Get BLASTED Out Of Your Comfort Zone!
Finally, someone has the guts to tell you the BOTTOM LINE TRUTH about what it really takes to become successful ... and get what you want in life.
The question is, do YOU have the guts to hear it? And act on it?
And as soon as read this short letter, you'll know the answer.
"The biggest risk is not taking any risk... In a world that is changing really quickly, the only strategy that is guaranteed to fail is not taking risks."
~Mark Zuckerberg, Founder of Facebook
The Biggest Risk Is Not Taking One
Everything you decide to do in life has a potential to fail. Nothing is ever 100 percent certain so any attempt at anything has a chance of complete failure.
There's always a chance we'll never make it to our destination, a chance we won't get to see our loved ones again, a chance that tomorrow will never come. Life is all about risks – you take some and you avoid others.
But there's ALWAYS A RISK IN NOT TAKING A RISK.
You Don't Ask Because You Might Be Turned Down
... Maybe it's that super-hot chick you see every day at the gym that you'd love to get to know better.
... Maybe it's the raise you know you deserve and is long overdue.
... Maybe it's the bank loan (or friends and family loan) you need to get your new business idea off the ground.
Whatever it is...
If you don't ask, the answer is ALWAYS NO!
You Don't Try Because You Might Make a Mistake
... Maybe you were overly criticized as a child whenever you didn't do things the way others thought they should be done.
... Maybe a failure earlier in life was emotionally painful and made you gun shy about trying anything that has even the slightest chance of failure.
... Maybe you've resorted to being a perfectionist so you don't ever have to fully complete something.
Whatever it is...
If you don't try, you can NEVER SUCCEED!
He Was Broke, With A Baby On The Way, But He Knew He Had To Dare Big To Win Big
With a baby on the way and too little money to pay the rent on his Hollywood apartment, Sylvester Stallone sat down and wrote the screenplay for Rocky in less than four days.
Producers loved it and offered him big bucks to bring the story to life, but Stallone, as down-and-out as he was, refused to take any offer if he wasn’t allowed to play the lead role in the film. His stubborn attitude landed him a far smaller paycheck than what he could have earned for his screenplay, but the risk was well worth the reward: Rocky ultimately ended up pulling in millions of dollars and skyrocketing Sly to fame. (Levo League by Heather Finn)
You may never write a screenplay or act in a movie, but you face risky decisions everyday that could have you coming out on top like Rocky, or languishing in the desert of life.
If You Don’t Dare, You'll Never Know
We often find ourselves wanting to be more daring in our life, but not knowing where or how to start. Or, we simply fear that being daring will cause us pain or heartbreak. These are valid fears, but how will you ever know, if you don’t dare to DO?
Fear will rule you if you allow it to do so. And despite what you may think, there is no easy way around fear. You can’t go around it, above it, below it... you can only go through it. That is, if you want to do something you fear, the only way to not fear it any longer is to... you guessed it... just do it.
Isn’t it better to give it a try and fail, rather than never to know if it could have been achieved? Failure is simply learning how things won’t work. Once you know how they won’t work, you can try again keeping that knowledge in mind, and find ways that it will work! But you’ll never know if you never try.
Perseverance goes hand in hand with being daring. Not all of your daring tries will end up positive. Some will end negatively or at least in ways you didn’t expect. That’s okay. We can never predict the future with any accuracy, so you learn from what you’ve done, and you simply try again. The less we take these failures personally, the more we’re able to see them for what they are - enormous learning experiences!
Have faith that whatever you want to dare to do, you will be successful with. It may take hard work, time, experience, and failure, but if you believe you are capable, there’s nothing you can’t accomplish. Believing in yourself is the first part, and it’s something that doesn’t come easily to lots of people. As you begin to achieve smaller goals, you’ll gain confidence, and that confidence will build momentum. Once you have momentum, you’ll be unstoppable in your pursuit of whatever daring goal you’ve set for yourself.
Don’t listen to people who tell you that you’ll never get there. They are only afraid of their own failures, and when they see you succeeding, it challenges their own comfort level. Never let anyone else tell you how you should live your life or what things you should or shouldn’t do. It’s up to you to make things happen in your life, and by being a bit more daring, you can do it!
What is Risk?
We all know what risk is, right? Of course, we do. We’re familiar with risk because, in one form or another, we all face some type of risk every day. So, asking what risk is, seems to be kind of pointless. Yet, the concept of risk, while simple on the surface, is deeper than it appears at first glance. In other words, there’s more to risk than meets the eye.
Let’s start with the standard definition of risk. In the dictionary, a risk is defined as a chance of loss or a peril. In addition, it is further defined as the person or thing that creates this chance of loss or peril. This means that the very concept of risk contains two separate, yet intertwined ideas – the chance of a negative result, along with the action that made that chance a possibility. This is critical to the understanding of risk.
The key word here is - possibility. A possibility is not a certainty. If something is possible, it may occur. At the same time, it may not occur. This means that the negative result at the heart of a risk, while possible, is by no means certain. Because of this, a positive result is also possible. So, when we define risk, we have to take this fact into account. Any risk also contains a potential reward.
Risk itself is not a negative concept. It is not simply a loss. It is a CHANCE for a loss. That chance may or may not occur. The lower the odds are that the loss will not occur, the higher the odds are that a reward will be the result of undertaking a particular activity. In other words, a risk is a fluid concept set on a sliding scale. At one end is almost certain negative results. On the other end is almost certain positive results. In between is the chance. This means that any specific risk is subjective. The risk itself is defined by both the chance for a negative outcome and the person who is willing to accept the odds that that outcome will not occur.
By way of example, let’s take a look at a very common activity – driving. Every day, untold millions of people use motor vehicles, either as drivers or passengers. Likewise, every day, thousands of people die in motor vehicle accidents. Yet, people still drive. Why? Because the risk of dying is small enough to be acceptable, even though that risk still exists.
Add a Dash of Daring!
We all need to add a little daring to our lives. Here are six great ways to do something daring - have you done one or more of them?
Go Against the Grain
So what if the Joneses next door have three cars and a McMansion? If you’re content in a cabin in the woods and a beater that gets you where you need to go, but you want to spend your money on experiences instead of things, then go for it! It takes real courage to do what you want to do instead of what everyone around you is doing.
Go For It
What do you dream of doing or having? How would your life change if you attained those things? Work relentlessly toward your dreams, whatever they are. Do whatever it takes. And don’t listen to the naysayers. Know you can achieve it, and then go for it!
Learn To Be Alone
Most people don’t like to be alone. When you’re alone, you start thinking, and when you start thinking, your mind can go to some horrible places. But learning to love being in your own company is one of the most courageous things you can do. If you can love being alone, it means that you’re okay with the thinking - that maybe you even welcome it. And that’s a sign of a very healthy, strong mind.
Move Through Fear
The thing you fear doing - that’s the thing you should be doing first. Most fear in our lives is unnecessary. We’re no longer in danger of being eaten by a lion while we are out hunting and gathering. And there is no way around fear. If you want to get over your fear of doing something, the only way to do that is to do what you fear.
You can have a small adventure today, right in the town you live in. Go explore a tourist attraction that you’ve never been to, or search out some history of the town and go look at places from yesteryear that are still around. Learn something. Help somebody. Talk to someone new. Adventures don’t have to be wild and enormous to feel bold and daring.
Ask For Help
It’s a brave thing to realize you need help and reach out for that help. The worst thing that could happen is you get told no. So then you reach out to someone else. No big deal. There is no doubt that whatever you need, there is someone out there willing and able to help you.
