How To Take Risks

Friends, followers, and readers..lately I’ve been thinking about the people & things who inspire me most in life. I look up to those who choose to not only surround themselves with positivity and love but more importantly individuals who choose their path to success, creativity, and goals over anything else. I just adore passionate people. Even if those people are passionate about the silliest and most far out of dreams, I’m incredibly fond of ambition.

“Be thankful for what you have, be fearless for what you want”

I bring this up today because I’ve been struggling with where I see myself in the future. The next coming weeks, months, and years are still so scary to identify as a mystery. Many things will be changing soon and I’m nervous as to what the consequences or successes will be once my decisions are finalized. Will I let people down? Is this really where I’m meant to be? So many questions!

I have always been one who takes risks and works hard. Yet, at times, I feel like my strategies to making things happen often gets skewed. I procrastinate a lot, forget details, and rush myself. Most days, I spend ungodly amounts of time worrying about others rather than myself. I worry about what they may think of me or rather how they’ll react to my accomplishments and failures. I lose focus of what my ending intentions are and think more about if what I’m doing now, is perfect. It’s probably a very unhealthy way to live, if I’m being honest.

I’m working on that though and find comfort when I recognize many influential people go through the same struggle. It’s hard now but I’m sure things will get better. That’s always been my motto. Persistence.

“Stop being afraid of what could go wrong and think of what could go right”

Anyways, I’m rambling now and just wanted to hop on to say hello or I guess just document how I’m feeling in this exact moment. Let me know below if you guys ever feel stuck like I do now. How did you move forward? Leave me a comment so we can chat – see you guys in a few days with another post!

  1. Years ago I was a fly-under-the-radar kind of individual contributor at a large company. After a layoff I bought and ran my own business and failed to make a profit. However, I can honestly calculate a return on that risk because the experience changed me so much. Not just a personal return – what I learned from it actually gave me more options and ability to earn money. My comfort zone wasn’t such a comfortable place after all.

    1. I’m glad that all worked out for you! Even a failure can be considered a win! Sometimes staying in a comfort zone will hold you back and keep you from realizing your true potential. Rarely good things come from it! Thanks for reading πŸ’œ
