I’ve made many mistakes in my life, even recently. I can be a hazard to myself at times. When screwed up things happen, there’s no one to blame but me. Shouldn’t I be depressed by now that I’ve let myself get into some of the things I have? No way! I like it. Uh, let me explain.
Mistakes are how we learn. I sometimes stumble so hard that when I fall you can hear an echo on the way down. But don’t we all? Isn’t that a part of life? Some days I want to say “Don’t Let Me Get Me” like the P!nk song says (embedded below). But in the end, just like her, I’m going to be me anyway.
I want to fall sometimes because every time I do, when I get back up, I’m so much stronger and wiser for it. Is this a license to misbehave? It may seem that way in some cases, but of course I don’t intentionally mean to do anything to hurt anyone else or myself. I’m just learning and growing like the best of them.
Sometimes I screw up so miserably I just want to crawl into a corner or under my comfy purple blankie to shield myself from the blows. But I’m not going to. I’m going to keep taking risks. I’m going to be a hazard to myself at times and I like it that way.
I’m learning. I’m growing. I’m real and I’m raw and I’m me -- and that’s all I ever want to be.
And I’m betting many of my friends are also hazards to themselves. Aren’t we all at some point?
Ever met someone that will take just about any risk, soar to any height, climb any mountain, and so on? That’s me. From the time I was just a young child, I have always been fascinated with risks, dares, and other such amusements. I’m a daredevil and a risk-taker.
If I can see a benefit to a risk (even if the benefit is just fun), I’m probably taking it. This is very beneficial both in my career, as well as my personal life. In all the risks I’ve taken, I honestly haven’t regretted any of them. Apparently, I choose my risks wisely. For instance, I want to hug a lion, but of course it will be done in the proper environment and not just a random wild one. I’m risky, but not stupid.
I may enjoy the amusement parks more than my children do. Problem is, I haven’t yet found a ride that actually scares me. I just want more and more, so I keep trying. My kids love this side of me because it means more fun for them as well. From amusement parks, to difficult hikes, and other life adventures, we’re a pretty fun family. Most of our adventures are the outdoors type, so it’s great exercise.
If something in my business or personal path scares me, that means I am going to take it as a challenge and risk it. So far, it has served me very well. In fact, the site (and network) you're reading this on came from me taking a big risk. Even if there had been some falls, I would still feel the same. Why? In life, if you don’t take chances, you don’t get results.
I take many chances and reap the reward every time.
Are you a risk-taker and/or a daredevil?
