Risk? What if you fail? Ah! But what if you don’t?

Every single day we are faced with choices in our lives. Decisions that fork in the road. One is safe, although nothing is certain in life, you can pretty much guarantee where you are going to end up whilst the other is clouded in mystery and possibility. The second route scares us, makes us doubt every aspect of the person we are and often ensures we take the safer route. But why?

Fear is the main reason. Losing what you have, things not working out and the thought that all you tried just failed to materialize the way you expected it. I have been down the mystery path many times, most of which have rarely been what I expected or planned for. None, so far, have been the path to my dreams. Or so I thought. Because I have always thought that the path I walk must be the way I see it for things to work out the way I wanted. When in fact the troubled paths I have walked throughout my years have each carved a new aspect to the person I am, and looking back I can see the path very clearly.

So plan all you want but never fear things not working out the way you imagined. Life will have a way of giving you the lessons you need rather than the ones you think you should experience. But most importantly, never fear the risky path, it may very well not be what you are expecting, it may well give you the feeling that you made a mistake. But I am a firm believer that every experience you have along the way will get you a better person, one way or another. What you will achieve from taking a risk every now and then is not about success in the materialistic view, but rather what you feel inside of yourself, and that alone, is worth a risk.

      (¸.•´ (¸.•` ¤ This really woke me up. Thank you for sharing this with us today. I agree with you. Lots of people make mistake and don’t realize it. Then they wonder why others are successful and not them.
      It’s unfortunate, but I am someone who is extremely afraid of failing…after two failed marriages, I doubt I will ever walk that aisle again. You are really good at helping me stay on track with your posts. This one gave me a reality check.

  2. I believe you are so correct…our decisions should never be about money or material things…for they are fleeting and disappear…I’ve made many choices which have left me financially poorer but so much richer in the things that count…those choices are a risk but as you wrote…more than worth it in the end. 🙂 That’s so much for your gentle words of truth. 🙂 My fav pix are: 1st in 1st row; 3rd in 3rd row; 1st and 3rd in 6th row. 🙂

  3. Wonderful post. I agree and I realize this more with each passing day. I’m no longer who I once was, I’m no longer the person I used to be, for I am better and wiser because of who I am. 🙂
