The Power of Risk
In The Power of Risk Jim McCormick balances logic, reason and passion as he presents a strategic plan for smart risk taking. His plan gives readers the perspective they need to courageously take hold of every opportunity presented to them. It is the first work I've seen which actually goes beyond gut instinct, and emotional motivation, to help a person move past their perceived risk tolerance when they discover their true risk tolerance.
