Why you should take a risk!

Hello everyone, I’m Jacquie Somerville, welcome to this week’s broadcast of Jacquie Straight Up, the place to be if you want to live a kick-ass life of love, wealth, happiness and freedom. I’m coming to you today from gorgeous Santa Barbara, Ca. I love this place! The views, the vegetation, it is such a beautiful city. I came here to work with my business coach and spend the day with her yesterday and what an amazing day it was. And yes I have coaches because I believe in coaching. And I believe all great coaches have coaches. It’s the key to growth and improvement.

The video today is inspired by a recent speech by Madonna. And one of the things she said that just struck me as being so true was that she said there is no such thing as security except self belief. And I’m paraphrasing I’m not sure if those are the exact words but that was the gist of it. So if you are staying in a dead end job for security, I want to tell you that that it a myth! That job could be taken away from you tomorrow! If you’re staying in a relationship for security, that’s a myth! The relationship could end for any number of reasons tomorrow. So whatever you’re staying in and you’re not loving, because you’re staying in it for security, please consider taking a risk and leaving it! There’s this wonderful quote from Jim Carey’s father and he says something along the lines of you can fail at what you do not like so you might as well go for what you do. And it’s so true right? Why not really go all out, take a risk, and go for what you do want. It matters. It really matters if you want to live a great life.

So that’s what I want to talk to you about today. There is no such thing as security. So please don’t stay stuck in anything for that reason. It is a giant myth! The only security you have is the trust and belief that you have in yourself. If you don’t have that, then that is something to work on and we’ll talk about that in the next episode of Jacquie Straight Up. So I hope you’ve loved the video, and if you have it would be so meaningful to me if you would like it and share it with others. And as always I love to hear from you. Let me know your take on this. Do you believe in yourself? Do you trust yourself? And if not, what questions do you have for me? And where have you realized that security is just a giant myth? Thanks so much for watching and I’ll see you next time on another episode of Jacquie Straight Up- Bye!

    I love this episode Jacquie! I feel so very strongly about this subject because in the beginning of last year I was living my life in fear of loosing something that I didn’t even love and it was all about security. Once I found the strength to break free from that attachment my life started to get better instantly. Thank you for sharing this as it has reminded me of how far I have come. Can’t wait for next week’s episode!

    I love this topic Jacquie because you’re putting out there what I think a lot of us are extremely intimated by. The thought of taking risks especially with something like a job or a relationship can be very very scary. But that’s just our ego right? And I think for the a lot of us it comes down to financial stability more than anything. I’m looking forward to next week’s video as I am definitely one of those people who has a hard time taking risks.

    “Security is a myth!” What truth in those words, now hearing it in the perspective that you presented in your video Jacquie! We all need to work on our self esteem and believe in ourselves, that we CAN move onto better situations in our life! What an inspiring message! Thank you! It’s another quote that will be on a post-it note on my computer at my job….thank you for always inspiring us!

    I agree that one should quit what they don’t love but I struggle with this because one needs to survive
    and changing up what one does takes time and structure, I will soon have a pension and will be doing
    visual art full-time, so for now I’m still teaching art part-time and structuring for the time in ten months when I will be doing more of what I love. The teaching has been great but allows no time for doing my own work, so that’s where I need to take a stand and I think I’m doing it. However, am not jumping off a cliff so to speak but continue to build in new directions.

    And that sounds perfect Polly! The main thing is that you have a plan and a strategy to get you to where you want to be and you are moving in that direction. Huge kudos to you and you are so right, one needs to do these things responsibly! xo

    I loved this episode in particular as I could write a book on this. I won’t do that here but the headlines are:
    1, as a recovering addict I believed that my security could be found in my drugs of choice as they brought oblivion and gave me the illusion of being safe. Wrong! 2, I sought validation, both in the addiction, and a constant need for validation from others. Wrong again! The truth is that validation can come only from within me. Do I need anyone else’s approval to feel okay? No, though this is a learning process for me.
