All successful people take risks in their life
There is no growth where there is no risk
Entrepreneurial ventures, by nature, are risky
“The biggest risk is not taking any risk… In a world that’s changing really quickly, the only strategy that is guaranteed to fail is not taking risks.”
So how do you overcome your fear of risk?
It is natural to be afraid or risk
Here are two things you can do to overcome this fear:
1) See your risks as INVESTMENTS
Instead of just looking at what you could potentially lose, look at what you can GAIN from your risk
Keep your eyes on the prize instead of looking around at all the potential problems
2) Take risks, not gambles
There is a HUGE difference between taking risks and gambling
It makes me cringe when I watch Shark Tank and see people who have three mortgages out on their house because they were “all in”
Successful people take CALCULATED risks
They don’t risk TOO much, and they don’t risk it until they have done the calculations and the research to see back up that their investment will pay off
What risks do you need to take in your business, that you have been too afraid to take up until now?
