I keep telling myself it’s time to take risks. And then I keep sitting on my ass doing nothing new.
Do you look back in your life and see places where you could have been a little braver or done things differently? I mean, we probably all can find a time that fits this description. We are innately averse to risk. It’s just easier and most people would rather keep their head down and “settle” than speak up and take a chance!
I think part of the problem is confidence. We live in a society where everyone SEEMS so much better than the rest. People look perfect. Their homes look perfect. They SEEM to be able to do it all. But there’s so many different types of people and so many different situations and let’s be real, nothing is ever really as it SEEMS. Nevertheless, we compare and contrast and then think things like “Why would anyone listen to me,” “What if I fail,” and “I can’t do that as they do.”
JUST DO IT
We all have our talents. We are all special. We are all worthwhile human beings.
And we need to make sure to remember that.
WE ALL HAVE WORTH
With regard to my own risks to take, I’m looking to take a few leaps. We as a family have some goals and we are hoping to hit them within the next year. The biggest one is to move. This doesn’t necessarily have to be risky but could be. If you find the right location, but maybe not the right house. Or you find the right house, but maybe not the right location. Both situations could be risky in one way or another.
With regards to risks in occupations, I’m hoping to make a few moves here with my blog. I’m hoping to make a few moves with our side hustles at home. My husband NEEDS to jump in and take a risk with his hustles. He’s got some great ideas, but we just don’t take the leap.
DON’T BE SCARED
Leaping and just jumping in can be really hard. I’m not one to ever preach. I don’t ever want to sound preachy and like I know the answers because believe me, I don’t. We all have struggles and I promise you, I have them just as much as the rest of the world. But with regards to businesses, I’ve always said just do it. Just jump in, and figure it out later. If you wait for everything to be perfect, you will always be waiting.
“You don’t start perfect, but you have to start to perfect.”
So I was thinking after posting about taking risks the other day on Instagram, it might be fun to take on a challenge.
I’m challenging myself, as my first risk, to get in front of the camera more! Since I very much dislike being on camera, this is a huge thing for me but I’m jumping out of my comfort zone and just going to do it. So get ready to see me LIVE and in videos more!
RISKY BUSINESS LIVE CHALLENGE
I was also thinking it might be fun to have some of you join in with me?!
Are you working to grow your online presence?!
Are you looking to break out of your comfort zone?
Are you looking to try something new?
Are you looking to share about something new you have going on?!
Or maybe you just want to challenge yourself to do something you’ve never done before!?
Then this is for you!
So starting May 1st, I’m going to host the Risky Business Live Challenge…
That gives you almost two weeks to get over your fears of going LIVE or getting in front of the camera and join us!
The goal of the challenge will be to get LIVE more often or at least try doing more video on your social media channels!
