REASONS YOU NEED TO START TAKING MORE RISKS
Start taking more risks: a phrase you hear quite a lot of
times. But what does it really mean? Does it mean you have to go cliff-diving
or chase a thief? No! (in some cases yes, maybe). Taking risks could mean to
take the less traveled road, meaning something that people usually don’t do. It
could be as simple as adding a funny animation in your presentation to
something big like moving from New York to Paris in search of better work.
taking a risk may sound like taking a big risk, here are a few reasons why we
think it’s actually worth it.
1. You Will Be
Introduced To New Opportunities
is often connected with negative results. But the truth is that risk
brings along with it new opportunities to grow and learn. All those people who
have had successful careershave taken risks in their
lives, and look where they are now.
many a time risks don’t yield the expected results but you can surely say that
you have gained an experience from it. Experiences make a person wise. Even
through failure you will learn. If you are still skeptical about it, then think
of risk as an opportunity, something new that no one has tried. If you are
stuck in between two career choices, go for the one that looks rewarding even
if it is risky.
2. Risk-Taking Will
Help You Stand Out From The Crowd
the crowd follows what is easy, if you choose the riskier path, you will stand
out. This helps you get noticed by important people. Those who often take risks
are seen to be confident and intelligent.
will allow you to express your own ideas in a unique way. Instead of following
the proven ways of doing things, you can add that an extra ‘you’ factor in your
work. This means you becoming a leader and not a follower. Taking a risk is
like letting people see how confident you are. When you stand out and get
noticed, people will remember you for important tasks because they know that if
others cannot do it, you surely can!
3. Change Comes
From Taking Risks
so you have completed college and got a degree. You have worked hard at work
and are living life as you should. Everything in your life is good. But you
know what would be wonderful? Taking a risk. All the toiling has got you a good
bank balance so that now you can spend it on yourself. Take a longer-than-usual
break for yourself and go travelling. Go for 3 months, 4 or even 6!
is only one of the so many ways taking to bring change in your life. Not many
people do it, and hence is the route less taken. Because taking risk like this
will let you experience something unknown, it will cause a change. If you
follow the traditional way of doing things, how will there be any scope of
4. Taking Risk Will
Help You To Conquer Your Fear Of Failure
the risky path may lead to a few failures. You cannot expect to get everything
right the first time, but you must not think of your failures as the
destination and stop. Failures lead you to success, not from it. People don’t
take risks because of the fear of failure and that becomes a hindrance in their
paths to success.
see failure to be the opposite of success. But from today we can stop following
the dictionary by heart because failure is like a channel leading to success.
Remember, you only learn to get up if you even fall down.
5. Taking A Risk
Does Not Mean You Have To Do It At The Heat Of The Moment
will, obviously, prepare yourself before you decide on taking the big chance;
you will prepare a list (possibly) of the pros and cons of the risk; you will
be prepared with another solution should you fail; and you will educate
yourself about the new venture you are going to be a part of, which means the
chances of you being in a completely undiscovered place will be less.
a risk in no way means to blindly follow your instincts. Sometimes, you have to
make certain calculations about your new idea instead of coming up with
unrelated thoughts and expecting them to work out only because they are things
people have not done. You may have to plan the risks, too, you know.
6. You Get To Know
taking a risk makes you come across various challenges of life you will learn
about your potential. You will face new challenges everyday and through your
ideas and solutions you will be able to overcome the obstacles. This way you
will get to know what you truly are.
make us more confident: about ourselves as well as about the unknown. The more
risks you take- different kinds of risks- the more you will discover about
yourself. Go ahead and put yourself out there. Don’t fear what you don’t know.
Instead challenge yourself and grow.
7. New Lessons Come
From Taking Risks
from making you realize your potentials, conquering your fear failure and
making you stand out from the crowd, risk is also a way to help you in
self-improvement. You will come across situations when people will pull you
down, don’t listen to them. If you do then you will be missing out on
opportunities for self growth. You will know that people are not always right,
no matter in what position they are, who they are or what they are talking
will not live your life for you, you will. So, why listen to others when you
should be making the choices for yourself? These are the things you will learn
from taking risks, and it will help you in a lot of ways.
8. If You Want It
Big, You Cannot Play It Safe
will not make your life better but it will open new doors for you. If you
really want to see some change, and want to make it big in life, you have to
leave your comfort zone and travel on the risky road. Neither struggle nor ease
is guaranteed on this path. Actually, nothing is guaranteed but experience and
opportunity. You will meet new people, explore new areas and see various
things. Nothing will be like how it was, but it will all be worth it when you
reach your destination.
outside world is unknown and it is scary. But until you reach for more than
what you have, how will you know the limits to what you can have? It is
necessary to take risks because they make us realize our abilities through
which we move towards discovering ourselves, followed by betterment and leading
9. All Risk-Takers
May Not Be Winners, But They All Are Learners
have experience and they have learned something or the other from the risks
that they took. You can look at a risk in so many ways. So, let it motivate you
instead of making you scared, let it make you grow instead, and let it change
you for the better.
are drawbacks to taking risks as well, like after reaching a high point and not
meeting with the desired results, or worse not getting anything in return. So
what? You have taken a big risk and that is worth it. The fact is we are
preparing for the worse that may not even happen. Just think of the journey
that you had and so much that you learned. If not anything, you will be taking
home the trophies of experience with you.
