Reflections of the Week

Taking Risks!

2012-11-17 08:59 (comments: 0)

The Mindset Paradox: The greatest threat to success is avoiding failure.

Do you recognize these behavioral patterns:

  • You feel you don’t know enough or that you don’t have all the necessary skills yet to “properly” be able to begin with something so you just….wait.
  • You don’t have all the necessary resources and means, so you are reluctant to start.
  • You don’t know which direction you should choose, so you stay where you are, stuck, not moving in any direction at all.

An entrepreneur friend of mine once told me the secret of his successful attitude: “Just do it and learn in the process. Observe what works and learn from your mistakes and then simply try a new way! Ten mistakes that one makes and learns from are worth more than one right decision that is never carried out!”

So now over to you: where aren’t you taking enough risks? Where are you stuck in the rut? What do you need to let go or allow in, in order to move on and to develop?

Where do you simply need to take action first and analyze later?

Feel the courage and the electrifying excitement when you do something that is slightly outside your comfort zone! That’s where the true development happens!

Write about your experiences here in my blog…

Anaïs Nin

 

There are risks and costs to a program of action. But they are far less than the long-range risks and costs of comfortable inaction.
