Don’t be afraid to take risks. Being risk adverse limits your life in ways you can’t imagine. It will prevent you from achieving your goals, living a full life, and helping others.
If your goal is to never know heartache, have hard times, fall down, or even stumble then your life will be but a whisper, barely audible in the noise of people living their lives to the fullest. You won’t accomplish the things you desire. You’ll never be the person those around you need you to be. You wont be you.
But, if you risk failure because the rewards of winning are worth more than what the potential failure may cost you, THAT is living. That is how you become the best possible version of yourself.
Being uncomfortable with the idea that you may not succeed at something is where the seeds of growth are planted. The more you push through the zone of being uncomfortable the more growth you experience.
If there is something that gets your heart racing when you think of the potential risks, but you know in your heart that the reward is worth the potential downfall, stop overthinking it and get it done. You can’t live your life in the what ifs, it’s in the what nows that true happiness is found. Chase it.
