Learn to be More Comfortable Taking Risks!
They laughed when I said I could fly gliders
and not be reckless...
I went on to get my commercial sailplane license... and even to fly more
than 400 Kilometers in a single powerless sailplane flight. On a different
glider flight, I climbed to an altitude of more than 25,000 feet, all
without an engine (other than the powered tow- plane that launched me on
these adventures). And while there was certainly risk involved in this
piloting, it was never reckless.
Iíve intensively coached more than 500
different people since 1994 here at empowercoach.com. Iíve noticed that
people are really shut down in their lives when it comes to facing risk. For
most people, lifeís daily challenges LIVE like they are glider flights to
25,000 feet. But the irony is that we get extensive training and safety
equipment when flying airplanes.... and minimal training at best when it
comes to facing everyday risks... like speaking-up for what we need and
want... and taking a stand as leaders in our daily lives. Thatís why Iíve
created this audio program, ďRisk Mastery for the Risk-Averse; 10 Simple
Ways to be an Everyday Risk Taker.Ē Finally, hereís useful information
anyone can use to be more comfortable taking risks in their everyday
routine, without ever getting into a glider.
These six audio disks feature
more than six hours of tips and techniques that show anyone how they can be
more comfortable facing risk. Listen-in to real world discussions about how
everyday people face risk in their daily lives. Here's an excerpt from Risk
the risk I took when I threw out the first pitch at a major league baseball

program focuses on the rich arenas of everyday life that matter most. Almost
anyone can be a thrill seeker for a day. Perhaps you have the courage to try
a parachute jump, where a professional will guide you out of the airplane
and deploy the chute to take you safely to the ground. Or maybe you are a
courageous rollercoaster rider, seeking the biggest and best thrill. Iíve
got nothing against these endeavors, but frankly, Iím much more interested
in supporting you to take risks in your daily routine. Most people shirk at
the opportunity to take a leadership role in a day at the office. Most
people settle for the status quo in relationships, careers and creativity.
Join me in this audio program as we explore what makes people unstoppable in
their everyday routines... and what it takes to be a risk taker in everyday
95% of the clients Iíve coached in more than 3000 coaching sessions
are everyday people with 9-5 jobs, families and mortgages. These are the
people who have shown me that risk training is needed on a basic, everyday
level. And on this six CD audio series, youíll also hear those coaching
clients tell their stories about risks theyíve taken in their everyday
routine. On disk # 6, ďRisk in Action,Ē youíll meet the following coaching

past and are now energizing and fun

Perhaps Brian says it best... heís a professional airline pilot who has
been routinely flying 737s around North and South America for the last 10
years. In one audio clip, he tells us about his uneventful flying
career... and that the biggest risk he ever faced was in a freak accident
that had nothing to do with flying airplanes!
On Disk #3, youíll meet
another airline pilot who has actually faced a number of in-flight
emergencies. Here's a clip from that disk, in which she shares the story of the day the MD-80 she was captaining
filled-up with smoke shortly after take off... and how she reacted to
safely get the aircraft back on the ground:
On this disk, you'll also hear Susan explain the even greater risks she faced as a woman climbing
the aviation ladder in a male-dominated industry.

The messages in this audio program were driven home recently, when, on a
casual walk through our neighborhood, Leslie and I were held up at
gunpoint. I had ridden home on my motorcycle just hours before, clad in
safety equipment and focused on precise riding to minimize risk... and
while simply strolling just one-half mile from our home, a man held a semi
automatic pistol to my chest, demanding money and putting me closer to
death than ever before. Youíll hear the story of what happened next... and
how I took the risk to appear in the local newspaper and on TV one week
later, to invite residents to a block watch rally to end local gun
Youíll also hear the story about how I left my family business, Archie
Comics, and left abundant financial security (and my inheritance) to start
my own business. On disk #1, I share what it took to walk away from the
family business that I would have otherwise owned.
