When we study people that are exceptional at risk taking, there are some clear functions that take part. There’s two phrases that guide many of them. One is you’ll do whatever it takes. When something matters to you you’ll do whatever it takes. If you think about being a mother or husband or father, or someone you deeply love in your family structure, and there’s a car coming, you would be willing to do whatever it took to save that person that you love. And that level of conviction starts with great clarity. That clarity is the statement that “I love you” as much as you can articulate in words and I will do in my action whatever it takes. – Michael Gervais
