Here’s what I mean…you can’t experience great success without great risk. It’s impossible to have one without the other.

This is something that might make some of you feel uncomfortable, but it’s an important topic that cannot be ignored: risk.

What exactly does it mean for risk to be related to success? It means that in order to achieve great success, you have to be willing to take great risks.

Let’s think about some of the most successful people in the world. Whether they are entrepreneurs, artists, athletes, or politicians, one thing they all have in common is that they took risks. They went against the norm, they tried new things, and they weren’t afraid to fail.

But why is risk so important for success? Well, first of all, taking risks allows us to push our boundaries and explore new possibilities. It helps us to step out of our comfort zone and to learn from our mistakes. Without risk, we would never innovate, we would never make progress, and we would never reach our full potential.

I had this conversation with a member of The Green Room. She was afraid of not knowing what to say in a media appearance or tripping on her words as English isn’t her first language. I explained how we help experts overcome those fears in the training and I can’t wait to soon share her media appearances to show you RISK and FEAR are directly related to SUCCESS.

Of course, taking risks doesn’t mean being reckless. It’s important to assess the potential consequences of our actions and to make informed decisions. But we also need to understand that there is no such thing as a risk-free life. Even staying in our comfort zone comes with its own set of risks, such as missed opportunities and regrets.

So, if you want to achieve great success, you need to be willing to take great risks. That doesn’t mean you have to jump out of a plane or start a company with no plan. It means you need to be willing to challenge yourself, embrace uncertainty, and keep moving forward even when things get tough.

Remember that success is not guaranteed, but neither is failure.
