If you ever want to achieve the life you've always dreamed of, you'll have to start taking positive, calculated risks. It is absolutely necessary to take chances to achieve anything great in life, however many are scared to take the initial leap.
As with any risk, there is always something at stake. Taking risks opens you up to new challenges and opportunities. Push yourself out of your comfort zone. Taking risks empowers you to establish new limits in your mind. We all have boundaries or a comfort zone where we'd like to stay and many have misconstrued visions of what we think we deserve or are capable of accomplishing. When you take risks, you can eradicate that thinking, establish new boundaries, improve your outlook on life and your ability to achieve on high levels.
Taking risks can cause you to become more creative. When you put yourself out on a limb, with a no-excuse approach, your natural problem-solving skills kick in and you're open to new ideas and are willing to try something new.
Bryon Davis, of Live Your Epic Life explains, "An epic life is a life where one chooses to live their own legend and leave a legacy by practicing the 4 pillars of an epic existence!"
He shares on Live Your Epic Life, The 4 Pillars of an epic existence
- Everyday seek to identify and exercise abundance in and through your life. This will lead to an overflow of ideas and opportunities into your life. And when you take action on those ideas and opportunities you will experience wonder, thrill, amazement and adventure.
- Always find ways to add value to everything you do and to everyone you meet. When you focus on adding value profit, influence, and authority will be added to you as natural by-products. There are no exceptions to this rule. The fruit of this truth is available to all. Don’t chase money, create value and money, influence, and authority will begin to chase after you.
- Pursue health in all areas of life (physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual). When you are a good steward of your physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual health joy, happiness, contentment, fortitude, and strength become expressions and experiences in and throughout your life. When you pursue health in these four areas your natural charisma will shine and others will be attracted to you because they crave what (who) you naturally are.
- Be completely present by choosing to DO only ONE thing at a time. When you give up multitasking, and guard your focus your productivity, efficiency, and effectiveness increases and you turbocharge your output causing exponential growth in all of the other benefits above!
When we choose to establish these four pillars in our life we can not help but to elevate ourselves to a whole new level and squeeze the most goodness out of life and change the world around us in the process!
Taking chances requires some blind trust in most cases. Nothing is really guaranteed. However, you have to trust your instincts. Sometimes your gut is leading you down an unknown path but inside you know that something big is on the other side. Go for it, you'll never know what all you can accomplish until you do something you've never done. Take the risk you'll step into some of your biggest rewards.
