I have always loved the story of Jack and Beanstalk. While Jack may have seemed foolish to trade his cow for three magic beans, I’m attracted to his ability to imagine a greater possibility. What a risk-taker he was! To trade certainty for something untested takes courage and openness. You have to be willing to sacrifice what you have relied on. By letting go of the cow’s rope and grasping the magic beans, Jack was saying there’s more to life than what he’d seen.
