No Venture, No Gain. How Taking Risks Pays Off
There is only one big risk you should avoid at all costs, and that is the risk of doing nothing.
Great change cannot occur without taking great risks. We take a leap of faith in hopes of extraordinary personal and professional fulfillment. Unfortunately, taking a giant leap means a risk of failure. One can’t help but wonder: Will it be worth it?
Before joining WorldVentures, many Representatives shared struggles of unfulfilled dreams and potential. No venture. No gain. In each case, the need for success became stronger than the fear of failure. This realization brought men and women from 28 markets to WorldVentures. Today, WorldVentures, has become the world’s largest direct seller of group travel, with more than 120,000 independent Representatives worldwide.
Still, people are understandably careful about taking unnecessary risks. Don't be scared to fail. Rather be afraid of not trying. If you make decisions that are well researched and calculated, you will limit the possibility of stumbling.
Venturing into the unknown can contribute to unwanted and unnecessary pressure. Also, if security and stability is what you crave, then perhaps start with smaller more manageable risks.
The truth is: You take risks every day. It could be something as modest as introducing oneself to someone new or something as significant as making a public speech. Often, we take risks without being aware of it. But it's the big risks, the giant leaps, the potentially earth-shattering decisions that not only affect you but also others―that’s where the real reward lies.
So, whether you're negotiating with a future employer, changing careers mid-life, or speaking up and making others aware of your presence, keep doing it, and you may get what you’re seeking.
