No one ever gets anywhere if they don’t take a chance.
Take more chances, get further in life.
You’ve heard all of this before.
Take a step.
Leap and the net will appear.
What other Instagram post can I quote here…
But how do you do it?
How do you go about taking chances and what kinds of chances should you take?
People are afraid of taking chances because of that fear. That fear of the unknown. The feeling we create inside of us on events that haven’t even happened yet. The feelings of events that may never happen.
How do you overcome that fear?
Step 1. (because we all love 5 easy steps to…)
You need to believe in the changes that will take place when you take the risk. If you stand strong on your belief, then you will have more faith in the chance and the change. According to Forbes magazine, we over exaggerate (shocker) the risks of failure and under exaggerate the risks of succeeding.
Can we focus on that second part…?
…we under exaggerate the risks of succeeding!
This is what we need to focus on!
This means - many of the chances we are faced with, may actually come out in our favor. That should help you in your journey to take more chances. So, what if you don’t want to do any of this.
No chances, too dangerous.
Then think of this...
When you look back on your life…
Will you wish you took more chances?
Will you wish you took more risks?
Would you wish you accomplished more with your life?
Avoiding risk may keep you safe from certain situations, but it will never push you to that place outside your comfort zone.
That is the place where you will realize your dreams.
