Are You A Risk Taker?

Philippines
July 26, 2016 10:05pm CST
Are you the type of person who prefers security over risk? Have you ever tried going out of your comfort zone and did something you were so scared to do? When you dream and you want to make it happen, you are leaving yourself no option but to take risks. Realizing your wishes and wants practically require you to expect positive results and you would never get it without risking a thing or two. How barave are you when it comes to taking risks?

Ever since I was a kid my father would always compare me to my siblings including my brothers. He said I was a risk-taker and a very adventurous girl. He was right. I'm very courageous in taking risks. But as I grow older and have a family of my own, I tend to lessen taking risks for the sake of my son. That's why I am where I am right now coz I took the risk.

We are on the same boat. When I was still single I could say that I was too brave taking risks but not when I have kids of my own. I have to think hundred times.

@cherigucchi It's different when we become parents. We have to think of them first.

@toniganzon You are completely correct. We just cannot bet on risks to take.

Sometimes I take risks. We will not improve or succeed in our life if we will not take risks sometimes.

@cherigucchi Yeah right. It's better to try than never at all. Many successful people are risk takers.

I am not that brave to be honest. I did do something that is not the norm for me though. I asked someone for a kiss. And I got it. lol

I am taking a calculated risk. I usually risk something that I can afford to lose. :)

@cherigucchi We need that. Because it will give you stress and depression if you lose something that you cannot handle..

For me, it really depends on what the risk is. Some things I can be pretty brash about, while other things I prefer to play it safe with.

That is when I say that we do calculate the risk before taking it.

I like taking risks. For me life means taking risks. Without risk, there is no meaning for pleasure.
