Challenging yourself daily is a surefire path to success in all areas of your life. For inspiration, take advantage of Go For Broke Day, which is on April 5. The expression “go for broke” means to go for it, to pursue your dream even when it means you are risking it all! As poet T.S. Elliot famously said, “Only those who risk going too far can possibly find out how far one can go.” Why not force yourself to find out?
The motto “Go for broke,” was adopted by the 442nd Infantry Regiment’s unit from the Hawaiian pidgin phrase used by craps shooters when risking all their money in one roll of the dice. On April 5, 1945, Sadao S. Munemori “saved two of his men at the cost of his own life and did much to clear the path for his company’s victorious advance” near Seravezza, Italy.
