We will discuss how to evaluate reasonable risk and think outside-the-box to create workable solutions.
As usual, we will also discuss two delicious recipes for sharing. The "safe" recipe will be Spinach Ricotta Pasta, and the "adventure" recipe will be Ham and Black-Eyed Peas Stew.
Everyone has a comfort zone, your mental space with boundaries providing emotional security for your life and decisions. What distinguishes successful people from others is what they do with their comfort zone. Some people are perfectly happy in their safety zone, but there are those who constantly push and test their limits. In this competitive, accelerated world, those who are willing to take risks, step out of their comfort zone and into the discomfort of absolute uncertainty will be those who will reap the biggest rewards. Risk taking is engaging in an activity with an uncertain outcome. There are emotional risks such as proposing marriage, asking someone out for a date, or exhibiting your art to the public. Financial risks include starting a new business, investing in the stock market, or gambling. Risk takers tend to be motivated by change, variety, intensity and are often thrill-seekers with a high tolerance for uncertainty. They tend to be self-confident and believe that they control their fate. They are often innovative and creative, and all these positive characteristics make them good entrepreneurs cutting edge inventors, or extreme athletes. Risk-taking also has negative aspects and can be fatal. The greatest risk-takers are adolescent males — reflected in their high rates of car accidents, binge drinking, and drug use. Life is inherently risky, but there is only one risk you should avoid at all costs, and that is the risk of doing nothing. Albert Einstein. Mark Zuckerberg. Donald Trump. Mario Andretti. All risk takers in very different ways, but each set themselves apart and moved far beyond their comfort zones to achieve success. Join Life Coach Jenn A. Nocera and me for a discussion on what it takes to be a risk taker. After the show, check After Hours at Jersey Coastal Live for more info.
The next generation doesn’t have an easy time of it. The number of At Risk Youth is on the rise, Every year more than 700,000 children are abused or neglected, and each day 1,200 children are removed from their families to enter foster care. (American Institutes for Research). In 2000, more than 4 million youth between ages 16-24 were neither working nor in school and 25% are estimated to be parents. Each year, more than 20,000 teens leave the foster-care system with little transitional support. In 1997, 350,000 young men between the ages of 18-24 were inmates in federal and state prisons and local jails. The population of 16-24 year olds is expected to grow at an above-average rate over the next decade and most of the increase will be among blacks, Latinos, and young immigrants.
The fight to give these children a chance, some stability is also a major topic and more people are getting jobs, creating organizations, doing what they can to help the leaders of tomorrow. Tonight we have a special all male panel who will be talking about their experiences with at risk youth.
Trust is important, but it is also dangerous. It is important because it allows us to form relationships with others and to depend on others—for love, for advice, for help with our plumbing, or what have you—especially when we know that no outside force compels them to give us such things. But trust also involves the risk that people we trust will not pull through for us; for, if there were some guarantee that they would pull through, then we would have no need to trust them. In this context, trust is also dangerous. What we risk while trusting is the loss of the things that we entrust to others, including our self-respect, perhaps, which can be shattered by the betrayal of our trust. Tune in this week as Nancy Herold and I discuss how trusting requires: - that we be vulnerable to others (vulnerable to betrayal in particular); - that we think well of others, at least in certain domains; - and that we be optimistic that people are, or at least will be, competent in certain respects. Tonight’s show proposes that ‘at our core’ there is a trust that knows no mistakes, no victims, only lessons and growth. To have a reciprocal relationship with the world around us, trust is the lubricant. Listen in as we discuss that trust and love are the natural states for us to evolve.
