What Do You Say To Taking Chances?
Life is WAAAAYYYY too short to waste a minute of it.
So why not take a chance, try daring new things, challenge yourself, step out of your comfort zone??
What will you loose? Abso-freaking-lutely nothing my friend!
What will you gain? Hmmm… the possibilities are endless and limited only by your imagination and willingness to act.
You’re miserable at your job, hate your boss, co-workers, pay rate etc. Do you want to do something completely different? Maybe take less pay and do something that you love to do?
So do something about it. Start looking for another job, post your resume, network. Nothing will happen unless you take that first step. Okay the grass isn’t always greener….but sometimes we all just need a change.
Have you been unemployed for 6+ months? Do you spend your days sending resumes that get lost in the black hole that is the HR department of any company?
Have you thought about starting your own business? Do you have a skill you are good at? Think long and hard, because everyone has something they can do. Running your own business is not as tough or expensive is you may think. The best part of being an entrepreneur is that you can never be fired or let go. Think about it…..
Do you have a phobia? Afraid of heights? Afraid of the dark? Afraid of being in crowds? Afraid of snakes? How about facing that fear and conquering it? Or at least taming it so you control it, rather than it controlling you? Take baby steps, get help from supportive friends and family and face your fear.
Check out how my friend Mark plans to conquer his fear. Are you freaking kidding me? If he can do this…what’s your excuse. Thought so…..
Is there something you’ve always wanted to do? Travel? Play an instrument? Learn a foreign language, Learn to draw or paint? Climb a mountain? Learn to mountain ski? Water ski? Scuba dive?, Hike the Appalachian Trail? Rock climb? Learn to sail? Bungee jump? Fly a plane? Jump out of one? Take a hot air balloon flight? Run a marathon? Learn to dance? Do a Triathlon?
Well what’s stopping you??
You don’t have to be the best…..
You don’t have to do it well….
You don’t have to win…..
You don’t have to finish….
You can fall flat on your face…..
You will get up, brush yourself off and keep going…
You won’t die….well you might if your chute doesn’t open when you jump out of that perfectly good airplane. But then what’s life without a little adrenaline rush huh??
But what you CAN’T do……is make excuses….and do nothing.
What do I say to taking chances…..I say GO FOR IT…simply GO FOR IT!
