Are you afraid to take a chance?

We all face challenges and setbacks in our lives when taking chances, and some are harder to deal with than others, but what we learn from them is well worth the effort, regardless of the outcome!

My biggest challenge was the day I decided to walk out of my marriage. For so many years I had told myself how I wouldn’t be able to cope on my own, and I really felt for a long time that leaving just wasn’t an option.

One day a lightbulb went on in my head and I realised that if I just take a chance and take charge of my life, then maybe I could finally be happy again.

So that is what I did and it was the biggest life-changing event of my life! It was extremely hard, and I had my ups and downs along the way, but it wasn’t long before I realised that my decision was the right one.

I am now happily married with two beautiful daughters and life is just sensational! :)

I constantly see people in situations they don’t want to be in, but they are afraid to take a chance and do something to change it. Until they are prepared to get out there and do it, then their life will continue on as it always has.

The following saying says it all: If you always do what you’ve always done, you’ll always get what you’ve always got…

If you are faced with a challenge and you’re wondering if you should take a chance, then ask yourself these questions:

1. What is the very worst thing that could happen if things went wrong?

2. How would you handle it if this happened?

3. What positive things could you learn from this situation, regardless of the outcome?

4. What is the very best thing that could happen if there was a positive outcome?

5. What will your life be like if there is a positive outcome?

Speak to a successful entrepreneur for a few minutes and you will realise that they have faced many challenges and setbacks. They’ve taken many chances, some of which may have failed, but they got back up, brushed themself off, and made their next attempt.

That’s what makes the difference between the successful and unsuccessful – the ability to take chances, learn from their mistakes, and get up and try again.

What is the biggest challenge you have ever faced?
