Was there a moment in your life when you jumped ahead of the crowd, eased out of your comfort zone and, with terminal dry mouth, took a bit of a punt?
What did people say? That you're crazy? Well, any crazies out there looking for risk?
Risks present themselves each day if not each moment. A little push each time is just what you need. The results can be surprising.
Risks are not necessarily good but far too many people think they are necessarily bad and end up missing every opportunity. You might fail or look silly or be noticed!
Risk avoidance is an international mantra that seems to be part of our genetic structure. However, most of the time, risk and success are the same distance and if you can’t travel to risk, you sure can’t get to success.
So, take some courage. Here are some help:
Learn from their experience. If you can get hold of them, discuss these with them and ask how they would handle these when put in the same situation.
Read Richard Branson’s “Screw it. Just Do It” and learn about risk taking.
As you keep taking risks and pushing your self, you build up your inner resources to take on challenges and you become more capable of handling bigger responsibilities. Success awards you greater confidence. You can take on the world. The only difference between a rut and the grave is the depth!
