Taking Risks For A Better Life



People always dream of a happy life and achieve their own terms of success. However, most of us cannot accomplish what we want in life. This always leads to the question, “Why?”

It’s because most of us fear taking risks in life. Fear always gets to us before we even take the risk. This is the fear of the unknown. Sometimes to accomplish what we want requires us to get out of our comfort zone and explore the unknown.


Stepping out of our comfort zone can open up different opportunities for us. Exploring the unknown can give us so many life lessons, improve our social skills, see a different culture, etc.


Never forget that the unknown is part of nature. We must keep exploring it to change our perspective in life and get new ideas. Also, never forget that we human beings adapt to our environment. The unknown will never always be the unknown. Once we adapt to this environment, we consider this as our comfort zone.


A simple decision of taking the risk is a choice you must make to improve your life. Once you take the risk, you must do your best. Remember, there will always be doubters who question the choices you make. Don’t allow your environment and social circle to bring you down.


Remember, you only have one life. There are people who settled for not taking risks and are comfortable for what they have. You must do the opposite. They walk with their head down; you must walk with your head up. They go zig, you go zag.


Keep taking risks because you have to. Keep taking risks because life is an adventure. Take risks because you have limited time.


You will encounter failure when you take risks but don’t be afraid. Use those failures as a lesson. After all, life is never perfect.


“The biggest risk is not taking any risk. In a world that’s changing really quickly, the only strategy that is guaranteed to fail is not taking risks.” — Mark Zuckerberg
