Often there comes a moment which requires us to come out of our comfort zone and take risk, its the way everything works, life will be too boring otherwise, don’t you think? 😛 Also whenever we talk about fear (“darr”) we ourselves or otherwise someone else does remind us that victory lies ahead of the fear. (“Darr ke aage jeet hai mere yaar”). All thanks to Mountain Dew, this notion has been encrypted within us. 😀
4 reasons of why “Fear is a fact and one has to take risks in life to succeed”:
(What risks I have taken and how have they helped me to overcome my fears and claim victory)
1. For the experiences and learning’s involved: Risk always comes with a backup. Even if something backfires, whatever happens will be worth the experience, and will definitely involve learning. Experience and learning is all what matters. I have always encouraged myself to take risk because I love new experiences, as they teach me important lessons. Be it a difficult shot at a crucial point in the game of tennis or doing something which isn’t mainstream, I like taking the risk to experience and learn from the outcome.
“Be brave. Take risks. Nothing can substitute experience.”
2. It shows signs of courage: We all need moments wherein we can feel courageous. Taking risks sometimes makes us feel strong and good about ourselves. Taking a hard decision everyone’s not comfortable with is special and deserves a good feeling. Gives a sense of achievement, a sense of accomplishment. That’s what pushes me. Even if it takes me to go against what’s believed to be normal.
“He who is not courageous enough to take risks will accomplish nothing in life.”
3. Life can be too dull and monotonous otherwise: We all need some fun and adventure in life. Not being interesting is so boring 😛 Risk gives an excuse to be adventurous. Be it bunking a class and going for a movie (yeah, it involves good amount of risk, you see :P) or just pulling off an all nighter with friends, when life gets boring, take risk, do something different, go one step ahead, beyond the shore and make yourself happy.
“The biggest risk is not taking any risk. In a world that changing really quickly, the only strategy that is guaranteed to fail is not taking risks.”
4. It isn’t really a victory if there’s no risk involved: The essence of the victory comes with the price of the risk. The feel of being victorious is incomplete if there isn’t much of a risk involved. It’s what the law of economics also says. A more risk tolerant person has a higher probability of winning the price. 😀 That’s where the challenge lies and that is what gives me a boost to be risk tolerant.
“If you take no risks, you will suffer no defeats. But if you take no risks, you win no victories.”
