Feb 1, 2010 - What is your idea of risk? When is the last time you took a risk? Was it yesterday, last week, a year ago, or you cannot remember? If you were once a risk taker, and now find yourself hesitant to take risks, ask yourself why? Are you afraid you will lose what you have worked hard to achieve? Are you concerned you simply do not have the energy? As a high achiever, risks are a natural means to getting where you ultimately strive to be.
Take an MM&I Moment to assess your willingness to take risks. What is causing you to be more cautious? How are you measuring and weighing your options to confirm it is a more calculated risk? What was most gratifying in risks you have taken previously when you succeeded? Use these questions to guide you into risk taking. Chances are, you will wonder why you were being so hesitant in the first place.
