Taking Chances: Why We Will Never Know Unless We Try
We will never know what’s right in front of us if we don’t take chances to get there. As Mark Twain once said, Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines, sail away from safe harbor, catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore, Dream, Discover. These are wise words from one who has lived long enough to see that no risk taken means no rewards gained.
What are the benefits of taking chances?
We all know that taking chances can be risky, but there are a number of benefits to risk. First and foremost, if you don’t take any risks then there will never be anything new. There will never be any change in your life or in the world. Second, as long as we do not take any risks then we will never know how things might have been had we taken the chance. The benefit is that it is always better to learn from experience than to never know at all. Even if our chances fail, we can always say that at least we tried and learned something new. Finally, while it may seem like a lot of people are taking risks and doing well for themselves right now, this is because they took their chance when they could–not when they should have!
