I believe that success and accomplishments do not come from comfort zones. Throughout the years. I’ve learned to be a risk taker. Sometimes it has been a success but also lots of failures. I’m the type of person who can’t stay still for too long without getting bored or start questioning life. I’m a “doer”. I like to have goals and feel useful.
Being a risk taker makes you have courage to go for it even if you are not sure of the outcome. It makes you bold in what you stand for, and it lets you experiment new talents that you didn’t even know you had, but in today’s world, being comfortable and doing the least you can seems to be the ideal thing. But no, you and I are made for more. We are made to be happy, to love with no conditions, not to get by doing the least we can do. And for this we need to take risks.
So far this has been one of my biggest risks, accepting my faith as a style of life. I mean it’s easy to say I believe in Christ, but it’s different when you’re trying to carry it out with the way you are, the way you talk, dress, and look, everything you do. And yes, it’s a risk every day because you are going against the current, against your pleasures, wants, laziness, and more. And yea I have failed so many times! I get full of myself and at times I lose Jesus within everything that I do and want. It’s ok if you fail at it; we are a Church that believes in a merciful God. That’s what it’s all about; having the courage to take the risk to go against the current. Go against what the world offers you for success. The risk to take a leap of faith and trust in God’s plans. To not only be successful in your profession but to be that and more.
Be a risk taker, just do it!
“Have no fear of moving into the unknown. Simply step out fearlessly knowing that I am with you, therefore no harm can befall you; all is very, very well. Do this in complete faith and confidence.” – Pope John Paul II
