Most small businesses or organizations are plagued with an overly cautious, risk adverse aura and desire a secure and safe outcome, all the time? Successful brands will not be found sanitizing their existence through political correctness and warning labels, in fact a check of their culture will reveal a learned behavior and take to embrace and take risks often. There are other benefits to taking risks.
Develops self-confidence and resilience
Taking a risk does not automatically ensure success. The fact is we often have to go through failure in order to reach success. Taking risks enhances our self-confidence in our abilities and cultivates our strengths but more importantly we develop resilience. Resilience is the quality that puts us back on the bicycle after we have fallen.
Risk reduces the hold fear has over us.
The greatest enemy of risk is fear or resistance. When do we take risk it reduces the stranglehold that fear has over us and our natural courage strengthened.
Teaches great lessons
You can receive great advice and you have keen observation skills but it is not until you try something for yourself that you learn your personal lesson that you can say you truly know. For it is the life lessons that we remember. The greatest lessons of our lives have come through taking risks. These lessons become a part of our life wisdom and continue to guide and inform us daily.
Risk opens up new possibilities
Not taking risks makes us immobile and stagnant. It is not until we set creation in motion with risk that new opportunities and possibilities avail themselves to us.
Leads to rewards
We all know people who seem to be so lucky and great things “just happen” for them. If you look carefully things are not just happening for them, they are taking risks and reaping the rewards.
