“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did. So throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbour, and catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover,” – Mark Twain
Taking a risk means to take a bold step in doing what most people dread to do. Many consider risk as the outcome of something negative, but those who desire to climb the ladder of great accomplishments see risk as an avenue to explore their hidden potential.
Risk-taking is one of the important roles that every human must play during their lifetime. It is very important that you take risks to ensure you enjoy a consistent life of progress.
As humans, we take risks one way or the other every day.
If you want to live a good life, then you have no choice than to starting thinking of taking calculated risks
Having said this, the more calculated risk you can take the more your chances of winning.
Please note that seizing great opportunities often come from risk-taking.
More so, you need to realise that the biggest risk is not taking any risk at all.
Taking calculated risks is a display of confidence and helps you stand out in the crowd.
I realize that people who attained the zenith of their career are people who took risks in a time where others left in fear.
We learn from risks — and those lessons may lead us on an important, new path.
Some say times without number that experience is the best teacher because the lesson learnt from an unpleasant experience stays longer in our memory.
Dear reader, be bold enough to take a positive, calculative and beneficial risk.
Do not end this year on regret, rather determine to take that calculated risk towards improving your life and career.
Seneca says and I quote “It’s not because things are difficult that we dare not venture. It’s because we dare not venture that they are difficult.”
Thanks for reading through.
