Risk. It’s something that a stock broker like me didn’t really love hearing about.
Well, we have a bittersweet relationship.
Risk meant that I would lose some to get some. Sometimes, I would just lose. But it’s better to know what you’re losing rather than being blindsided by things beyond your control.
In life, we don’t want to risk. It’s difficult to endanger yourself. But often, the excitement of life is found in taking these huge risks.
Paves The Way For Change
If anything, risk introduces a new possibility in your life.
Imagine a balanced number of balls on a pillar. These balls are perfectly aligned in weight, width and size so as nothing would fall and everything stays in place.
Now you introduce an uncalculated object on this pillar and everything topples. But the uncalculated object may or may not remain.
Countless new possibilities can be created on the pillar instead.
It’s a way of trying something new.
Treat the entire body as a muscle.
Now that you’ve got the idea, risk introduces something you couldn’t calculate and you would need to improvise.
This helps you become a better adapter rather than a planner.
Planners may not fail, but adapters absolutely know how to get themselves out of situations.
In a way, this re-energises your innermost soul and understanding of solution-finding.
As you grown in skill taking more and resolving risks to your advantage, you grow your own potential and become a better person.
You learn more about yourself, your capabilities and your mind. Quickly, you open up new possibilities achievable in the near future.
