How do you step from the top of a 100 foot pole?

How do you step from the top of a 100 foot pole?


They say that all things are possible to them that believe. To step from the top of 100 foot pole one must have faith that they will be okay or they must be ready to die. Often life presents us with 100 foot poles and places us in positions where we need to step off.

It is a risk to step of at that height yet we are confronted with risks every single day, some bigger than others. It is a risk to cross or to drive on the road but we do it because we have to.

We have the flight or fight mechanisms built in our bodies naturally for this reason that life is full of risks and mostly risks that we cannot afford not to take. To avoid risks would be the equivalent of not living at all.

It is a risk to start a business, yet it is necessary when starting one is the only way that you can make money and do what you love. It is a risk to study a particular course because you might not get a job when you are done.

Life offers us no guarantees all that we can do is take calculated risks, which will make a difference between crossing the road safely as opposed to being at the top of a 100 foot pole where there is very little chance that you will live if you jump.
