Everybody talks about taking risks these days. Hell, I have “Risk Without Regret” tattooed across my chest.
When you really think about it, there are really only two outcomes when you take a risk: success or failure.
Risk isn’t always tied to money, but I think the majority of the time, money is involved. If money was removed from the equation, would that big risk you’re about to take really be risky? If you knew you weren’t going to lose money, would you go for it?
Honestly, I never thought I’d be writing a post like this. I actually debated even writing this at all. It’s taken me at least 10 hours to get all of my thoughts down and edit it.
I’ve heard of other people doing this, and I just knew it wasn’t for me. I always told myself I could probably do it, just to prove a point. I just figured I would never stick with it long term.
But for whatever reason, something just clicked, and I decided to give it a try. So what am I even talking about? Well, just over 7 weeks ago, I decided to give up all meat and dairy products.
If you tell someone they have to spend $10,000 on something that will make them more successful, they will freak out and likely be extremely skeptical, and probably think you and/or the product/service is a scam.
But if you tell them they will profit $100,000 within 3 months after investing that $10,000, with a 100% guarantee that it will work, obviously everyone would do it, right?
Have you ever booked a random flight that leaves 8 hours from now?
How about eating Chipotle eight times in one week?
What about staying up til 8am because you couldn’t stop working on a new project?
Or running a 5K race in -20 degree weather?
These are just a few past experiences that popped into my head while writing this. I read through those things and nothing stands out as ridiculous or crazy. But that’s just me.
