Risk Taker:

I’ve learned that my risk-taking days are over, well so I thought. Why don’t I take the risk anymore? What am I really afraid of? When I was younger I would take a risk in a heartbeat but now I’m more cautious. I want to take my time and think about it before I do it. But to be honest, when I took a risk I made fewer mistakes and I felt more alive and happy. The more that I ponder on the situation the more it stressed me out. I’ve heard people say that the ones who take risks don’t know what they want to do in life. But I don’t believe that. For one if I didn’t take a risk with this blog I wouldn’t have the confidence to write my books. There is nothing wrong with weighing your options, but there is nothing wrong with taking a risk either. Yes, I have taken a risk that didn’t pan out and that was okay because it was a learning lesson. So starting now I’m going to get back to taking a risk. Are you a risk-taker?

  1. I don’t know if I’d consider myself a “risk-taker” all-around. I’m definitely up for challenging myself and trying new things that I may fail at – but when it comes to risks to my physical person, I am definitely NOT a risk taker! I don’t like physically hurting so when it comes to bungee jumping and the like, I’m okay with those things never being checked off of my bucket list 🙂

  2. If we never try then we will never know whether something will work or not. This is how I feel when I try something that doesn’t work. Then I use wisdom from the lessons learned in the next situation to help me make better choices. For me, it’s better to know that something didn’t work, then to spend my life guessing. Good blog.

  3. I’m definitely not a risk-taker, although I’m trying to move a little closer to it. I like to stay safe and quiet, but I also have dreams that will never happen if I don’t take the risk of trying to reach for them. It’s scary knowing I might reach and fail, but I also know that the only way I can guarantee failure is to never reach at all.
