Taking Chances: Old ways won’t open new doors

Will Campbell

Posted on August 08 2014

One of the hardest things to do in life is to step outside of your comfort zone, and take a chance. It’s definitely easier to be set in your ways, and do only what makes you comfortable. But life experiences are what shape you as you continue to learn and grow as a person. New experiences can inspire you to take paths that you never imagined, opening you up to a whole new world of possibilities. If you never take a chance, you can never get to somewhere new.

We aren't necessarily talking about life-threatening risks that require you to sign some kind of liability waiver before-hand, but the small everyday risks that you avoid taking. Like introducing yourself to someone new, trying a new food, or interviewing for a job that you convinced yourself you couldn't get. Doing anything that scares you is taking a risk.

Big risks are also important for making real progress and being fulfilled. Following a seemingly impossible dream takes a lot of courage, and starting over to do it takes even more. But whether you get there or not, you will be glad that you put everything that you had into trying. That in itself is worth it.

Of course you can get by in life just fine without ever taking a chance, but that’s how you get the best stories!

Until next time,

    I like routine. I like having things planned so when the unexpected happens it doesn’t derail everything. There has been many things that have changed in the last couple of years that I have had to roll with. Not knowing……is out of my comfort zone. If there is a will there is a way. I tend to find the way so it can be doable, but I think that is just my control freak coming out. So I have jumped into a new opportunity which is TOTALLY out of my comfort zone. There will not only be financial achievements, but the personal growth will be monumental. Sometimes you just have to get out of your own way.
