Betting on Reinvention

Reinvention is a gamble.  In fact, Daniel Dravot, professional blackjack player says, “I sold my hotel business. Due to partnership problems, I did not have enough money to retire. I had to be creative.

An old passion of mine was blackjack. I went to my bookshelf and started to reread all the books on card counting. I read them this time with the intent of taking 5,000 dollars and testing my mettle.

Five years later, I make over six figures a year. I travel with my wife and we see the great sites all over America. I wrote a book and made a DVD… They are both best sellers on Amazon.”

Only through repeated trial and error do you learn and grow. With failure comes growth, but only if you are open to learning from your failures.

It is a risky business.   Are you willing to make the gamble?
