Taking the risk sometimes can provide you more security.
My husband and I could not be more polar opposites.
He is practical. He can always think of a reason not to do something. He is a quiet observer and hates going out.
On the flip side, he would describe me as impractical, head in the clouds, doesn’t listen, too active, and a social butterfly.
My version of his description of me would sound like “I’m a go getter”, “I don’t take no for an answer”, and “I’m a creator, and an active participant in life and in love.”
Much better don’t you think?
Either way, we do bring balance to each other. And God, can we make each other laugh. But we also see each other’s potential, even if we are still working on just how far to push each other toward that potential.
We each took a risk on one another, and it has provided us both so much security in so many unexpected ways.
There are other ways that risk taking can ultimately lead to security. My favorite risk is creating passive income. Last week I mentioned Kristen Biggs, and how much of a difference maker she is in my life and in others’. Kristen also believes in the power of risk leading to security. Like me, she is a big proponent of passive income through the acquisition of real estate.
She is an investor in real estate and in business.
The passive income that she earns protects her and her family. She can rest easy knowing she has a cushion to soften the blow in the event that she lose a job, a child goes to college, the family wants to take a vacation, kids play sports – you know, if life happens!
Naturally, you should always do your due diligence when assessing a risk. But don’t let your adversity to risk, or the societal norms of how money is made stop you from excelling beyond those measures.
