Step Up the Stairs

'The Daily Dose' By Matt Potts

“Vision is not enough. It must be combined with venture. It is not enough to stare up the steps; we must also step up the stairs” Vaclac Havel

Let’s keep this simple today.

I would like to ask you all a very important question.

Does the vision for your life match your overall venture?

Let me explain.

Venture is defined as this:

“a risky or daring journey or undertaking.”

You see it’s not enough to just dream big. If we don’t match that with the required capacity to risk then it’s ultimately a very fruitless exercise.

Please, don’t be like this.

Your grandest adventures in life were not meant to be lived through…



Video games.



People are happy to live out their greatest ventures in life through other people. They weren’t willing to take on the risk to do it themselves.

You’re not going to be like this.

The people I work with learn that their greatest life is worth risking it all for.

As I shared at my Grandfathers funeral, this clarity came over me….

Life is too short, Risk it all, you have nothing to lose. Be brave to live the life of your dreams.

You’ll carve out your destiny. You’ll run your race well.

You’ll become the person of your grandest dreams.

This is a calling worthy of your life. This is worth risking it all for.
