Life is made up of different risks.
Only it is up to us if we want to take those risks or not. No one knows what will happen when a risk is taken and when the unknown is dared. The outcome could be in your favor or the exact opposite of what you want to happen.
That is the beauty of it. You discover what is out there. Most importantly, you find out who you are, what you are capable and what you are willing to do to make things happen and to achieve your dreams.
Did you know that the thing people regret more than failure is not taking risks? Everyone fails, but not everyone dares to take risks. Whether one takes risks or not, big or small, at some point in life, you will fail—it is the nature of life. It cannot be changed, only the reaction to it may be modified.
Take risks even when you are scared. The best of the bests are afraid, just like you are, but they take risks anyway. They would rather play the game than lose by default. They know that if they do not do what they think they should, despite the uncertainty, they will regret it.
The risks they take are always better than not trying at all. There are no questions of “what ifs” and “could have beens. There will be no wonderings of what may have happened. They have done what they can and what they thought was best. There will be no reason to look back with regret, only memories knowing they did things others were afraid to do, and they are proud not only of what they have achieved but of what they have become.
Don’t be afraid of the unknown. Welcome it and live life. Enjoy each moment and focus on the positive. Don’t regret. Take risks instead. You deserve so much more than what you are willing to do, take and achieve.
