The Dark Knight Rises opened last night. He’s a brave risk-taker.
But, I’m not a multimillionaire, so I’ll never be like Bruce Wayne.
The Amazing Spiderman opened a few weeks ago. He’s a brave risk-taker.
But, I’m not going to be bit by a radioactive spider, so I’ll never be like Peter Parker.
What kind of hero — what kind of bold, heroic, risk-taker — might you and I become?
Real World Heroes = Risk-Takers
Yesterday I had an hour-long conversation with a university professor who teaches potential risk-takers; she teaches entrepreneurship. It was a fascinating discussion about the challenges of taking great ideas and creating great opportunities.

I take risks.
I do, I take risks.
When you read that you might have thought:
– “What kind of risks?”
– “I take risks too.”
– “Risks? I like playing it safe.”
– “I love risk-takers.”
– “He’s in his forties, he shouldn’t be taking risks.”
– “I used to be a risk-taker, but I’ve gotten burned. Now I play it safer.”
And, if you know me personally you know that I don’t:
– Free-climbing a mountains
– Free-dive for octopus
– Sky dive
I don’t, but I could.
