We've all taken risks that may have challenged our fears, forced us to change, or dared us to try something new.
There can be emotional risks, like breaking off an engagement, or physical risks, like learning how to rock climb. Both kinds require a certain amount of boldness, trust, and belief in yourself, knowing that everything will be OK afterwards, but most of all, it takes a whole lot of hope that things will be even better than before. For example, you may be nervous to quit your job, but you have hope that following your dream to be a teacher will make you happier. Hope can be a great force to ignite risk taking.
No risk is too small, you always learn something about yourself and overcome a fear. Plus, taking risks builds your confidence and your inner-strength, so you feel more comfortable taking risks in the future.
Some people are born risk takers, and others need to be coaxed or forced into it. Whatever makes you take the risk, whether the outcome was good or bad, it adds to our experience as human beings. So I want to know...
