We are often afraid of many things. Thanks to our developed physiology, we are capable of seeing ten thousands terrible scenarios down the road before we even try anything new. What an irony! Our brains backfired us and we never take the chance.
Don’t be afraid to take risks! I will not chant on the euphemism of “you never know until you try.” Instead, I would like to offer my rationale on the opportunities coming from taking risks. Unlike the common belief, taking risk should be calculated carefully, so that the consequences will not outweigh the benefits. However, taking risk is often a part of a bigger scheme of successful people, because it provides a reality check of where you are on the route to success. You need to create your own opportunities and earn your own experiences. Taking risk isn’t anything dangerous like fictions often romanticized. Once you understand its logics, it doesn’t sound so embarrassing and scary any more.
