Life is too short.
We get comfortable. We don’t feel it necessary to change. If things work the way they are, why do we need to change that? The older we get, the less flexible we become, the less willing we are to take risks.
I have found that taking chances always deliver something good. We either get what we never had before, or we learn some really valuable lessons along the way. It forms you. Getting out of my comfort-zone has surprised me every time.
We are human, so we don’t like failing. The thing is, failing once, or twice, or a thousand times is not going to define you. It’s not the end of the world. You’re life didn’t stop. The sun will still rise tomorrow. The birds are still singing. You’re still breathing. The will to stand up again after a “failed attempt” is what will form you into a “seasoned” person (if I can put it that way).
Something about your character changes when you are willing to take chances.
Try something new. Be friendly to someone you don’t know. Go bungee-jumping of a cliff. Compete in that competition that you’ve been dreaming of. Whatever it is, just do it!
You’ll be surprised at everything you can do once you’ve tried it!
Believe in yourself.
Take a chance.
