>Humor me for a minute…
I typically gravitate towards people who are risk-takers.
I want to be a risk-taker…trying new things, taking new risks, talking to new people in public places, putting myself constantly on the edge of life. Another way of describing it is that I have an addiction of sorts… I’m addicted to semi-controlled danger. The world is filled with too many critics and not enough contributors… and far to often I’m more of a critic. I want to be a contributer. I want to be a part of a community of people who are starting new things, coming up with new ideas, constantly changing, moving, growing, expanding, shrinking, deciding, advancing. I also want to be that kind of a person.
I want mediocrity to be my only fear. I want to have a greater distaste for missed opportunities than I do for failure.
Risk-takers usually have the best stories to tell.
If there was one risk that you could take this week in order to become a better person, what would it be? A phone call that you need to make? A conversation you’ve been wanting to have? A decision you’ve been putting off? A girl you’ve been wanting to pursue?
Do it. Roll the dice. And tell me your story.
