Taking risk is one of my fun things to do to see what might happen. For others it's too scary, they would rather do the same old. The problem is for those who do not take some type of risk never get to experience the roller coast ride of highs and lows, or getting to new rungs of the ladder for achieving milestones or feel much reward.
When contemplating a risk, follow the words of Dale Carnegie, ask – "What's the worst that can happen?"
In most instances, the worst isn't all that bad. Obviously I'm not talking about puttling all of your money under the mattress for a burglar to steal. But what if you chose activities that give you knots in your stomach such as trying your hand at writing or speaking on stage? The worst that would happen is that you wouldn't enjoy the experience. However, if you were to seek help ahead of time and implemented the suggestions, you just might see great reward.
The same is true about interviewing. Have you ever had an idea for a particular company but were too afraid to present it? What if you overcame that fear and made the presentation, and to your grand surprise they embrace it – how would that make you feel?
Fear holds us back but taking risk may launch us forward to previously unseen heights. This weekend consider what has been weighing on your mind, and take the time to draft a possible plan of action to move you forward. You just might find your way to a new job or desired client while enjoying the Smooth Sale!
