I read the best blog post today and it really made me stop and think.
- What makes a person a risk taker?
- Why are they different?
- How do you become one?
I would not ever classify myself as a risk taker. I have no desire to engage in dangerous activities. I guarantee you will never find me jumping out of airplanes, swimming across the deepest oceans, or climbing Mt. Everest.
But, I really like challenges, change, and being different.
I am not afraid to fail either.
And that, to me, seems to set the risk taker apart from everyone else – they are different, perhaps, because they are not afraid to fail.
This post struck such a chord with me because this week I began a new job – one that I am extremely excited about. A job that is completely different from anything I have ever done before, but one filled with things I love to do the most. I am sure I will share much more about where this job goes and how it grows, but for now I am adrift in the Sea of Unknown and I could not be more excited.
