If You Don't Take Some Risks...It's Hard to Get the Rewards

Columbia, SC Real Estate

 

 I don't know a single person that has started any business with failing as a large part of their plan. In fact, everyone who has ever started any business has planned the exact opposite. They have planned to succeed and most of them started out with the hopes that they and their business would be wildly successful.

 Unfortunately not all of them are and in the greater scheme of things you are more likely to fall flat on your face than you are to become the next great success story. However, if you fear laying it on the line and throwing all your chips on the table, then chances are you'll never see that wild success that you dream of. At some point you will have to truly take a leap of faith and stop holding back. You have to admire the all or nothing people that have no fear of throwing away the training wheels and running headfirst into the fight.

 Some of the most successful people I have ever known were also some of the largest risk takers I had ever met. In no way, shape, or form do I believe this was by coincidence. If you want to be successful in this life you have to be willing to take the risks that will help you get to where you want to be. Those who create great success usually only do so because they were willing to risk a great failure in the process.

 Not everything you try will work out for you, but chances are you will never know what would or would not work until you are willing to try. Yes, you could fall flat on your face, but you did that much more than you remember when you were learning to walk. You could fall flat, or you could achieve something great, but until you are willing to take the risk, you will never know. And isn't the curiosity killing you?
