TAKE THAT RISK!

WHY SIT HERE AND DIE? -TAKE THAT RISK!

….AS INSPIRED BY ELDER JACOB J. EFFIONG, CEO- JOINT HEIRS RESOURCES, UYO-NIG.

If you ask me about the Key to Succeed, I will advise you to Learn to Fail..

And there were four leprous men at the entering in of the gate: and they said one to another, Why sit we here until we die?  If we say, We will enter into the city, then the famine is in the city, and we shall die there: and if we sit still here, we die also. Now therefore come, and let us fall unto the host of the Syrians: if they save us alive, we shall live; and if they kill us, we shall but die.(2 Kings 7:3-9)

Many may have a negative view of failure, but actually, it can provide an essential tool for building character. Failure makes us stronger and more resilient. People who fail repeatedly develop persistence in the face of difficulties.

Many of life’s greatest achievements require going outside of your comfort zone. Whether it means overcoming shyness to perform onstage, investing money to help your business grow, or putting yourself out there for the chance to find love, some of life’s most rewarding experiences come as a result of taking risks.

“The master has failed more times than the beginner has even tried.” — Stephen McCranie

Take that Risk Today!!!
Take that risk today!!

However, many of us have a difficult time dealing with the uncertainty that goes along with taking risks. A feeling of unease grows out of not knowing the outcome and the fear of potential failure. What if I embarrass myself in front of everyone? What if I lose all the money that I invested? What if I open my heart and get rejected? What if I’m not good enough? Answer that with another “what if”: what if the point of taking risks isn’t the outcome, but the process in and of itself. Through taking risks, we must confront our own fears, and sometimes that leads to failure… But what if that wasn’t such a bad thing after all?

 It is one of the tragedies of life that everyone born of a woman must die. It is also a fact that death has its sting; and everybody wants to go to heaven but, nobody wants to die.  Everybody has a desire to live.  And those of us who deal with the pain of daily living, can somehow, see through our pain that it is better to be in pain and learn to live with the pain, than to be viewed by many and be dead.  And since death is an inevitable appointment that cannot be canceled, we’ve got the rest of our lives to live and a sure appointed time to die.  And since we cannot escape this appointment, let us live while we can and die when we can’t help it.

The Leppers
The Lepers

But in Chapter seven, verse three; you will discover four leprous men at the gate of the city: they were sick and diseased stricken.   By law, if they came within ten feet of another person, they were to cry unclean, unclean, which tells me; not only had they lost their connection with society but also, they had been abandoned, and isolated.  But, according to their story, they never lost their faith. So then, here they are weighing their options in discussion of their demise, their destruction or their end; we have sickness in our bodies, and the end of this is death.  There’s an enemy in the city, and if we go into the city we die.  If the enemy does not Kill us, then, there is a Famine in Samaria and we will starve to death, And if we sit here, we will die.  So then, since we are destined to die anyway, let us die on the way.

Taking risks doesn’t mean succeeding every time, and that’s OK! Taking risks can lead to failure which in turn can help you grow as a person.

Life is short—yet many of us spend time wondering what we should do with our lives, rather than actually going out there and trying. As hockey legend Wayne Gretzky once said, “You miss 100 percent of the shots you don’t take.”

It’s important to actually strike out and follow your heart—even if the odds do not seem to be in your favor. That’s the beauty of life. We never know what can happen unless we take a chance.

The One Thing Risk-Takers Have in Common? Overconfidence

Failure might turn us into better people, but that doesn’t make it any less difficult to take risks. It turns out that building confidence can help in overcoming the fear of risk-taking.

Entrepreneurs must go up against tremendous odds to build a successful business. That means taking big risks without knowing the outcome. What makes them do this? Confidence, and a lot of it.

YOU MUST TAKE THAT RISK, even if the odds do not seem to be in your favor!
