Take Risks the Smart Way November 16, 2010

Most of the things we worry about, never happen.  Years of needless worry results in our protecting ourselves and taking less risk.  We simply become so afraid of life that we cannot more forward.  However, if we focus on reducing worry, then we can take more risks and allow ourselves to live outside our “comfort zone.”

Following are three suggestions:

Realize that Life is Not Predictable

All of us will have challenges in life, but usually not the challenges we worried about.  So there is no sense in wasting time creating terrible dramas in our minds about what could happen.  Accept that life will bring challenges and prepare yourself to accept whatever happens. Know that you will be able to cope.

Take Calculated Risks

When you feel drawn to a new project that appears risky, do the research.  Find out all you can about the pros and cons of getting involved in this project. When you have the facts before you,  trust yourself to make a good judgement. Know that you will consider HOW MUCH risk is involved and whether you are in a position to take that risk or not.  If you simply abandon all thoughts of projects that might be risky, before investigating the facts, then you are simply allowing your fears to rule your life. 

Move Outside Your Comfort Zone Gradually

If taking risks is difficult for you, do not invest in a new business, go sky diving, and commit to a new relationship all in the same week.  If you were changing your diet, you would change gradually or else get a stomach ache.  If you are moving outside your comfort zone, go slowing, one day at a time, one risk at a time.

As we learn to take risks, we are able to have experiences in life as never before.  Learning to go outside the comfort zone is worth doing: but be smart as you take risks.
