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?
