therien and Now Lifestyle”
