Life has its ups and downs and for someone who doesn’t learn from those downs he or she will surely have less ups in the long run. But what about taking risks, going for the gold, risking it all and listening to nobody but yourself?
Everyone is after “absolute certainty.” Everyone wants to keep living, avoid pain and get as much pleasure out of life as they can. Taking risks for some people is an elective course in life that they feel can be skipped.
I am here to tell you it’s not the risks but the trust in one’s self that separates the good lives from the great ones.
Do you know why so many people are so negative all the time? Why it is that even your family members will say to you that you can’t or that you will fail if you try?
It’s because they don’t trust and believe that they can do it. So therefore, if you end up being successful, then in their eyes they are the failure.

When I first hit the road I had no backup plan, no safety net and no second thoughts.
It was Randy vs. The Road!
Am I scared? Sometimes.
Do I know what’s going to happen next? Lol. I wish.
Is Road Bandit going to be a success? You bet your sweet ass it will be!
The one thing that I believe separates me from the Joe Shmoes out there hoping for success while still keeping everything easy and safe is this…I will always trust myself to get back up when I fall and my success will come from the belief that I can achieve anything and everything as long as I always trust myself to follow through.
“As soon as you trust yourself, you will know how to live” –Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
