Every adrenaline junkie knows the feeling: Heart pounding. Hands trembling. Blood racing. And then all of a sudden—flying. Plunging through the air, 18,000 feet above the earth, clinging to a parachute that could by all means fail.  Or being strapped into a zero-gravity roller coaster and preparing to whirl upside down, again and again. Thrill-seekers crave that rush; they thrive on it.

It’s the excitement. It makes things interesting, keeps you going. When this life is over, you want to be able to look back and say, ‘I lived.’ Life is a daring adventure, or it is nothing.

Great Leaders know all about adrenaline (although they likely don’t know it by name) they simply know that as they’ve traveled their own journeys, they acknowledge the danger and risk in everything they do and weigh that against their motivation to succeed.

These Leaders – Explorers – Visionaries, seldom find success quickly (over night). They use the “How do you eat an elephant?” theory by taking one bite at a time, knowing that with each step forward, they come closer to the goal.

Other people seldom notice these folks until they appear “suddenly” at the TOP, and it is then (and ONLY then) that everyone is AMAZED at their bravery and greatness. These folks take “CALCULATED RISKS” because, for them, mission accomplishment is more important than bravado, heroism, fame, fortune.

So whatever it takes to get that adrenaline pumping in your veins because this is the drug which will keep you alive in a long haul.

  1. Hi Empress,

    Oh, what a great message for my teen bloggers who don’t have the drive to finish. I am going to share this with them tomorrow. If you aren’t excited about that you are doing, how will you get the real purpose of life.

    Thank you,
