Have you ever heard of the saying, "life begins outside of your comfort zone"? In other words, you know that feeling when you get flushed, your heart feels like it's going to burst out of your chest & you have a sick feeling in your stomach? That's the moment when the magic is suppose to happen. Couldn't think of anything worse than going through that pain? You're not the only one.
Taking risks doesn't always come easy & if you are anything like me you will love nothing more than analysing every detail before everything that you do. Here's a few tips to help you start taking risks.
It Teaches You To Keep Going
Growing up risks petrified me. I was a pretty optimistic child but nothing sat more comfortably with me than playing things safe. Or, it did for a while. But taking risks lets you adapt to change & shake things up instead of getting stuck in a rut & being comfortable, which can open you up to all kinds of opportunities.
The More Risks, The Better You Get
The more risks you take, the better you get at taking them. The first risk will get the ball rolling & then before you know it that start becoming second nature. Leaving my quiet, settled little life for taking more risks & uncertainty taught me the good that taking a risk can do.
What Have I Got To Lose?
Nothing is so bad that it cannot be fixed & although it isn't always easy to believe, it's true. Why not take the risk? If it doesn't work out the way you had hoped then that's life. You can work on fixing the problem but you can't erase the feeling of wishing you had taken a chance.
So take the risk, it might just be the best thing you ever do!
