Risk-Taking: A Step in the Right Direction.

Imagine yourself sitting at home, curled up on the couch in your living room. You have a steaming mug of hot tea in one hand and the television remote in the other. Wrapped in a cozy blanket, you settle deeper into the couch, enjoying your sense of peace and relaxation. You flip through the channels debating what to watch. Finally, you settle on an old Friends rerun. Then the phone rings and you reluctantly get up and answer. The caller has an offer that catches you completely off guard.

And considering which determine whether or for those times many personal initial limits.

“If I made you an offer that could change your life but would require you taking a leap of faith and a step out of your comfort zone, would you take it?”

Although this scenario is hypothetical, the idea behind it is realistic. Every day, somebody is faced with a choice that requires either taking a risk or staying within their comfort zone. It may not come as a phone call in the middle of a television show, but it definitely happens. Let’s say you are offered an interview for a job. It can open many doors for you — a higher salary, better work environment, opportunities for promotions — but you aren’t the only person offered this position, and quitting your old job is a sacrifice you’ll need to make. Maybe you are going from “in a relationship” to “engaged,” and your new beginning comes in the form of weddings gowns, decorations, banquet halls, and a new life to live with your significant other. However, a happy marriage lasting “forever” isn’t guaranteed. Or perhaps you are moving, whether into a new neighbourhood, a new city, or even a new country, but you don’t know anybody there and feel so alone. Whatever decision it is that you have to make, it can change you and your life. No matter how scary it may be, it is thanks to these chances we take that we can grow, live our lives, and experience the beauty of change.

One of the biggest changes I’ve had in my lifetime was moving. Although my family was transferring me a mere twelve minutes away from my old house, it made a world of a difference. Those twelve minutes meant a new neighbourhood, new people, and a new school — none of which I was ready for. I was a shy and reserved girl, terrified at the prospect of being an outcast. Little did I know that our relocation would change me forever.

Once I settled in and began going to school, I realized how much I liked it there. My schoolmates were nicer, the learning more academic, and the environment so much better. I became social and started to make friends, ones that would stick by me. I also became more academically driven and began truly caring about my grades. Most of all, I really started enjoying school and spending time with the people in it. I saw what it was like to feel completely safe and accepted in a school environment. Needless to say, moving opened a door for me; it changed my life. It allowed me to become the person I never thought I could be. At the time, what I thought could only bring me the worst turned out to be the one thing I truly needed in my life: change.

No matter how your opportunity for change presents itself, accept it. Change is what drives the world forward; it is inevitable. So make smart decisions, think things through, and don’t be afraid to take a risk. It is these risks that may take you to the places you want to be. They can be your new beginning.
